    Best Known For

    Captain Carl has been the funky white boy moonwalking and breakdancing his way through gigs with his 80's tribute band Neon Nation and the 10 piece soul band Barela for quite a few years. Aside from the shaggy 70's look, he's bringing the same funk, groove, verve, and 70's swagger he's been bringing to the stage for years. When he's on the mic, prepare to put the champagne down and boogie.
