Charles Street Messengers creates music that appeals to the head, heart, and hips—danceable grooves with infectious melodies and jazzy horns. Merging influences from their members’ diverse musical backgrounds, CSM brings their special blend of jazz, soul, funk, and world rhythms to the Pacific Northwest.


They have performed at festivals, clubs, and dance events from Vancouver B.C. to Portland, OR, including Northwest Folklife Festival, Yakima Family 4th of July, The Royal Room, and Nectar Lounge. Members of CSM have performed throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and beyond, and can be seen performing regularly at venues all across the PNW.


CSM released their first album on June 27, 2018. The self-titled set’s adventurous songwriting will appeal to fans of Soulive, classic Chicago, Industrial Revelation, The True Loves, and 45th St Brass.
