JJ Shreds and The Chompers

OffBeat.com Article - JJ Shreds and The Chompers invade New Orleans


My Little Peace of Mind

The lead single My Little Peace of Mind is a modern ode to South Louisiana, written in a cajun style but performed like the E-Street Band. The track cascades into a complimentary but dueling guitar solo with saxophonist Alex Geddes (Durand Jones) going definitively rock and roll under the expert mixing of Mike Harvey (Samantha Fish). The chorus will have you singing along and wondering whether it’s all about a girl or a piece of land.

Da Chomp

The second single, instrumental Da Chomp, takes us into outer space reminding us that JJ Shreds and The Chompers isn’t just a rock band. JJ Shreds is from outer space and The Chompers are mutant alligators. Da Chomp’s cosmic groove is held down by funky bassist Bob Kling (Jovin Webb American Idol) and time keeper extraordinaire Adam Everett (Lena Prima). We definitely know we are in space when Anuraag Pendyal’s  psychedelic keyboard solo lifts off!


Be Good To Each Other

Part funk get-down, part psychedelic meltdown, the chompers take us on a journey from shred metal to spoken word.


Crazy Burrito

What's that you say, you need some Prog Metal Psycho-billy featuring  baritone saxophone in your life? Well JJ Shreds and The Chompers have you covered.
