Chuck Berry

Charles Anderson Edward Berry is nothing less than the heart of American music.

With over six decades of dedication to the form and structure of our sonic roots, he has helped spin the shape of the music industry with landmark hits, “Maybelline”, “Johnny B. Goode”, “Roll Over Beethoven” and more.

Fueled by his iconic guitar playing, song craftsmanship, and renegade rebel spirit, Berry has molded our perception of the very nature of music, while bridging cultural and generational divides.

The St. Louis native was honored as the “Father of Rock N Roll” by the Missouri Music Hall of Fame on Friday evening, August 30th, 2013.
