Johnny Chops

Years at MusicFest: 5 (solo)
Releases: Johnny Chops & The Razors (2018), Sticks and Stones (2013)

When he isn’t holding down a solid groove playing bass or writing the occasional Texas Music Chart #1 (Last Last Chance) with the Randy Rogers Band, Johnny Chops is charting his own path through the muddy waters of a soul soaked, roots rock revival. After the 2013 release of his first solo album, Sticks and Stones, he enlisted the sonic expertise of David Abeyta (Guitar, Production -Reckless Kelly) to craft an album of original blues, country, soul and rock that showcases not only his vocal and songwriting abilities, but an all-star band as well. The eponymous “Johnny Chops & The Razors” has already begun a groundswell of attention from for the debut video, “Believer.” The second single and video, “Taking A Chance On Me” features special guests, the Gospel Starz, a family group who have been singing together in churches and venues across the state for almost 40 years. Glide Magazine praised the song’s “bluesy, southern boogie sound…infectious, uplifting chorus.” There is not a weekend that goes by you can’t catch Johnny Chops & The Razors or The Randy Rogers Band live and in person. Be sure to catch both his solo shows and his performances with the Randy Rogers Band during MusicFest 2019!
