Charles Ecker

Former Utican in Big Talent Event

Utica native son Charles Ecker, who now leads The C.R. Ecker Band based in Los Angeles, needs our vote Today and Tomorrow at the secure site to get into the Top Two in a major music talent competition in Europe, much like a radio version of 'American Idol'. Or if you would like to vote through his band's website, you can get on Google or Yahoo by clicking The C.R. Ecker Band (Behind the Wall) All his songs are posted for free streaming. The band has been leading through most of the eight week elimination competition and two will advance on Sunday, when new balloting will decide the contest among the Top Two.

Charles was born in Utica and grew up in Clinton before moving to Los Angeles in 1984.

-- FYI In the mid-70, he was anchorman at WUTR-TV as Charles Ecker Matflerd.

Charlie, I can't believe I found you. I have always wondered what happened to you. I have been married and widowed and am now living in Myrtle Beach, SC. I would love to hear from you. Look me up on Facebook and I will reply.

Thanks to all in the Mohawk Valley who voted for The C.R. Ecker Band in the Starliners competition. When all the votes were counted, we tied with MacAdoo-Perkins of Missouri as Top Country Artists of the Year. A big honor to win a Starliners Award!
