Restaurant/bar/venue hybrids created by country musicians aren't just for lower Broadway in Nashville. Roanoke, Texas, a small town outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, will become home to Randy Rogers's new project - ChopShop Live.
Rock Libations (consisting of Josh Babb and Sean Clavir) joined forces with Rogers in order to form this combination of a restaurant and small venue that can morph from holding a cozy 250 fans up to 1200. Friend and co-owner Babb stated, "Having Randy's expertise to guide us along our first music venue has already proven to be invaluable. Both Sean and myself are so grateful to have him on board."

Located at 309 South Oak Street, Rogers will host an opening party on July 14 where Texans will be able to take a close look at ChopShop Live for the first time. Live music will be housed inside of a curved, contemporary building leading into a back porch area complete with picnic tables, salvage yard pieces, and shipping containers for private events.
As the first venue of its kind in Roanoke, ChopShop Live expects to draw Texans from surrounding towns and those living in the DFW area. Rock Libations runs another ChopShop 30 minutes East in Carrollton, Texas where diners can also get American cuisine coming from a fresh scratch kitchen.
