his year, Popa Chubby, who was born Ted Horowitz, marks twenty-five years of rocking the blues as Popa Chubby. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1991, 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.

He has built a constantly increasing base of fans across the world, where in many territories he is a star.
