You want your event to be perfect. So do we!
You've booked the right venue. You've hired the right party professionals. Now hire the right band: The Coppertones!

Don't settle for some tired-out bar band looking to make a quick buck. Hire the band that has been providing professional entertainment for wedding receptions, corporate events, private parties, and festivals since 2003: The Coppertones!


Joni Siekawitch: Lead Vocals, Keyboards
Vocalist beyond compare; talented multi-instrumentalist' does a mean Hammer Dance!

Jack Cook: Lead Vocals, Keyboards
Quite the proficient keyboardist; still working on the tie thing.

Jim Hensley: Guitar, Backing Vocals
Master of tone and taste on the Stratocaster; frequently mistaken for G. Gordon Liddy

"Fabulous" Lou Salvino: Drums
We hired him because he has those snappy dice-looking things holding his cymbals in place.

John "J.R." Ryan: Lead Vocals, Bass
Those girls dancing with J.R. were Photoshopped in -- or were they?



The Coppertones played at our wedding in April 2007. Not only are they a great band, they were so easy and fun to work with. They made sure our guests had a great time - in fact, friends are still commenting on what a fantastic job the band did. We 110% recommend The Coppertones!!!
Amanda and Tom Hashem, Charleston, SC

"I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful job by The Coppertones at our reception. You all made our event a success and we couldn't be more pleased. We have received numerous compliments from our guests and everyone we've talked with since the wedding has agreed that the music was fantastic. The atmosphere you created was exactly what we had envisioned - with little direction from me or the wedding director. In spite of our shortcomings in communicating with you, the group handled everything very well. Thanks again and we will certainly recommend you in the future - we have lots of friends and classmates in Charleston who are engaged or who will be soon, and we'll try our best to send them your way." Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Robinson, Asheville, NC

We are back from Jamaica and are slowly adjusting to being back to reality. The wedding was absolutely perfect. Everything went just as we wanted it to!!! We, along with everyone that we have talked to, were extremely impressed with the band!!! Scott and I really enjoyed having The Coppertones be a part of our special day. We could not have asked for better music and entertainment. I really appreciate you working with my mom on the TIGER surprise too. I know that was hard for you!! Thanks again for everything and feel free to list us a contacts and resources on your website. Thanks. Erin McCall Meece, Greenville, SC

Wanted to let you know the concert yesterday was great. You even played one of my all time favorites Brown Eyed Girl. I felt as if you were singing it just for me. I really enjoyed all of your music. Just wished the concert could have lasted longer. Your music brought back a lot of fantastic memories. Love your CD and look forward to purchasing your next one. Please let me know where you will be playing in the Charleston area. If it is a wedding I'll just have to be a wedding crasher!! Honest, you all are very talented. Keep up the great work. One of your Copperheads, Peg Mathis

(Coppertone original song) Real Man is going places. I've been playing it on my show for several weeks and have begun to get requests and calls about it. I have not calculated the numbers yet, but I would not be surprised to see it in my Top 20 for September. Keep up the good work. Jay Jenkins, Syndicated Radio Host

I played your single off the KHP CD and it had the floor full. Thanks so much. It makes a DJ's job easy with great songs like yours. Thanks. Jeff Foster, Spartanburg SC

Just wanted to say "Thank you" to the entire band for a wonderful job. Everyone really loved the music and the harbor cruise. Not sure what our plans are for next year, but if it includes music, I will definitely call you! Tammy Swartz, Square-One Meeting Planning

Hi there! You guys played at my wedding a little over a year ago and you were awesome. I'm over here in Iraq presently and will be for another 10 long, boring, sandy months, but I wanted to say how sorry I am that I'm going to miss you at the Charleston Beach Music and Shag Festival! I would give anything to be back just for that!! I've sent a few of my friends and family the dates, so I'm sure I'll hear how cool it was, but I wanted to let you guys know that you would have one more supporter there were it not for this beige country! Good luck and all the best! Captain Erin Hadlock, United States Army Air Corps

You guys (and gal) played at my daughter's wedding in Yemassee, SC last April and did a great job. She is now a Captain stationed in Iraq as an Army pilot and forwarded me the 'Tone News' page that she received the other day. She would sure love to show up for the Folly Beach performance Saturday and the big Shag Fest in August but I agreed to attend on her behalf. Please add me to your mailing list so I won't have to get news via Iraq and take a chance of missing a good time. Best Regards, Rick Davis

That is great that you are looking to The Coppertones for your wedding. I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about them. From the moment I found them, I knew I had to have them at my wedding. From the first contact with Larry, to the time I left my reception, I never had to worry about a thing. The entire band is very professional and they are wonderful to work with. My biggest concern was my guests not dancing, I should have never worried with The Coppertones there. They had everyone dancing from the moment my husband and I arrived and I don't think the dance floor was ever empty. They played everything that I asked and then some and I wish I could have stayed and danced even more. They were in contact with me at all times during the planning process and even when I had "crazy bride" questions, Larry was right there with answers. I hope this helps with your decision and if I can help you in anyway, please let me know. Laura Harling, Greenville, SC

Thank you so much for your wonderful work at our wedding! Your band was absolutely amazing and our guests loved the range of music and the fun spirit of the band. Thank you for working with me on the finer details of our first dance and the string trio. That help was greatly appreciated. I would recommend The Coppertones to anyone! Please use me as a reference if you would like. Take care and we hope to see you again when we are in town. Katie Balthazar, New York, New York

Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding reception at Allhambra Hall on April 17th (2011). Y'all were awesome! You truly delivered and helped create an amazing day/night that neither one of us will never forget.
Thank you again for everything and we look forward to hearing The 'Tones play again soon.
Ashley and Kevin, Mt. Pleasant, SC

Thank you for all you did to make our wedding reception an absolute blast! We could not have asked for a more talented and fun group to share with us on our wedding day! Thank you for being so sweet and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. Y'all are the best!
Lindsey and Ryan, Greenville, SC
