Here at Beards of Denver, we are thankful for ALL the beards we encounter, but we are especially grateful for meeting Charlie during the Underground Music Showcase at the end of July. Charlie and his bad-ass beard were preparing to perform at UMS with the band Thanks to Philo, a blues-rock-reggae crew Charlie’s been the drummer in for three years. Charlie, who lives in Parker, says people love his beard and he gets a lot of attention for it (why are we not surprised he has other beard-groupies?) The only reason he has shaved in recent memory is for a charity event for the Children’s Miracle Network; obviously, his is one philanthropic mane, folks. The lesson here is ONLY shave if it’s ABSOLUTELY necessary for the children. Charlie’s family has polarizing opinions on his beard: his mom and his sweetheart love it while his dad isn’t a fan (likely because he only has a ‘stache himself). We’re with Charlie’s ladies on this one; a man with this stylin’ of a beard is apt to keep smart women around! Keep up the good growth, Charlie!
