Bio

This is Copenger

Biography:

The group started to form when Chris Shank and Andrew Griffin met in their junior year of high school in their home town Silver Spring, Maryland. Chris met Conrad Osipowicz while working in a recording studio during the summer of 2005. The three of them went to college in the Boston area, where Chris recruited Andrew Guertin after meeting him at Northeastern University. Though only Chris and Andrew Guertin went to the same college, the four guys put in the effort to keep practicing and writing new material. The band later titled themselves Copenger, after the street that they practiced on.

In January 2006, the band traveled down to Bethesda, Maryland where they recored their first demo. They brought together a mix of rock, funk, alternative, and classic rock to form their own flavor. Their influences include bands such as Incubus, 311, Dave Matthews, Parliament, Coldplay, Tower Of Power, and Foo Fighters. Copenger strives to create original and multi-dimentional music that connects them to their fans.

Their fans became even more enthrolled with band when they saw Copenger's first live performance at Northeastern University's venue, afterHOURS. The band had the largest turnout of any band that perfomed that evening. In November of 2006, the band placed first in the Emergenza Festival's first round at the Middle East Upstairs and moved on to the second round at the Middle East Downstairs. Copenger's music continues to grow in popularity and was aired on the Boston radio station WECB 99.9. The band continues to write new songs and their name is becoming more well known everyday.
