ABOUT THE BAND

Although Brian founded several bands, the history of one illustrates Brian’s vision. The renowned Nexus Rock Band grew out of Brian Choper’s passion for great rock and roll and his desire to create a music project that would stand out from other bands. The result, after two years and lots of hard work, was a more polished band that could play music beyond what you typically hear from a party band. Its members are better players who can play out and jam with the music, and the overall show is more engaging with the audience on a musical level.

The band was conceived back in 2005, and today performs private parties and corporate events. As this band was first conceived, many on the outside believed that such a group could not be maintained, as it was difficult to find the right musicians to fit the high standards sought. It took Brian and his team two years just to find the right players. The result is quite a contrast from most rock and roll bands of today.

In 2007, the group started working together without a specific agenda as they tried to identify their own sound. They quickly realized that every time they got together to rehearse, they were creating a new rock concept, writing a new tune, or figuring out how to make each song more interesting, more unique, or more rockin’. The players had special talents in writing, lyrics and arranging. As performance inquiries came in, they expanded their repertoire to include classic rock, modern pop, funk and exciting new & original compositions.

Today the band is known for their unusual flexibility in their music. Their amazing ability to adapt to the individual preferences of the client while knowing exactly what to play to keep the party in high motion has become quickly noticed. Their popularity has allowed them to play for parties while bringing forth invites to play for major galas, celebrity parties and heads of state, including such notables as the President Of The United States and Nancy Pelosi.

Nexus, the perfect band for any wedding, gala, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, aniversary, corporate affair, college party or party in general!

"I just wanted to thank you and the entire band for being so, so wonderful! We truly had the perfect wedding day and I think you played a large part in that. The music was just like we had talked about, so thank you for being so attentive to my wishes. And the female singer (Laurie) had such an amazing voice! Everyone was raving about how great you were the next morning. I hope that you all had fun as well. I'd be happy to write you a recommendation if ever you might need one, and will definitely be passing your name along to other brides to be. Thank you again for such a great evening, I wish we had even more time that night to celebrate -- it was awesome!!"
