CS Open - Live Music with Too Sick Charlie!
Capital Speed - Open to the Public! No cover charge. Too Sick Charlie and his 3 string cigar box guitar will pick out hip-grinding licks and lay down some solid beats with his drum kit. He might toss in some harp for good measure! “It’s the small band with the big sound.”

Too Sick was born in a Nassau blue Chevy Bel Air that was being used as a beagle pen on the outskirts of Belleville, Illinois. He performed on the Mississippi River Medicine Show Circuit for several years before transitioning into a practice of medicine. After developing various snake oil cures for ailments that proved unfounded (but very, very profitable) he made his way to Madison, Wisconsin where he lives a quiet, ascetic life of medical study, song writing and robustly varied acquiescence to almost constant temptation.
