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 throughout the state. They ministered in prisons, drug rehab centers and juvenile detentions centers in and around the Native reservations. Elaine 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 relatively new to Tampa Bay's 'bar and restaurant music scene'. He's been described as a ‘passionate singer’, an 'energy singer'. You'll enjoy his refreshing style-spin as he performs a diverse mix of songs between acoustic guitar and piano/keyboard, playing hits from Ed Sheeran, Lucas Graham, Maroon 5, Passenger, X-Ambassadors, Matisyahu, Audioslave, The Black Crowes, The Lumineers, favorites by Coldplay, The Frey, Oasis, Hall & Oates, Neil Young, The Eagles, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles.
