When Stallings plays, the blues aren't so blue


December 03, 2006|By Tiesha Higgins | Tiesha Higgins,Special to The Sun

Charles "Big Daddy" Stallings is a veteran truck driver delivering goods throughout the area by day. When night hits, he's in the studio or at home stretching blues music in a new direction, intermingling it with rock, R&B, jazz and anything else that he thinks will fit his genre.

"What's special is what he's doing with the blues," says J. Thomas, a fellow musician and Stalling's publicist. "He's actually redefining the blues by incorporating other elements of music with the blues."

Charles "Big Daddy" Stallings will perform from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Dec. 16 at the Full Moon Saloon, 1710 Aliceanna St. in Fells Point. Call 410-276-6388 for ticket information.
