Omaha’s one-of-a-kind nightclub at the Holland features Popa Chubby Jan. 21
Omaha Performing Arts presents electrifying blues singer, guitarist and songwriter Popa Chubby in the 1200 CLUB sponsored by First National Bank. Called “a post-modern Muddy Waters” by New York Times, Popa Chubby will perform in the 1200 CLUB on Saturday, January 21 at 8:00 p.m.
The 1200 CLUB transforms the Holland Performing Arts Center’s most intimate venue, the Suzanne and Walter Scott Recital Hall, into a relaxed nightclub setting where patrons can experience performances by nationally and internationally known artists in folk, jazz and blues. While enjoying the evening’s entertainment, audience members may enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails served right to their table.
At the forefront of modern blues-rock, Popa Chubby is one of the genre’s most popular figures. And he’s an imposing figure at that, weighing more than 300 pounds with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performing style he describes as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson.” Popa Chubby has flipped the blues-rock label around, putting rock in front and the pedal to the metal with fat, scalding guitar sounds and stories plucked from true life.
Tickets for all performances in the 1200 CLUB are $25 in advance and $30 day of the show and are available online at TicketOmaha.com, by calling 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 13th & Douglas streets.
