Thank you to Vector Media for designing the cover art for our new CD, GETAWAY. Release date set for JUNE 2016!!
Late Spring means that the fun filled outdoor shows are just around the corner. In fact, we have our first outdoor show of the season this coming Saturday at the Kohler Festival of Beer. Copper Box is fortunate to have another busy schedule this year, and we have all of you to thank for it. Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming gigs!
Copper Box was asked to perform on the Wisconsin Public Radio show, Michael Feldman's "Whad' ya Know?", on May 7th. Tickets are sold out, so be sure to tune in!
One more thing, we have been working diligently and putting the final touches on our new recording, "Getaway". Our buddy & studio engineer, Tony Anders, and Danny have been putting in a lot of time at Studio H in Appleton, WI. It should hit the streets in early June!
We wanted to pass this sad news along to all of our friends of Copper Box.
David Jerabek (Danny's brother) and his wife Dana's youngest daughter passed away. Dave was a founding member and the first bassist. We love you guys!

New Copper Box merch headed this way! We are excited to have some new fitted hats this year!
Sizes available: S/M, M/L, and L/XL
Color: Navy Blue
Design on front only, no design on back, these hats are "fitted" so there is no hole in the back. (HINT: I think they run a little large, so if you are debating about size, go with the smaller one.)
If you'd like to purchase these awesome hats! Please send us a check payable to Copper Box, PO Box 3966 Oshkosh, WI 54903 for $25 (includes tax, shipping and handling) or buy one at a live shows (SEE TOUR DATES).
Happy New Year to all of our music loving friends and families. 2015 was another busy year with great gigs and happy memories. Aaron Zepplin, a local guitarist, was a frequent guest at Copper Box shows after July 4th and added a little extra 'musical goodness'. Also, later in July Danny was given some great news, as he was offered a Hohner Accordions Artist Endorsement deal. We're very thankful of the friendship and partnership with Hohner. One 'not-so happy' memory in 2015 was when the band made a difficult decision and parted ways with the talented drummer, Jason VanRyzin. We wish Jason the best in his future musical conquests and teaching career. However in early October, Dan Cable (a childhood friend of bassist, Drew Hicks), jumped into the CBox van with his drums and has been doing a great job ever since! Dan, aka DC, is married with 3 children, and resides in Winneconne, WI.
The 2016 calendar is already starting to fill up, as you can see on the calendar, and we will be releasing a full band recording before the Summer season. Thank you to you all for your support and friendship.
