Popa Chubby

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.

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 NYC punk scene as a guitarist for what he reflects was a “crazy Japanese special effects performance artist in a kimono called Screaming Mad George who had a horror-movie inspired show. The Blues; however; was the foundation of his playing style.
