The Cooper Brothers will celebrate their 40th Anniversary with a very special performance at Centrepointe Theatre on Friday, March 21 at 8:00 pm. The band will be joined by some surprise special guests and will go deep into their catalogue, performing their many hits, alongside lesser known gems from the past and songs from their brand new album “Southbound.”

In 1974, a young Ottawa band named THE COOPER BROTHERS, lead by brothers Dick and Brian Cooper and Terry King, hit the airwaves with a song called "Finally with You" produced by their good friend, and fellow Ottawan, Les Emmerson.  The music world promptly took note of their catchy songs, their intricate vocal harmonies and their unique country rock sound.

By 1978 they had scored an international record deal with legendary Georgia-based Capricorn Records and a string of hits followed including “The Dream Never Dies”, “Rock 'n Roll Cowboys”, “Know Her  When I See Her” and “Show Some Emotion” hitting the charts both here in Canada and in the U.S.  At the height of their career, the band toured extensively throughout North America, opening for such diverse artists as  The Doobie Brothers,  James Taylor,  Joe Cocker, Charlie Daniels, Atlanta Rhythm Section, McGuinn, Clark and Hillman and AC/DC.

The band’s latest album “Southbound” was recorded at The Tragically Hip’s studio in Bath, ON and is the perfect blend of their beautiful signature harmonies of the past and a contemporary sound. The album features eleven new, original songs written by Dick Cooper, including “The Last Time I Saw Georgia”, “Love’s Been A Stranger”, “Maybe This Is The Night” and is produced by Blue Rodeo guitarist, Colin Cripps (Jim Cuddy/Kathleen Edwards).
