Additional Information

In 1995, Sinner formed The Chop Tops so he’d have a way to share his love

of rockabilly music – but he also enjoyed other musical styles (like punk, surf,

and psychobilly) and didn't want to stop playing them completely. So the band

blended all of their favorite music genres together to create their own special

sound. The Chop Tops even coined the phrase "Revved-Up Rockabilly" to

describe their unique combination of rebel music styles. As the band progressed,

Sinner developed his wild style of lead vocals combined with drumming while

standing up. When guitarist Shelby joined in 1999, his talented riffs and high-
energy stage presence were a perfect fit for The Chop Tops. Shelby brought a

wealth of experience from previously playing in many San Francisco Bay Area

bands and jamming with the likes of Chris Isaac. In 2008, Brett became the

upright bassist, having formerly played with several popular Los Angeles 'Billy

bands. Brett's string-slapping skills added the finishing touch to the “Revved-
Up Rockabilly” trio. Together, Sinner, Shelby, and Brett have turned The Chop

Tops into one red-hot rockin' act. The band takes their breed of rockabilly music

across the U.S. to perform more than 200 shows every year. Thanks to their

music's unique style, blurring the lines between genres, they've shared the stage

with the likes of Adolescents, Agent Orange, Alvis Wayne, Angry Samoans, Big

Sandy, The Blasters, Brian Setzer, BR549, Chuck Berry, Danny B. Harvey, Dead

Kennedys, Deke Dickerson, Demented Are Go, Dick Dale, D.O.A., Dr. Know,

Dwight Yoakam Band, Guana Batz, Gene Vincent’s Original Blue Caps, Glen

Glenn, John Lee Hooker (R.I.P.), Lee Rocker, Levi Dexter, Link Wray (R.I.P.),

Rockers, Marky Ramone, Ray Campi, Ray Condo (R.I.P.), The Reverend Horton

Heat, Rip Masters, Royal Crown Revue, Rusty York, Suicidal Tendencies,

Wanda Jackson and many more legendary greats! So get in your ride, step on

the gas, and race down to see them play...you'll be glad you did!
