Cope and The Mantras!Â $7 in advance $10 day of showÂ .::Cope::.Â www.TheRealCOPE.comListen to COPE (either âliveâ or recorded), and you will hear an audial smorgasbord of influences and styles. Rock passages blend seamlessly with reggae, roots rock, and soaring vocal harmonies to provide a smooth swagger that makes the ladies dance, and the lads bob their heads. Dennis Stadelman offers his chops on vocals, guitar, and banjo, while his brother Kenny shares vocal responsibilities and lays down his delicious grooves on bass guitar. Dave Gerulat (drums) and Juan Montero (keys / saxophone) add their own flourishes and musical pedigrees to the mixture. The result is a pleasing combination that hearkens back to the days of yore, while also hinting at the promise of the future. COPE offers an excellent blend of melody and harmony, aggressive runs on guitar, powerhouse drumming, and scintillating horn and keys. Unlike other bands in the genre, who linger in incessant, loping jams, COPE originals are tightly-arranged, well-composed numbers that show an appreciation for song craft, both from a lyrical and musical perspective.Â .::The Mantras::.Â Building a reputation as go-for-broke live act, The Mantras have been playing to consistently larger and larger crowds all over the East coast and Midwest. The Mantras are steadily building a following both regionally and nationally with music that is a high-energy collaborative of funk-rock, middle-eastern, electronica, and metal. Their rising profile as a top notch musical powerhouse has resulted in an incredible year so far, seeing The Mantras and their members in numerous festival performances and sharing stages in double-bills and direct support for the likes of Umphrey's McGee, Eoto, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Papadosio, Zoogma, The Werks, and many more.
Tracking of the Mantras next studio release is currently taking place at Jake Cinninger's (Umphrey's McGee) personal studio, Boondock Studios.
