Chris McCaa, aka Prof Porkchop, at Fairfield Studios for concert and CD release party Sun, July 13, 7 pm
Now performing as Professor Porkchop, McCaa is an accomplished keyboardist/composer, one heavily influenced by the music of New Orleans and the blues scenes of Austin and Memphis..
McCaa has been part of some of the region’s most popular bands, such as A Train, The Red Hots and MTV award-winning group, The Insatiables.
He has opened for such artists as B.B. King, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Ko Ko Taylor, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughn, Keb Mo , Asleep at the Wheel and the late Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Bo Diddley.
With his band, Professor Porkchop and The Dirty Dishes (Jason Coffield, guitar/sax; John Compton, bass; and Curt Watson, drums), McCaa has cut a new CD, “Grits and Graveyards”. It contains all original compositions and finds McCaa evoking a “Randy Newman meets Dr. John” vibe.
