The Judy Chops are an indomitable force in the VA music scene, rocking audiences with original tunes, remixed covers, and mash ups since 2008. Averaging over 150 shows a year, the Chops are a high-energy 7 piece Americana group who delight in wowing audiences throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. Their many festival appearances and shows have included opening for acts like Lake Street Dive, The Black Lillies, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, David Mayfield Parade, J.P. Harris & the Tough Choices, and Igor & Red Elvises have proven the Chops to be consummate performers.

The band’s sound is built around strong three part harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, baritone banjo ukulele, searing electric guitar and a unique rhythm section featuring upright bass, cocktail drums, and a dynamic horn section with occasional fiddle to round out the mix. Stylistically, the band blends elements of swing, blues, rock-a-billy, classic country and western, and soul with a modern flair, for a unique, genre-defying musical experience.
