Valerie Rochon chats with the great Charles Lewis just prior to the start of his musical set. Charles Lewis is an Arizona favorite and started his musical career in Phoenix at the Elks Lodge in 1954 while attending Arizona State University. He has played at just about every musical venue in Arizona, including a stint at the Phoenix Playboy Club in 1962. He can probably be remembered best when he was with his own Charles Lewis Quintet. He is an active composer and teaches piano privately. He is an inductee into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame and received a standing ovation at the end of his set at the Century Skyroom & Bobby C's Reunion.
