In the grand tradition of faux family bands everywhere, the Kopecky Family Band has a wonderfully full lived-in sound. Grounded in the beautifully paired vocals of Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon the group brings their sense of familial intimacy to a fairly straightforward (though never dull) indie aesthetic.

As a septet, the Kopecky Family Band is able to hide musical treats in nooks and crannies layered throughout their songs. Even when denying a potential lover’s embraces, the Kopecky Family Band generates a certain warmth perhaps from the tinges of hard-edged whimsy floating through their arrangements and lyrics. Strains of southern folk earthiness also bleed into the dynamic flow of the band’s sound. The Kopecky Family Band is currently touring promoting their latest album, The Disaster, and a specially released collection of B-sides, Of Epic Proportions.
