Popa Chubby: Playing the blues with fury
New York City-based guitarist, songwriter and singer Popa Chubby, whose most recent album is called “Prime Cuts,” brings his foot-tapping guitar blues to Fairfield Theatre Co. StageOne Saturday, May 18.
Born Ted Horowitz, the musician is described by his publicity release as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson.” We assume they mean the rock bang Stooges and not the comedic trio, although Chubby is bald like Curly.
His looks, with tattooed arms and a goatee, are imposing but his spirited playing makes Popa Chubby more than accessible to fans of rocking guitar blues.
Fairfield Theatre Co. StageOne, 70 Sanford St., Fairfield. Saturday May 18, 7: 45 p.m. 203-259-1036. Fairfieldtheatre.org
