LOOPestra: an orchestra of guitar loops


Despite what the multi layered sound might tell you, everything you hear from the Teddy Kumpel LOOPestra on stage is played live. With innovative use of looping technology and his vast experience mangling vintage and modern sounds Teddy effortlessly creates myriad textures that make you think there must be a whole slew of musicians hiding backstage. A veritable funkdafied psychadelic orchestra appearing as a rock trio!


Joining Teddy 1st and 3rd Mondays @midnight at the Rockwood Music Hall are New York’s best and brightest musicians. A different rhythm section every time. Shawn Pelton and James Genus (Saturday Night Live), Keith Carlock (Steely Dan), Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors), Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen (Bill Frisell), and world reknown musicians Tim LeFebvre, Henry Hey, Erik Deutsch, Richard Hammond, Jonathan Maron, Mark Guiliana, Josh Dion, Bob Stander, Allison Miller, Rene Hart, Chris Morrissey, Jojo Mayer, Ben Perowsky, Dan Weiss etc… it’s a rotating cast of NYC music stars.
