Eugene Chadbourne

Eugene Chadbourne – or Doc Chad, as he prefers – is known as a jazz or avant-garde guitarist & banjo player but that would be underselling him. Over his 40+ years of performing, Doc Chad has cultivated a truly idiosyncratic & unique place in American music. His solo career began with acoustic guitar explorations in the spirits & veins of jazz giants Anthony Braxton & Derek Bailey, leading to early collaborations with John Zorn & Henry Kaiser. His continued explorations & collaborations are legion — highlights include fronting Shockabilly; inventing the electric rake; a one-off collab with Camper Van Beethoven called Camper Van Chadbourne; his LSD C&W.
