In my electric show I sing and play the guitar backed up by blues and R&B tunes I’ve recorded myself from, among others, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Albert King, Jimi Hendrix, Rufus Thomas, Elmore James, Tommy Castro, Jonny Lang, Solomon Burke, Steve Miller, Delbert McClinton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bo Diddley, Al Green, and Bobby “Blue” Bland.
In my acoustic show I just sing and play my acoustic guitar, performing original songs and classic rock from, among others, the Beatles, the Everly Brothers, Tom Petty, Eddie Cochran, the Eagles, the Coasters, CCR, Van Morrison, Elvis Presley, the Hollies, Clyde McPhatter, Tommy Roe, Roy Orbison, Del Shannon, Jay & the Americans, Cat Stevens, Eddie Floyd, and Marvin Gaye.
In a survey of 700 elementary school educators about the role of the arts in their classroom teaching, 96% said the arts help make learning fun and relevant for their students, and 92% said they would like to be using more music in their teaching. My presentation is arts education (music), but it’s also history, social studies, culture, and diversity.
Paul is such a great energy to have on stage in parallel with being a genuinely nice and great person to work with. He puts on a fun lively show entertaining people of all ages. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking for an act to book for some quality music! Rock on!Blake Johnson
Paul Kopco rocked the house! Can’t wait to have him back!Justin Serr
We hired Paul to perform for a corporate dinner function, for a group of about 50. Paul was super accommodating and very easy to work with. We enjoyed his music very much and would not hesitate to hire, or recommend, Paul Kopco.Richard Flood
Our organization has hired Paul Kopco to perform for two of our social events. We could not have made a better choice. Paul can do it all – blues, rock, country and his original tunes. We have wanted a musician who would provide a “strolling musician” presence with excellent acoustic guitar and voice. We will hire him again soon. As one of our members said, “Paul Kopco was absolutely the perfect musician for this event. We could visit and listen at the same time.” He understands his audience and makes the evening a big success.Lee Thielen
