The Copacetics

August 4 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On the Jamaican music scene for almost 10 years now, The Copacetics are an 8 piece Reggae/Ska band that bring authentic Jamaican rhythms to set the best mood for your event! From their catchy original songs, to the traditional tunes dating back to the birth of the Jamaican groove, The Copacetics will have you dancing, drinking and enjoying the Summer life!

With fans across the country and overseas, they’ve shared the stage with such legends as Steel Pulse, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Yellowman, Third World, The Mighty Mystic, The Skatalites, The Slackers, Fishbone, The Toasters, The Green, Bim Skala Bim, King Hammond, The English Beat, The Pietasters, Roddy Radiation & Adam Birch from The Specials, The Scofflaws, King Django, Ryan from Catch 22, The Agents, Don Minott, and many more!

Their debut self titled album won “Album of the Month” on Reggae Steady Ska, and “Blood From A Stone” spent multiple weeks in the Top 5 on California’s “Ska Parade” radio countdown! With numerous award nominations to their credit, they won Motif Magazine Awards for Best Reggae/Ska Act of 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 before stepping it up to the multi-genre category and taking home Best Alternative Act of 2018!

After pressing into new sub-genres of Ska/Reggae with their 2nd record, “Ska Royale,” the Copacetics joined forces with bands across the globe to release the largest ska compilation ever, appearing on Volumes 1 and 2 of “What Do You Know About Ska Punk?” With new songs under their belt, they look forward to releasing new music before the end of 2018!
