Charles Adams Prince (1869–1937) was an American bandleader, pianist and organist known for conducting the Columbia Orchestra and, later, Prince's Band and Orchestra.

He made his first recordings as a pianist in 1891 for the New York Phonograph Co. Later in the 1890s he worked as a musical director for Columbia Records and also conducted the Columbia Orchestra.

In 1905, Prince assembled a group called "Princes Band and Orchestra". They recorded for Columbia and featured much of the same material as the Columbia Band.

Prince's own composition, "The Barbary Rag", was recorded by the band in 1913.
