Popa Chubby Preaching The Blues in the Heartland

Born in the Bronx in 1960 and playing what he calls ‘The People’s Blues’, Ted Horowitz, known to blues fans as Popa Chubby, played to a packed house at Old Skoolz in Sioux Falls Thursday night (March 21)

Chubby was a child of the 70’s, but takes his musical influences from the 60’s, most notably Jimi Hendrix and Cream, employing the same guitar-driven power trios as his heroes did and sporting a Hendrix t-shirt on stage.

Popa was in a great mood as he rolled into town, bringing his word and blues to the heartland as he made his way from Nebraska, to Sioux Falls and into Iowa on his way back home.

He gave fans a full helping of his upcoming release Universal Breakdown Blues (due out May 28) mixed in with a couple of Hendrix covers (see video below!) and a beautiful version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. The last part of his second set was devoted to requests, and boy did the capacity crowd request! Chubby broke out some classics from Booty and the Beast and Deliveries After Dark leaving the fans on their feet and begging for more.

There was a room full of smiling faces both in the audience and on the stage, leaving little doubt that New York City’s blues man will return to town in the not too distant future.
