Coming Up Next: Copper Box

Algoma Concert Series in Heritage Park

Trust me: You haven’t heard an accordion quite like this. 

At the risk of dating myself, I’m going to say that anyone near my age who hears mention of an accordion may drum up an image of the television character Steve Urkel – the nerdy, socially awkward neighbor boy on the 1990s sitcom Family Matters. Or, perhaps it conjures up images of grandparents polkaing across the dance floor at a family wedding.

Scratch both from your mind, and listen to the fresh sounds of Copper Box. Danny and Michelle Jerabek – the multi-instrumentalist, husband-and-wife duo behind Copper Box – reinvent the sounds of the accordion and a host of other musical instruments as they bend musical genres and fuse sounds to create their anything-but-ordinary, toe-tappin’, small-town party vibe. So it’s no wonder why you’ll see the Oshkosh-based group – rounded out by bassist Dave Chyla and drummer Dan Cable – booked for community concerts throughout the summer. (If you caught Copper Box’s performance in Sister Bay recently, well, then you know.)

Delivering an energizing blend of Americana, roots, rock, polka, country, jazz and blues, with unmistakable undertones of Louisiana-born zydeco, Copper Box will be playing in Algoma next as part of the Algoma Concerts in the Park series. So grab your lawn blanket and chairs, and head to Heritage Park, off the city marina, for an evening of familiar songs with a fun polka-rock-blues twist.
