Event Type

The Copper Children are a unique blend of styles and influences that span from the choral sounds of American gospel music to the psychedelic acid jam fueled sounds of the 60s. Live they take you into your heart space, conjuring the spirit of unity, freedom, silliness, and love, with harmonies and rhythms that remind us of our shared humanity. The Copper Children have shared the stage with notable artists such as Jerry Garcia Band, The Flobots, Devotchka, Mike Love, Everyone Orchestra, Elephant Revival, Dustbowl Revival, Handmade Moments, and many more. Over the years the band has performed for audiences at Summer Camp, Northwest String Summit, Arise Music Festival, and on national tours of the U.S. Like a roller coaster, their “Psychedelic Gospel” experience leaves audiences feeling transported to the rail-yards of freedom.

The Copper Children is driven by rhythm and good vibration. Each member came together with the intention of spreading love of the purest form as far as possible. Formed in July of 2015, the Copper Children released their first album as a group in June of 2016 called “What We Are”. It is centered around the bonding of the members and their sharing in the blessing that was the life of Caleb Jarosh, Elijah’s brother, whom the album is dedicated with love. It is the foundation of the band’s journey into their own sound.

Doors at 5pm. Music at 5:30pm. $10 tickets, 12 and under are FREE! Email for any questions about this show.
