Copper Box (Americana, roots rock) that will knock your socks off!!!
Wisconsin Blues Society describes Copper Box as "...one of the favorites of the Fox Valley Blues Festival 2004. This hot Zydeco Swamp/Blues Rock outfit with a great baritone and tenor sax gal and a hot accordion man. This group cooks and swings with some of the best Zydeco-influenced groups I've seen anywhere in the country."
From Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI to Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA to Cotati Accordion Festival in Cotati, CA to the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio, TX and Soulard Oktoberfest in St. Louis, MO, Copper Box keeps the crowd hopping and the tent rocking with their unique blend of “accordion-fueled, roots rock!”
Copper Box’s sound connects the upbeat sounds of the upper Midwest with southern soul and fills it with groove and grit! Copper Box is a power quartet that brings the best of what an accordion has to offer and is certainly no novelty act! Their music is inspired by a variety of artists, including Esteban Jordan, Doug Sahm, CCR, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, Clifton Chenier, Little Feat, and countless others.
Danny Jerabek (accordion, keys, vocals, cornet, sousaphone, etc.) and his wife, Michelle (Thull) Jerabek (bari saxophone, vocals, guitar, washboard, etc.) got their start performing in their family's polka bands. They met at a polka dance! After they were married, they started their own band with musician friends, Kevin Junemann (bass, ukelele) and Jason Van Ryzin (drums).
