Charles Leonard "Charlie" Kunz (August 18, 1896 – March 16, 1958) was an American-born British musician popular during the British dance band era.
Kunz was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and he came to England in 1922 as a pianist in a small dance band.
He was to remain here until his death from a heart attack in 1958. He is buried in Streatham Park Cemetery.
He was such a distinctive and popular pianist that he abandoned his orchestra to concentrate on his piano playing, both at music hall venues and on the BBC. Two of Britain's most famous female vocalists were with his orchestra in the 1930s: Vera Lynn and Welsh songstress Dorothy Squires. His best known crooner was George Barclay
