Poke Chop and the Other White Meat play blues and roots music for your listening and dancing pleasure. While performing anywhere between Boston, Mass. and Jackman, Maine, the band also hosts the official Maine Blues Society jams every Thursday at La Cage in Lewiston, and plans to be resuming a weekly Tuesday night jam in Portland in the near future. Speaking of jams, PTOWM also hosts the annual Saturday night jam at the North Atlantic Blues Festival, where headliners and local musicians get up on stage and create some spontaneous blues magic!
Personnel are Ron "Poke Chop" Gill on guitar, vocals and harmonica; Chad Thorne, bass and vocals; and Tom DelRossi, drums and vocals. Together these three represent over 100 years of combined playing and performing experience.
The band has recently released its first CD, "Pork Pie Special," consisting of all-original music and available in CD format or by download on Bandcamp. Poke Chop and the Other White Meats can be found at www.poke-chop.com, on Facebook, and at any number of classy venues throughout New England!"
