A rough, gruff, and tough bluesman to the core, he is at the forefront of modern blues-rock, where the mix of intensity and integrity has made him one of the genres most popular figures. His last performance on StageOne was a prime example of how the stage trumps a sterile studio when it comes to Popa’s gritty sound.
He knows no musical genre boundaries. He rocks. He funks. He goes from “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” (1939) to B.B. King’s “Rock Me Baby” (1964) to some badass originals that all feature his signature soul-shouting and those pin-pricks of electric lead that are like acupuncture for the soul.
