Special Projects

In addition to the Grant Street Grifters, Pete and Trish play with several other projects in the Pittsburgh area. Allow us to tell you a little about each of them ... 

Charlie Hustle and The Grifters

Charlie Hustle & the Grifters brings together four Pittsburgh-area musicians through a shared appreciation for all types of music, stirring our love of blues, rock, folk and funk into a tasty musical gumbo. Blending original tunes with covers ranging from Dave Van Ronk to Dylan and the Dead, our sets run the gamut from Delta blues and classic rock to jazzy funk and psychedelic jamminess. We make music — people dance. So grab yer dancin' shoes and join the Hustle!

Charlie Hustle and The Pickers

Our unending love for all types of music has led us to form a side project of our side project: Charlie Hustle & the Pickers! We had a chance to open for Nashville phenoms The Barefoot Movement at Thunderbird Café, and have been hustlin' at bluegrass festivals throughout western Pennsylvania. We've shared some high and lonesome harmonies at the January Ice Jam in Butler, Oil Country Bluegrass Festival in Oil City and have brought some bluegrass-style Hustlin' to Leechburg, Lawrenceville, and Latrobe.
