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 Isaak. 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. So get in your ride, step on the gas, and race down to see them play… you’ll be glad you did!
