Wow! Copper Box has had an awesome start to the Oktoberfest season the last two weeks. The band's 7th year at the Plymouth Oktoberfest and the 2nd @ Chippewa Falls Oktoberfest were both physically and emotionally amazing.
Tomorrow the band heads down to New Orleans for the first time to perform. Check the tour page for information on where and when. New Orleans is famous for being culturally rich in music, art, food, and dancing. CBox is expecting to take that all in and more..... :)
Our long standing Oktoberfest gigs in Appleton and Dheinsville(Germantown) Wisconsin will be on our minds when we get back home, and we plan on "Polka Rockin'" everyone there.
Ein Prosit, everybody!

An amazing crowd to end the Waterfest concert series 2011 with Mighty Short Bus, Copper Box and then The Doobie Brothers at the Leach Amphitheater in Oshkosh, WI. Copper Box promoted their 2010 release, LIVE FROM WATERFEST 2010 DVD and their newest CD release called, PEOPLE CHANGE.
It was great to meet everyone backstage. A lot of times headliners won't say too much to an opening band, but The Doobie Brothers were great to work with and their crew was fantastic, and their show and sound was amazing! The biggest crowd for the season...7000+.

We all love GOOD accordion music! There is good accordion music, and there is bad accordion music. Copper Box performs GOOD ( kick ass ) accordion music = so put on some sunscreen, put on your favorite comfortable pair of shoes, grab your favorite drink, and we'll see you at some Copper Box shows this month. " Yeah, baby... that's what I like"

Had a great time attending The 2011 WAMI Awards Show at Turner Hall in Milwaukee, WI on Sunday, April 17th. Copper Box was nominated for Americana Artist of the Year and Specialty Instrumentalist of the Year (Danny Jerabek). We won both awards in 2010, but didn't take home the award this year.
Had a great time meeting up with fellow musicians and listening to some great bands representing the WI Music Industry. Congrats to all winners and nominees!
