The Judy Chops Swing By Cosmic American Jamboree

WTJU 91.1 FM/Streaming at WTJU.net
Thursday, May 19, 2011
Noon-2 pm

Tune in to Cosmic American Jamboree at noon on Thursday, May 19th, to hear Staunton area band The Judy Chops [facebook] perform live on WTJU. The Judy Chops perform in a variety of American roots styles, including, swing, rockabilly, boogie and 50’s style rock and roll.
The Judy Chops formed in late 2008. As the band has grown they have embraced the idea of the "new old school." Culling together their vast influences the band has developed a sound that is roots music with a modern twist.The Judy Chops strive to subvert the idea of genres, and labels. Influenced heavily by their musical families and friends, as well as a multitude of popular and independent artists The Judy Chops are a band that has been connecting with audiences of all ages, creeds and colors.

The Judy Chops played over 60 shows in Virginia, West Virginia, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania in 2010, landed slots on several great local and regional festivals throughout the summer The band just released their debut acoustic EP "Modern Vintage Volume One" and are looking to release a full length album in the spring of 2011, with a tour to follow.

Equally at home in a smoky bar, or a concert hall, this band has been hailed for their musicianship, stage presence, and diligent work ethic. In addition, Molly and Sally can be heard on the soundtrack for the documentary "Coal Country", and Bill and Molly can be heard weekly on WXJM Live, the #1 Live Music Broadcast in the Shenandoah Valley.
