The Chop Tops

The Chop Tops are a rockabilly trio from Santa Cruz, California, formed in the mid-'90s by Gary "Sinner" Marsh (vocals). They quickly built momentum in and around their Bay Area groundings with a combination of rockabilly, surf, punk, and psychobilly, and debuted on record with 1997's Revved-Up Rockabilly on Swillbilly Music. Tales of Hot Rods, Hot Broads and Lucky Odds followed in 1999. Always Wild appeared a year later on Rolling Rock, marking the debut of Shelby on guitar. The Chop Tops' blistering 2001 set Evil Six caught the attention of Brian Setzer. Impressed, Setzer included the Chop Tops on his '68 Comeback Special in August 2001. The band's first compilation arrived in 2005, titled Hicks with Sticks: A Town North of Bakersfield, and the Chop Tops' fifth full-length, Triple Deuces, appeared in 2006, followed by Deadly Love four years later. Josh joined the band in 2014, playing upright bass to match Sinner's standup drum kit. The band continued to tour often, and have shared stages with a long list of roots, rock, and punk acts, including Dead Kennedys, the Adolescents, Chuck Berry, Link Wray, John Lee Hooker, Crazy Cavan & the Rhythm Rockers, Wanda Jackson, Dick Dale, the Trashmen, the Blasters, Suicidal Tendencies, and Dwight Yoakam. ~ MacKenzie Wilson

Where's the rest of their albums? Pandora needs to do some serious updating. Full discography newest albums to oldest with all artists! Been really getting into my Psychobilly channel lately. These guys are awesome and the album covers are sick like old school tattoo inspired

First of all, they are from Santa Cruz...NOT SoCal. Secondly, Hotrod is no longer their bass player, Brett Black is and he kicks so much a$$!! You'll never find a band that works harder or is as nice as these guys. True musicians and gentlemen! LOVE these guys!!

Hey boys, you need to seriously think about Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall in Milwaukee. Not a huge venue but it would be a blast and we'd love to see you.

The Chop Tops are one of my favorite bands. These are hard working cats, they tour and do over 240 shows a year. I know I spent most of last year on the road with them. If you ever get a chance dont miss these guys.
