Popa Chubby

In the Beer Tent

Popa Chubby

Voodoo DeVillePrior to the start of the main stage show and during the breaks between bands, attendees will be treated to some fine Blues sounds from the Voodoo DeVille Band.

 

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, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson," Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre’s most popular figures.

The Blues is the foundation of his playing style. He recalls, "Since I’d grown up on Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin, when I started playing blues in New York clubs I understood that the blues should be dangerous, too. It wasn’t just from playing in punk bands. Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters were dangerous men. They’d cut or shoot you if they thought it was necessary, and Little Walter packed a gun and wouldn’t  hesitate to use it. That danger is a real part of the Blues and I keep it alive in my music.”

Popa Chubby is his own man for better or worse. He reflects, "I’m living in a wild time, and that is where the inspiration is drawn from. There are my issues, but the picture is much bigger than me and my situation. Everything is breaking down in the world. The lines are being redefined. We all need something.”

 

Little Red Rooster

 
Little Red Rooster

Since their formation in 1988, they have become one of the Delaware Valley’s premier blues bands, consistently delivering their own brand of blues, always combined with a crowd-pleasing, high-energy performance and a whole lot of fun! The band has built a community of friends and fans of the blues, one that cannot be matched! They have performed at clubs and festivals throughout the United States, and have even toured Europe on multiple occasions. To date, they have released 6 CDs of original material, all of which were widely acclaimed by critics and fans alike!

In February of 2015, the band was inducted into the International Blues Hall of Fame, and in 2016, they were voted Best Band in Bucks County, PA, by the organization Bucks Happening. Their passion and respect for the music, along with their ability to fully engage their audiences, virtually guarantees a phenomenal live blues experience. They’re just… Terrific!

The Blue Plate Specials

 
Blue Plate Specials  

The Blue Plate Specials have just joined legends Dibbs Preston and The Rockats; Charlie Gracie; and Robert Gordon on Lancaster, PA-based Lanark Records. The Blue Plate Specials recorded their first full- length album with the Lanark family in September, 2014, and it's a scorcher! BPS is a 5-piece Jump/Swing/Blues/Rockin'/Roots band with smokin' tunes and tight arrangements that hit the ground running, hold the corners, stop on a dime and give 9 cents change. When they hit the stage the party starts and the joint jumps until closing time.

Charlie does the songwriting and is out front with vocals and guitar. He loves to interact with the crowd and never fails to get them dancing and make them a part of the show. When The Blue Plate Specials serve it up, adult beverages is consumed, commandments is broke, babies is conceived and a rockin’ time is had by all.
