Charlie Wooton was born and raised in Louisiana, where he was exposed to all aspects of music, from the class room to the LaLas (The Dance) in the backwoods and in the streets of New Orleans. His first touring gig was with Zydeco icon Chubby Carrier, where Charlie claims he learned how to put on a show and take care of business. Charlie worked at 3rd Encore Studios in L.A., then made his way to Atlanta where he formed and lead his band Zydefunk, which featured the likes of Oliver Wood, Willie Green, Alvin Ford Jr.and Marcus James Henderson. Needing to get back to his roots, Charlie moved back to Louisiana and since has played with the best of New Orleans: Bonerama, Zigaboo, Johnny Vidacovich, Cyril Neville, Chief Monk Boudreaux and many more. He now tours the world with Royal Southern Brotherhood, consisting of Cyril Neville, Yonrico Scott, Mike Zito, Devon Allman and himself. Recently, Charlie formed a new project, ZABADODAT, with world-renowned percussionist Rafael Pereira.
