Charlie Stamas is a Tampa Bay performer, 'cover-artist' from Tarpon Springs, Florida. Years back Charlie opened for several nationally-known Christian artists and bands across Central Florida and appeared on local Christian Television numerous times. He has performed 'countless solos' at Pasco County's mega-church Calvary Chapel Worship Center and has acted in several of their musical productions including a lead role. He and Brent Woody, his former music producer also wrote and recorded music jingles.
Charlie and his wife Elaine served as part-time Native American Christian missionaries in Montana assisting resident Pastors for a number of years. They ministered in prisons, drug rehab centers and juvenile detentions centers in and around the Native reservations. Elaine Stamas plays an authentic Native American drone-flute.
Currently Charlie is the Praise and Worship leader at Bound to Christ, a non-denominational church in Shady Hills, Florida led by Pastor Jack Ratliff. This small church works closely with the surrounding neighborhoods, serving the community with a focus on Shady Hills' youth.
Charlie is new to Tampa Bay's 'bar and restaurant music scene'. He is described as a passionate singer, an 'energy singer' and his guitar work, a unique mix of riffs and rhythms. His rendering of Driven to Tears by The Police is a favorite among friends and fans. You'll enjoy his personal style-spin as he plays hits from Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, Steve Perry, Hall & Oates, Matisyahu, favorites by Coldplay, The Frey, Oasis, Tom Petty, Neil Young, The Eagles, the 'Stones', The Beatles.
