Kopecky is an instrumental progressive rock trio consisting of three brothers: Joe (guitars), Paul (drums) and William (basses). Their music is known around the world for its virtuoso musicianship and dark-tinged experimentation. Influenced primarily by prog rock giants like Yes, Rush, and Dream Theater, the brothers Kopecky are also inspired by Indian and Middle-Eastern music, jazz fusion, and hardcore metal. .... Kopeckys hard-won career in progressive rock began in 1999 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut ..Kopecky.. (Mellow Records, Italy). Following were a string of CDs that improved successively and continued to earn them praise internationally: 2000s ..Serpentine Kaleidoscope.. (Cyclops Records, England), 2001s ..Orion.. (M.A.C.E. Music, USA) which was recorded live in Baltimore, and their 2003 masterwork ..Sunset Gun.. (Musea Records, France). Harder-edged and more complex than their previous releases, Kopeckys fifth CD ..Blood.. (Unicorn Digital Records, Canada) is undoubtedly their boldest musical statement to date. .... In addition to earning praise for their recordings, Kopecky has also gained recognition for their top-notch live performances. They have performed at several major progressive rock festivals: BajaProg, Progman Cometh, and ProgDay, and Joe and William have played NEARFest as members of Sweden's Par Lindh Project. Kopecky has also played as support act for such progressive luminaries as Porcupine Tree, Planet X, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Spocks Beard, Flower Kings, Thinking Plague, Tunnels, Gary Hoey, CAB, and Uriah Heep, and they have performed repeatedly on the Rock Stage at Summerfest, the largest music-oriented festival in the world.
