The Other Side of Chas & Dave

February 13th 2019

What is “The Other Side of Chas & Dave”?
Over to Dave to explain:

“It had been on Chas’s mind for quite some time to showcase our more laid-back numbers. A lot of people had never heard this side of what we do even though our biggest hit – “Aint No Pleasing You” – was a ballad, as well as “I’m Going Back” being used on the teddy bears Heathrow ad. So when the opportunity came to put together this compilation, it became a labour of love for Chas. In fact, it was the last release that he was involved with and wrote sleeve notes for.
Enjoy listening to our “other side”.
Dave Peacock.

This wonderful collection of songs is released digitally, on CD and coloured vinyl and is out now. Order from our official webstore here https://chasanddave.tmstor.es/

Chas’ Memorial Show Raises Thousands for WaterAid

January 16th 2019

We’re incredibly pleased to announce that Chas’ memorial show raised over £40,000 for WaterAid. This will pay for clean water and sanitation for life for thousands of people. Thank you again to all the fantastic artists who donated their time and talent, and of course the fans for making the event a sell-out as well as your many generous donations. Chas would have been overjoyed with the result.

The show itself couldn’t have gone better – with old friends Eric Clapton and Gary Brooker joining what was already an amazing array of talent to create a memorable finale to a memorable show.

Chas Hodges – A Celebration

October 12th 2018

An evening of music and entertainment in memory of Chas Hodges.

Anyone who knew him would tell you Chas Hodges lived for playing shows.

So there’s no better way of honouring his memory than putting on a show for him featuring artists from across the entertainment world who he shared friendship, history, and admiration with.

The whole evening will be presented by Chas’s long-term friend and musical partner Dave Peacock, and will also feature musical contributions from Chas’s family.

Proceeds from the show will go to Chas’s favourite charity WaterAid.

To quote Dave Peacock:

“It’ll be very strange for me playing a show without my mate. But I’m sure he’d have been well-pleased with the line-up that will be paying tribute to him”.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, 19th of October.

Thank You

September 25th 2018

Chas’ wife Joan, his children, and Dave have been overwhelmed by the many thousands of messages of love and support and would like to thank everyone for those.

For the record, we would like to clarify that Chas did not die of cancer. The doctor’s final diagnosis was pneumonia and the cancer was under control at the time of death.

We feel this is important to state as Chas wanted to bring comfort and hope to people suffering with cancer through his own experience with the disease, and it would mean a lot to him that the hope remains.
