Chappaqua Wrestling was formed in Manchester in late 2017 by songwriters Charlie Woods & Jake Mac. Since moving back south, they have been joined by Jude Lilley, John-Paul Townsend & Coco Varda. They now live in South London.
They have been championed by BBC Radio 1 & Radio 6 DJ's including Annie Mac, Phil Taggart, Steve Lamacq, and Radcliffe & Maconie. Support from BBC’s Huw Stephens & Jack Saunders saw the band being invited to play sessions at Abbey Road & Maida Vale Studios.
The band have toured with numerous acts around the U.K, and in January 2020 they supported Mark Ronson, Kurt Vile & Anderson .Paak at 4xFar Festival in Coachella Valley, California.
