NYC Axe-Mangler Popa Chubby at Green Parrot
New York City singer/songwriter/axe-mangler Popa Chubby promises to have Green Parrot patrons howling when he explodes onto The Parrot stage.
Popa Chubby’s music, forged in the toughness that is New York City, takes blues to the cutting edge, fusing with 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.
