In the tradition of The Kinks and the Small Faces and around the same time as Ian Dury and Squeeze, Chas & Dave wrote and recorded exceptionally witty songs about life in London, performed with a strong affection for all things English reminiscent of many of the great Music Hall artists many years previously. In their case , however, the musical accompaniment to their sharply observant material was neither rock nor punk but solid, no-nonsense Rock’N’Roll style which had been their background and inspiration.

In 2009, Dave’s wife Sue, a driving force behind Chas & Dave’s career, passed away after a brave battle with lung cancer. You can read more about this remarkable woman here. In the wake of this, Dave decided to retire from the band.

In 2011, Chas & Dave reunited for a hugely successful final tour. Highlights included three sold-out nights at the London Indigo2 as well as storming sell-out dates at The Liverpool Cavern and the Glasgow o2 ABC. They plan to end the year with two special nights back at the Indigo2 commemorating the 30th anniversary of 1981’s Christmas Jamboree Bag album.

Chas continues to keep ‘Rockney on the road’ throughout the year with his own band which play a full set of Chas & Dave classics plus Chas’ solo material.
