Copper Box celebrates 17 years in the music biz!

January 29, 2019

Another year has come and gone, and we find ourselves celebrating another year of being in the crazy world of the music business. We wouldn't be doing it if we didn't love it. (& we just might be a little crazy ourselves!)  2019 has already been a lot of fun for the band, as we've had some really fun-inspirational musical moments, and the crowd interaction and attendances have been off the charts.  I hope the rest of this year can keep up with these high standards that have been set.  Michelle is very busy booking shows for this year, and the band will not be sitting home much, again, this summer and fall, for sure.  As always, thank you for supporting Copper Box.

Copper Box turns 16 years old!

January 17, 2018

The band's first official gig was in a big heated garage for a private party.  As the band painfully played their new songs and new arrangements of covers, the people at the party quickly fizzled out and politely left early, and the band was asked to quit early. Thankfully, they still paid the band anyways. Michelle and Danny were a little devastated, wiped their tears, packed up everything, and went home and worked/tweaked their songs and playlist that same night. 

After a little time had passed, Copper Box got a little better and Michelle started calling up music venues around the Fox Valley and Green Bay, WI.   A lot of the venues seemed to be a little interested in having the band play, until they asked about the instrumentation....  'we have a bass, guitar, drums, and I play saxophone' said Michelle, but as the excitement of possibly booking a gig, she mentioned 'and my husband plays the squeezebox'..... many venues passed on the band.   And then one day, it finally happened!!   Hero's Bar in Green Bay actually liked the band's new sound, and wanted us to perform there.  The night was fantastic and everyone had a great time.  The band was pumped up as they played all of their songs from Copper Box's 1st recording (Roots), and good things were on the horizon.

Slowly music fans heard about this band with a great rhythm section that features 'a decent looking gal' on sax and a 'sweaty' accordionist, playing originals and groovy cover tunes.  Festivals, picnics, clubs, bars, and private events started to call & book us. 

16 years later, we're still here and still thinking of ways we can improve and promote the band and our sound/songs.  We (Danny & Michelle) have been blessed to be surrounded by good musicians (who happen to be good human beings, too) this whole time.  Without them, Copper Box would not be rockin'.  Life is good and music makes it so much better.  Thank you for supporting Copper Box, and we'll see you at a show.
