Charlie Ellicott started out in the music business in 1966 playing guitar and acting as manager/booker in a college band in Philadelphia. Originally from Long Island, he left college in 1967 and moved to New York City. In 1968 while managing a head shop on St. Mark's Place, Charlie heard that Bill Graham was hiring a new crew around the corner on Second Avenue at the soon to be opened Fillmore East. Charlie started working for Bill when the Fillmore East opened on March 8, 1968. In July of 1968 Charlie moved to San Francisco and took up residence with The Flamin' Groovies at the " Eleventh Avenue Circus" (thank you Barry Melton!). He went back to work for Bill Graham as stage manager at Fillmore West and Winterland until 1970.

        In 1979 Charlie went on the road with Maria Muldaur as a roadie and after one tour was promoted to Tour Manager. In 1983 Charlie retired from the road and established his first booking agency, Marin Artists. Clients included Maria Muldaur, David Crosby, Doug Sahm, Dan Hicks and Merl Saunders.

        In January of 1991 Charlie established Ellicott Talent Group.  A partial list of artists represented by ETG through 2009 includes Elvin Jones, Jimmy Smith, Ramsey Lewis, Shirley Horn, Nancy Wilson, Branford Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Charlie Byrd, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Randy Brecker, Benny Golson, Kevin Mahogany, Jimmy McGriff, Hank Crawford and others.

        In June of 2013 Charlie moved on and created his third agency, Alpha Dog Artists, representing Jazz great Benny Green, R&B legends Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, Blues masters Chris Cain, Bex Marshall, The GuitArsonists, and Latin Rock legends, Malo (Suavecito).
