Chops, Sauerkraut, and Krewtons bring a rockabilly style to Dewey Hall, a great dancing band, with an all age rockin’ appeal. Chops Sauerkraut, and Krewtons have been playing hard edged Rockabilly, Honky Tonk and Garage Rock since the early part of this millennium. Chops and Sauerkraut take influence from Carl Perkins, the Standells, ? and the Mysterians, Frankie Yankovic, Elvis Presley, Bob Wills, and the Cramps. Cranking through B-sides of the last century as well as writing their own Sock-It-To-Me Sound” classics. They have played roadhouses and Honky Tonks from Copake Falls to Craryville for years knocking the socks off fans with the thumping upright bass, funky foot drums, and the rebel rhythm of days gone by.

Oldtone Productions hosts Swing night at Dewey Hall the second Saturday of every month (with the exception of June, when Oldtone will host a Square Dance at Hancock Shaker Village, and September when it is moved to the Oldtone Roots Music Festival)
Oldtone concerts and dances at Dewey Hall are sponsored by Salisbury Bank and Trust: www.salisburybank.com and Big Elm Brewing http://www.bigelmbeer.com/
