Melting genres of music together is a talent Charlie Lindner has marinated over time. Charlie has made a name for himself in cities across the US, playing jazz, blues, and especially electronic dance music to push his musical boundaries. He is always striving to entertain in new and exciting ways, performing both sit-down grand piano concerts and the bar/venue dual set shows that offer a taste of jazz in the first set and live electronic dance in the second set.
Lindner’s live electronic concerts fire up the crowd with four on floor grooves and high energy live bass and drums. Mixing in popular remixes and vocal samples puts the Charlie Lindner as boarderline DJ and a showtime crowd-pleaser.
Lindner’s sit down concerts offer an array of styles, from classics like “As Time Goes By” to original Jazz arrangements of the Who, Weezer, and Nirvana. Lindner has also been known to bring random members of the audience on stage unexpectedly, and encourages participants to be inspired by the music and draw a picture during sit-down performances. This unique quirk adds an element of fun and surprise to the shows, and has created a collection of awesome fan art!
Lindner’s past projects showcase his range and depth as a musician, with experience in Progressive Rock (Derelict Brew, 1999), Jazz-Fusion (The Move, 2003), Funk and Soul (Macro Meltdown 2008), Live Electronic Dance Music (The Manhattan Project, 2010), and Jazz (Charlie Lindner Trio, 2015). The Manhattan Project, one of Lindner’s most successful endeavors, has resulted in international tours, sharing the stage with top electronic artists such as Bassnectar, The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Papadosio, Big Gigantic, and many more!
After headlining the Rochester International Jazzfest at Anthology in 2018, Lindner has set out to take his music on the road performing at the New York state fair, Burchfield Penney Auditorium, Rochester Memorial Art Gallery, Bully Hill Winery, and many more venues to come!
