The Struggle Is Real Buffalo Music Podcast, Allentown Music and JUST PIZZA & Wing Co. are privileged to bring you Jammin’ for Jessica: A Fundraiser for Jessica Cameron.

The evening will include performances by:
RJ DeMarco (of Fernway)
The Alison Pipitone Band
Irving Klaws
Wyatt Coin

-Tickets: $18 ADV/$22 DOS/$35 VIP
-Ages: 18+

About Popa Chubby:
If there’s one thing I want people to know about me, it’s that I’m a survivor, says Popa Chubby. Here’s my story: My dad died when I was seven. I was abandoned and raised myself. I moved to New York City when I was 18 and started playing music. I got a huge heroin habit and ended up strung out on the streets until I was in my early twenties. I started playing again and got away from drugs and never went back, and then I got into the New York blues scene of the early 90s, and here I am today. ‘Here’ is at the forefront of modern blues-rock, where the mix of intensity and integrity captured on Popa Chubby’s Back To New York City has made him one of the genres 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…
