PORCH CHOPS formed in May of 1988 at a gig on a porch in West Chester, PA. The name was chosen spontaneously that day and the band celebrates its 30th Anniversary upstairs at The Queen. Founding members Brad Riesau and Butch Zito will be joined by longtime members drummer "El Tempo" (aka D. Batteria), Mr. Stevie Hobson (guitar legend/vocals) and alumni fashion guru/guitarist/vocalist Keith "Dieter" Mossberg, as well as Tony Cappella and Dustin Frohlich.
PORCH CHOPS' sounds mutated over the years from the bluegrass, folk and roots music of their early years through their more edgy and expansive jam and hard rock middle period to their current incarnation where just about any style of music from hard core old school country to expansive lengthy improvisation. Punky simplicity and psychedelic blues can wind through their mix of originals and cover tunes.
With over 600 original compositions between the band members and nearly 5 times that many covers in their vast repertoire, you never know what you'll hear when you catch PORCH CHOPS in concert. Rock, blues, country, folk, random nonsense often all at the same time. Be there or be oblong.
This is an All Ages event. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
