Musician / drummer Charles Haynes came up playing in church. He went to Berklee College of Music where he discovered Wally’s Café, which completely changed his life. He had the opportunity there to play every night …playing different styles from Latin, to Jazz. He also played with Kenny Garrett (saxophonist) and Christian McBride (bass player). After Boston, he worked consistently in New York, touring with Patti LaBelle, Meshell Ndegeocello, Queen, Latifa, Marcus Miller, Kanye West, M.I.A. and Lada Gaga.
