Port Chuck is a unique musical group made up entirely of actors from the iconic soap opera
General Hospital. These easy-on-the-eyes singers have amassed a large following of fans who are clamoring to see their favorite
actors sing their hearts out. With a style that is half boy band, half cover band, this stylish and highly-entertaining group
of hunky actors has more to offer than good looks. With classic rock songs like "The Boys Are Back in Town," "American Woman"
and "Don't You Want Me," this unique band brings the fun and fancy-freeness of laid back cover band music to the masses. There's
no pretention here. These T-shirt and jeans type guys are there to entertain their growing number of fans and to have a great
time. It's the party you want to be invited to. Whether you're there to stare at the soap opera physiques of these handsome
leading men, or you're to hear some great music from a group of talented singers, you will find what you were looking for
with Port Chuck.
While all of the members of Port Chuck have impressive resumes, Steve Burton,
the band's creator has found himself in some impressive company. He began his career on the soap opera Days of Our Lives before
finding his way to Port Charles (where the name Port Chuck comes from), the fictitious town on General Hospital. He went on
to snag a Daytime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role on the soap opera. Burton left his TV home for a few years
to star alongside industry heavyweights like James Gandolfini and Robert Redford and to appear in Steve Spielberg's award-winning
miniseries Taken." But it was upon his return to General Hospital that Burton found inspiration. Why not combine his love
of classic rock and working with soap opera actors? And the rest is history.
About the Artist
On the long-running
soap opera General Hospital, Steve Burton, Scott Reeves, Brandon Barash and Bradford Anderson play dramatic characters who
are always involved in something that warrants a long, introspective look into the distance as the camera pans away. But the
actors who play these characters couldn't be further from their onscreen alter egos. These laidback guys aren't looking for
a night of drama. They are looking to entertain those who came out to listen to them and to have a little fun along the way.
band of actors first got together in 2010, and has been performing and touring ever since. Not only have they become a sensation
with General Hospital fans, but they have become a favorite of music fans everywhere. They have the musical chops to bring
in big crowds, and the good looks to keep their female fans smiling. They have performed in cities all over the country, released
two albums and appeared on shows like Extra with Mario Lopez. They are becoming celebrities outside of their personas on the
long-running soap, and enjoying every moment of it.
While working on the set
of the iconic soap opera General Hospital, Steve Burton, Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash and Scott Reeves became very close.
They began discussing their love of music and their affinity to play and sing. That's when Burton got the idea to form a band.
The other musically-talented actors jumped on board and soon they were pounding out versions of their favorite songs like
"The Boys Are Back In Town" and "American Woman." During breaks and between scenes, the group honed their skills and found
musical harmony. It wasn't long before they were booking local gigs and finding instant stardom. Their breakthrough was a
gradual one, but they have basked in the glory of it all. What started as a creative outlet for these talented actors has
become a chance for these soap opera studs to act like rock stars. Fans are showing up in droves to experience this one-of-a-kind
band, and it seems as if their career is just getting started.
Whether you're a General
Hospital fan or you just want to hear some of your favorite rock songs performed by this unique cover band of sorts, you will
find a performance by Port Chuck an enjoyable one. As the guys come out on stage, they bring with them their signature soap
opera good looks and their laid back, boy-next-door charm. Their female fans have been known to holler and cheer for these
hunky singers before they even begin to play, but it's all part of the atmosphere at a Port Chuck concert. The four band members
take turns singing solo, and when they get to the "Jessie's Girl" portion of the set, they join forces and harmonize this
musical tribute to former General Hospital alumni—Rick Springfield.
And although actors don't always have the
best track record when they make the switch to becoming rock stars, this band seems to pull it off. They don't take themselves
too seriously. They are just there to have a good time, sing some classic songs and entertain their adoring fans. And their
fast-paced, energetic performances leave fans begging for more.
