THELMA SADOFF CENTER FOR THE ARTS

11 Thursdays of Summer @THELMA

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) announces their 2nd annual 11 Thursdays of Summer kicks off June 15 with the WAMI winning band Copper Box.

Fronted by Danny and Michelle Jerabek, Copper Box is a genre-bending celebration of fusion roots rock that channels the rowdy feel of a small-town party with their refreshing, gutsy, Americana sound of artists like the legendary Esteban Jordan (the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion), Los Lobos, and CCR.

Michelle Jerabek won the 2017 WAMI Reeds/Brass of the Year.
