We had everything soundchecked and ready to "polka-rock" at last weeks' Waterfest concert series in Oshkosh, WI last Thursday.  Fans were lined up at the gate, when the massive downpour came over us.  It only lasted about 5 minutes and then the rain stopped...we had a great time performing for all you diehards that stood in line and tried to stand up against Mother Nature.  We loved the banner that some groupies read..."Play that Funky Accordion!" 

Made some tracks up to Tomahawk, WI for Friday.  Artstreet in Green Bay, WI on Saturday was a fun show as well---with no rain.  The Guffs opened up the show and we met some new faces in the crowd. 

Then on to Clearwater Harbor in Waupaca, WI for Sunday.  Lots of exciting things happening...wish I would have had a camera for everyone that fell over in the water trying to dance the polka!  Then, a marriage proposal announcement by our good friends--congrats!

If anyone has pictures from past shows that they'd like to share with everyone, you can email them to us at


Summer road trips...this past week

August 13, 2007

As we are nearing the end of summer...we had a great time at the shows this week.  In the mid-week, we (Danny & I) managed to celebrate our 10th anniversary on Wed.  We played shows in Neenah, WI and had Tony Mata from Meridian Studios come out and record some video footage of the concert...we'll be sharing that with you once we get that edited.

Then we headed to the county fair....thanks to the "Cherry Bomb Girls!"  We also managed to get a blurp on video from our drummer, Jason Van Ryzin...regarding his experience at the fair....we'll be posting that soon on youtube.  You gotta see this!!

Next, we headed for the Truck 'N Show in Waupun, WI, then, a wedding in Brookfield, WI (Congrats Mike & Joanna!) party!  And lastly, on to Grand Marais, MI for a music fest---which turned out to be a great show---we had a chance to play for a new audience that seemed to really dig our music.  Thank God we made it there in one piece...we came very close to a few accidents on the road....oh, and thanks alot universe for the time change.  ha ha

We made it back home and are getting ready for the next week.  Picked up our kids (Shaylee & Maria) at 6:30am Monday morning from Grandma & Grandpa's house...we can't thank you enough for all that you do and for enabling us to travel & keep Copper Box rockin'.
