In 1984 his "break" came when he convinced the manager of the JULIEN HOTEL to set up a piano bar. He performed there for about one year. Bregman was the original 'house musician' at the Tollbridge Inn and entertained thousands of diners for over 13 years. He left the Tollbridge to go on the road as road manager and pianist with The Russ Morgan Orchestra, traveling nationally and internationally.
The Chuck Bregman Trio has played throughout the tri-state area. Playing solo for over twenty-two years, he entertained club audiences in many states with his solo piano bar and lounge entertainment. He also composed his own music. Bregman is considered one of the finest acoustic piano entertainers of modern time.
Chuck is the grandson of Henry BREGMAN.
