Free at Noon Flashback: Kopecky Family Band got the crowd riled up for tonight’s Union Transfer show
Nashville’s Kopecky Family Band played a solid set at today’s double-header Free At Noon concert with The Stray Birds. All six members of the Nashville band trickled on stage, got into position and launched into their trademark high-energy performance, quickly snatching the attention of the audience. Their energy was infectious as they played, with lead vocalist Kelsey Kopecky urging the crowd to sing along and multi-instrumentalist Markus Midkiff utilizing heavy tom drum hits and rim clicks, crafting a beat you couldn’t help but groove to.
The band’s hit “Heartbeat” from 2012’s Kids Raising Kids was a winner, and Kopecky told the crowd that the band would release its follow-up album in January before debuting a new song called “Real Life.” Lead vocalist and guitarist Gabe Simon finished the show off strong by whipping out a trombone during their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk,” jumping off the stage and leaning in to the crowd as he played – begging for an enthusiastic, whooping response.
