The Kopecky Family Band - Vintage Cafe

So How Are The Kopecky Family Band Related?


Although Kelsey Kopecky is part of the focus of the group, The Kopecky Family Band members are not related. Kelsey is the only Kopecky. She and follow songwriter Gabe Simon met in 2007 at a Nashville songwriter session although neither of them took songwriting that seriously at the time. The band developed a strong following but never got around to releasing an album until 2012 when Kids Raising Kids came out. For our Vintage Cafe this week we revisit a high energy session with the band live in the studio.
