Intrepid Artists Int’l Is Thrilled to Welcome Jimmy Carpenter to the Family!

Intrepid Artists Int’l is thrilled to welcome one of the Best Damn Sax players on the planet and one of the absolute nicest guys you’ll ever meet to the Intrepid Family.

Jimmy Carpenter has been a “friend of the agency” dating back close to 30 years. Everyone knows he is lethal on Sax but he’s proven to the world that he is also a great singer, songwriter and Frontman. Whether he is fronting his band or his band featuring the Bender Brass, he has become a Festival Fan Favorite (FFF) and a recognizable, reliable figure in our industry. Fans love Jimmy’s approach and interaction with the other musicians on stage and love his “stand up guy” personality off stage.

Basically, He’s an All Around Bad Ass!  Laissez les bons temps rouler! Get some! Only at Intrepid!

Popa Chubby’s New Double Live Album Available Now!

“A top-tier practitioner of the fusion of blues and muscle-rock, guitarist/vocalist Ted Horowitz- aka Popa Chubby- drops a double disc “live” grouping of originals and covers providing a nonstop surge of energy and emotional punch. Chubby’s consistently blistering, typically intricate axe work is complemented by his full-throttled vocals, soulful and strong enough that he could pass as a stand-alone singer.”
