Chop Suey Joint
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.
