I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blues Giant Popa Chubby Releases A Bold Double Live Album & Hits The Road For A New World Tour!

Blues Giant Popa Chubby Releases A Bold Double Live Album & Hits The Road For A New World Tour!

Los Angeles, CA - 2015 was one of the busiest years for modern blues ace Popa Chubby. After the release of a stellar studio album in late 2014 I’m Feelin’ Lucky, The Chubbfatha hit the road for a relentless run of shows across both the US and all over Europe. Audiences expecting a subdued, restrained performance from this veteran star of the stage were surely disappointed as Popa came out swinging, with all guns a-blazing, firing off multiple highlights from his 26+ year career including “Sweat,” the hit single from his blockbuster major label debut Booty & The Beast, as well as fan favorites “69 Dollars,” “Life Is A Beatdown” and more! The tour was immensely successful, the energy beyond palapable, and the vibe so undeniable that it quickly became apparent these blistering performances needed to be recorded for posterity. And that’s exactly what happened at 3 venues in France. The result is this stellar double live album Big, Bad and Beautiful, which will be released January 22 on the newly christened Cleopatra Blues imprint, a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records, Inc. Chubby’s live album have always been extremely well received by fans and critics alike since anyone familiar with him knows without a doubt that the stage is where his immensely talented guitar playing skills really come alive! So don’t miss out on what is sure to be one of the most talked about blues releases of the year and catch Popa Chubby on the road with his Big, Bad & Beautiful World Tour kicking off in January!
