Fun, Charming, & Talent-Driven musical TRIO...covering artists such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Pink, Heart, Boston, Journey, Bruce Springsteen, and more!! While our public gigs are at bars/clubs, we also have extensive backgrounds playing weddings, corporate functions and mitzvahs. So we can even venture into Motown, disco, and other popular music. Chuggalug also writes and performs our own pop/rock music! We are happy to limit our performance at your event to cover tunes only...songs you already know.

We also perform as "Chugg Unplugged," for functions that want less amplified sound. Chugg Unplugged can be a duo with male and female vocals, guitar and keyboard...or a trio with added percussion.
ALL members are well-versed in wedding ceremony music, Jewish traditional music, and most other traditional songs. We are genuinely at home in blue jeans or formal attire. We aim to look good, and sound even better! Thank you for your interest in our band!
