In the midst of an active Summer Tour with stops in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania, Florida’s dexterous musical juggernauts known as COPE are playing at JJ’s Bohemia in Chattanooga on Monday, Aug. 12, at 9 p.m.
The four-piece rock outfit played a killer set at Wanee Music Festival in April and they headlined Orange Blossom Jamboree this year. On this tour, they’ll be making appearances at Mantrabash and The Werk Out. COPE offers an array of audial influences that recall the pleasures of yesterday while hinting at the promises of tomorrow. Roots-rock passages blend seamlessly with bluegrass, funk, reggae and electronic breakdowns accented by soaring vocal harmonies that provide a smooth swagger, seducing audiences to the dance floor. The creative quartet offers a brilliant blend of melody and harmony balanced with tightly-arranged and well-composed numbers that demonstrate an appreciation for song craft…all while throwing the boogie down.
JJ’s Bohemia is at 231 Martin Luther King, Chattanooga, Tn. 38104. Tickets are $5 for people 21 and older.
