Maybe you had a bad day, maybe you thought it was unredeemable. Maybe you have a cold and you don’t feel like moving around. Maybe you’re tired, and you think you’re just going to have a quick drink and head home. Maybe you fancy yourself someone who watches a concert quietly from the back, attentively listening. Maybe you’re a mother who’s only here because your daughter needed a ride. Maybe you’re a seventy-year-old man who walks with a cane.
In a few seconds, it’s not going to matter who you are.
When the Balkan-inspired, circusy sound of Bella’s Bartok hits your ears, you are no longer in control. You are out of your seat and you’re bouncing up and down, and soon your arms are flailing and you’re smiling and screaming. Your bad day, your cold, your fatigue have all vanished, and it’s not even the end of the first song.
Bella’s Bartok makes everyone dance, regardless. From living rooms to concert halls, alleyways to weddings, the band’s energy makes getting up and moving irresistible. Without fail, someone from the audience comes up after every single show and says the same thing: “I couldn’t help it.”
Bella’s Bartok brings the desperate wail of the blues, the melodic timbre of a choir and the block-rocking beats of your favorite Hungarian dance hall. Seven piece, multi-instrumentalist groove-making extra-ordinaires from Northampton, MA.
“These guys may not be from Ireland, but the whiskey, beer and soul are deep within” a very true saying for these Vermont based rockers.
The CopOuts are a Celtic, Folk, Punk-Rock band based out of Northern New England. With influences from the Pogues to the Dubliners to Dropkicks, these Celtic Irish rockers will WOW you with their high energy shows and variety of musical instruments ranging from the mandolin, fiddle, walking bass lines and crashing drums!
With years of musical experience combined, The CopOuts have always had a love for the Celtic/Irish music and having only been on this particular musical scene for 4 years, they are taking New England by storm!
Keep your ears to the track for their debut full length studio album coming out later in 2016
We’ll say it once and we’ll say it again…lets “Rock out with your CopOuts!”
