The Inn at Reading Ballroom / Wyomissing
Tickets: $25 (General Admission)

Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way since 1994.

Over the course of his career 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.

His career has always been about moving forward and carving a place for himself in the imposing terrain of the music business, overcoming odds to continue growing and maturing as a creative force. He has built a constantly increasing base of fans across the world, where in many territories he is a star.

A native New Yorker, Horowitz’s first gigs were in the New York City punk. The blues, however, was the foundation of his playing style. He grew up listening to Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin and when he started playing blues in New York club, he understood that the blues should be dangerous.

In his latest album Two Dogs he explores myriad styles and genres while keeping it close to his rock and soul core.
