Papa Chubby at Green Parrot
“Bluesman For The New Millenium”
New York City singer/axe-mangler Popa Chubby promises to have Green
Parrot patrons rolling at a heart-thumping pace when he explodes onto
the stage Monday and Tuesday June 5th and 6th with shows beginning at
10 P.M. both nights including a 5 P.M. “sound check” on Tuesday.
Popa Chubby’s music, forged in the toughness that is New York City,
takes blues to the cutting edge, where it highfives its contemporary
cousins rock, rap, and hip hop. With his razor sharp, biting guitar,
vocals from the gut, and top-notch skill as a songwriter, Popa Chubby
artfully combines the rootsiness of blues with the more modern urban
elements of today’s popular music.
Popa Chubby has singlehandedly spearheaded a New York City sub-genre
of blues. The New York sound is as complex as the city itself, melding
a variety of street sounds from hip hop, punk, straight-up rock, R&B,
into an unadulterated blues format. “New York is a melting pot of
social and musical cultures, and New York City Blues is an amalgam of
all those styles,” explains Chubby.
