Jason Newsted and the Chophouse Band
September 2, 2016
Jason Newsted and the Chophouse Band play at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2 in the Crystal Bay Casino Red Room.
Jason Newsted and the Chophouse Band began in 1992 when Grammy Award winning, Hall of Fame bassist Jason Newsted founded The Chophouse Records Studio in San Francisco. Following the success of Metallica’s 1991 “Black Album,” The Chophouse Records Studio was conceived by Newsted to assemble friends and comrades from other established acts and groups, to have a special place to enjoy chasing ideas and sounds, having fun playing pure and wild music on breaks and downtime, mixing up wicked musical soup away from rigorous touring schedules and agendas. Now, after 25 years of playing host to a diverse array of talent from varying genres, The Chophouse Band is finally offering a sampling of the musical flavors that have been cooking in these exclusive sessions and personal projects.
