Chops, Sauerkraut, and Krewtons bring a rockabilly style to Dewey Hall, a great dancing band, with an all age rockin' appeal. Chops Sauerkraut, and Krewtons have been playing hard edged Rockabilly, Honky Tonk and Garage Rock since the early part of this millennium. Chops and Sauerkraut take influence from Carl Perkins, the Standells, ? and the Mysterians, Frankie Yankovic, Elvis Presley, Bob Wills, and the Cramps. Cranking through B-sides of the last century as well as writing their own Sock-It-To-Me Sound" classics. They have played roadhouses and Honky Tonks from Copake Falls to Craryville for years knocking the socks off fans with the thumping upright bass, funky foot drums, and the rebel rhythm of days gone by.
Chops Laconte is one of the best rockabilly bull bass players. He has gigged as the bassist with Brian Setzer, and tours regularly with the Luster Kings, and the legendary Wanda Jackson. He was a founding member of the 1990's New York band Slick Pelt.
