In 2012 Ruf Records released the self titled CD by the South's new favorite band featuring Cyril Neville, Charlie Wooton, Yonrico Scott, Bart Walker and Tyrone Vaughun. The band debuted in the Top Ten of Billboard, iTunes, and Amazon's charts. Vist RSB's site for more information and tour dates.


In 1997 Charlie Wooton founded a band which has been a staple around Atlanta's Jam Band and Roots music scene for 15 years before continuing in New Orleans where he now lives and incorporates some of the city's best players into the group.
​There is no doubt that the Charlie Wooton Project has a mind of it's own but you can hear influences from bass greats George Porter, J​​​​r. to Jaco Pastorius.

​The Charlie Wooton Project has received a string of great press ​​in Relix, Blues Revue, Boston Globe, and Georgia Music Magazine.
Charlie played with New Orleans own Bonerama! from 2011-2013
​Bonerama is a brass funk rock band from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Bonerama was formed in 1998 by trombone players Mark Mullins and Craig Klein, who, from 1990 up until late 2006, were also members of Harry Connick Jr.'s big band.

Bonerama may be a horn driven band but there is more rock infused into the band's sound. Bonerama covers everything from Zepplin to Black Sabbath songs which are woven into the band's set of cleverly written material.

When not touring with RSB Charlie tours with Bonerama. Please check out the band's site at

“They’re all monster players who have pulled off an interesting feat: making music that sounds timelessly rock, blues or funk and yet doesn’t sound quite like any of their individually better known projects.

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, Bart Walker, Tyrone Vaughun and himself. Recently, Charlie formed a new project, ZABADODAT, with world-renowned percussionist Rafael Pereira, featuring Laura Reed!
