(April 13, 2022): A couple nice shows coming up. Easter Sunday afternoon, April 17 at Winston's in Ocean Beach. Easter Wednesday, April 20 at En Fuego in Del Mar. Live shows are back!

(Dec 30, 2021): We are still not playing traditional gigs, but looking forward to making an early morning return on January 16th to play on the course at the Carlbad Marathon. We can't wait to see you all go past us, whether at a 6-minute mile pace or a 16-minute mile pace.

(August 13, 2021): "Hiya", Charlie's album was nominated for a San Diego Music Award. Everybody on the record sounded like a million bucks. Thanks to SDMA folks for recognizing it!

(October 10, 2020): Charlie's "solo" album just came out: Chuck Charles "Hiya". We have "solo" in quotes because everybody in Tongue And Groove is on a couple of the tracks. Hope you all like it even half as much as we do.

Music for people who like music. No recorded albums yet, so we're posting some initial raw recordings from rehearsals til we have more polished stuff for you.

In the meantime, we'd love to see you at a live show. Thank you for supporting live acts. It's how we get new, exciting music.
