      EVENT DETAILS
      POPA CHUBBY

      with CoolCore, Kelley, Ellis, and Flynn
      Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way for more than 25 years. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1994, he has been a force of to be reckoned with on the guitar, and his tempestuous, soulful playing has never been more powerful. An imposing figure with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performance style he describes as the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motrhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson," Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genres most popular figures.His career has always been about moving forward and carving a place for himself in the imposing terrain of the music business, overcoming odds to continue growing and maturing as a creative force. He has built a constantly increasing base of fans across the world, where in many territories he is a star. A native New Yorker, Horowitz's first gigs were in the NYC punk scene as a guitarist for what he reflects was a "crazy Japanese special effects performance artist in a kimono called Screaming Mad George who had a horror-movie inspired show." Right from the start he was immersed in rock n roll as theater, and learned from George and others playing CBGBs at the time that included the Ramones, the Cramps, Richard Hell, whose band, the Voidoids he joined that rock n roll should be dangerous. He reflects, "Musicians like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols werent just bands. They were a threat to society."
