Chuck Mauk, has spent his life playing drums in the belly of America. He’s recorded in studios from Texas to Michigan and performed in clubs, arenas, and stink houses of every kind throughout the US and Europe. Chuck has contributed drum performances to recordings that have been used in both television and film. He is a drummer’s drummer, a bass player’s dream, and a studio engineer’s best friend. Over the years, Chuck has sat behind countless singers and guitar players, but has been in charge of every measure performed and recorded. His career illustrates an important point about popular music: whether it is big fat hard rock, slim americana, country, or some other genre concoction, big measures matter. And the musicians who understand that call on Chuck. His playing is born out of the Midwest flatlands. It is big, expansive, and open. It is solid and certain, without pretense or self-flattery. For years, he has reminded some of the best country, rock, and blues musicians in the Midwest that everything important about life exists in the downbeat. Chuck is endorsed by Los Cabos drumsticks, Stone Custom Drums, Kelly Shu and Sabian cymbals. Drummer HuDost, Ramy Essam, Marty Willson-Piper, Five Horse Johnson, All Hail Me, Pete Schlegel, Brooks Atwood.
Music is everything. It's my muse, my happiness, my frustration and my lifeblood. It's what I do. It's all i do.
Honestly, I am doing it. I am a full time drummer, engineer and producer. I am glad to say that music has allowed me to travel the world and to meet amazing people. I am currently drumming for Nashville's HuDost, Egypt's Ramy Essam as well as past tours with Five Horse Johnson, Brooks Atwood, Pete Schlegel and All Hail Me.

John Bonham, Matt Chamberlain, Ringo, Charlie Watts, Jim Keltner and some of my favorite drummers. I really love T Bone Burnett's produciton, Daniel Lanois, and Tucker Martine's production skills as well.
