Chop Suey Joint

CSJ 

Welcome to the 

International Music Project.


Chop Suey Joint make music. For Fun. All of the instrumentalists and most of the vocalists are professional musicians. This is a side project. A very big side project. And it never stops. Crafting the songs takes years of full-time energy. Sometimes we spring into action and take to the stage with a sixteen piece band. You'll find just about everything we have ever done on this webpage. Hope you enjoy your visit. Download a few songs to take with you. Book us to play. We're all yours.
