For VIP & Table Reservations Info:
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" garnered the attention of TheBoot.com 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. The Glide Magazine premiere praised the song's "bluesy, southern boogie sound...infectious, uplifting chorus."
“Ten Cent Talkers” the third single and video from the album takes a different turn. Written, produced and directed by Johnny, it takes a hilarious stab at the world of TV news and politics, all set to the beat of thumping upright bass, smoking guitar licks and rapid fire lyrics.
Kevin Daniel recently finished his second EP, Myself Through You, which was recorded at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, NY, and produced, engineered, and mixed by Ben Rice. Kevin gathered together a host of talented, professional musicians from all backgrounds for the project, which resulted in a richly recorded blend of genres and instruments. “When I started thinking about this EP, I knew I wanted to get some of the best musicians I know in the studio. With Ben’s help we created a space where people could come in, lay down their own version of the parts, and create something unique to them as well as the record,” says Kevin.
Featuring instrumentation as diverse as pedal steel guitar, flugelhorn, and bluegrass banjo, the songs on Myself Through You deliver sublime lamentations of the country-tinged Americana Daniel has created over the last few years. The EP’s title track Myself Through You’ is Daniel’s attempt to take a subjective look at his own life. “I often find myself trying to take a step back and see life from someone else’s eyes,” says Kevin. “This song came into being at a time where I was really struggling to understand someone else’s point of view. I think we all struggle with that daily.”
