Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Charley began his entertainment career on the runway commentating teenage fashion shows in local malls, state fairs and private venues. At eighteen he began hosting West Florida beauty pageants, which eventually led him in front of Tampa’s Elite as entertainer for the prestigious Miss Ybor City Pageant. Soon after, he decided to hit the LA scene where paths have led him to Television, Film, On and Off Camera Hosting, Stage and most predominately, the world of music.
His live appearances include such intimate and elaborate venues as the Love Lounge, the Cinegrill, San Francisco’s Plush Room, The Hollywood Palace, Gatsby’s in Mykonos, Greece (for the Twelve Gods Party) and the House of Blues in LA. His television appearances include Days of Our Lives, the infamous "provocative" scene in David E. Kelly’s Snoops and as a co-star acting and singing guest on The Nanny with Fran Drescher.
Los Angeles club goers will remember Charley in his weekly hosting and performing at RAGE nightclub in his self produced "Charley Geary Variety Showcase." Appearing with Charley there were such notables as singer Laura Pallas, comic Aisha Tyler, comic Jason Stuart, and the alternative rock group T.H.E.M.
Charley is well known for his "Holiday" shows that attract a cross-section of ages and audiences. These presentations range from contemporary to pop and standards. A recent outing for the holidays titled "Christmas, Remember…" found Charley on stage in a semi autobiographical musical earning him audience acclaim. Many of Charley’s holiday performances raise funds for charities that include one of his favorites, "Tuesday’s Child."
Recently Charley was seen at the Shrine Auditorium on stage with the legendary Barbara Streisand as part of her back-up choir at the Democratic Convention in Los Angeles. The event was conducted by songwriter/producer Bob Esty (Main Event/Fight), who also directed Charley in his starring role as "Ben" in the backer’s audition of the new up and coming production "Six Pac" at CBS Television City.
Charley also recorded the theme song, "Love Yourself (Take a Chance)" for the award-winning short film "Shoulda-Coulda-Woulda".
In the summer of 2000, Charley released his first dance single titled "I Love Love" which brought him local dance club notoriety and opened the doors to the most current and biggest project of his career, his first album "Listen to the Voice…!" The CD, currently being produced by LCM Productions is scheduled to be released mid March, 2001, through independent record label Butterknife Records.
Charley’s union affiliations include SAG and AFTRA as well as ASCAP membership for song writing and publishing.
We are very please that Charley is a cast member for THE RAINBOW REVUE.
