Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center presents Lucky Chops at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 27 in the Hoke Theatre.

Redefining what it means to be a brass band, Lucky Chops stormed onto the scene in 2015. With roots in New York’s LaGuardia Arts High School, the band started out performing on the streets of New York and in small venues around the city. With a mission to capture the energy of a rock band with the dance-ability of an EDM DJ (electronic dance music DJ), the group took their act to the New York City subway system where they grew a legion of followers.

It was one tourist from South America who posted a cell phone video of the band in March of 2015 that changed everything. Within days, millions of people had viewed the video. Lucky Chops found themselves on a European tour which included shows in Denmark and France, further expanding their global fan base. Upon returning to New York, Lucky Chops went back into the subway and began performing at clubs. Now with a large fan base and over 40 million views on their videos, Lucky Chops is setting out to show the world the pure magic that happens every time they play together.

Stocker Arts Center offers dinner prior to the Performing Artists Series shows. Dinner for Lucky Chops will be held in the Norton Culinary Arts Center next to Stocker Arts Center and seatings are at 5:45 p.m. or 6:15 p.m. Tickets for dinner are $30 per person and must be purchased at least a week prior to the event. Valet parking is also available for this show for $5 per car and can be purchased either in advance or can be paid in cash to the valets the night of the performance.
