The Kopy Katz are a wild, high-octane live 3-piece band that play originals and cover songs by The Stray Cats plus classic 1950’s rockers (Eddie Cochran, Elvis etc) and they even apply their own unique rockabilly sound to songs by T.Rex, The Rolling Stones, Billy Idol & others for something a little different. They never fail to get any crowd rockin’.


The band is based in Welwyn Garden City, Herts and Essex coast and features David Lyall (lead vocals & guitar), Lee Symonds (drums & backing vocals) & Carl James-Cordean (double bass & backing vocals).


After a few years playing pubs, clubs, small festivals and private events, 2020 got off to a great start with The Kopy Katz supporting The Polecats, Restless and Darrel Higham & The Enforcers and playing legendary venues like The 100 Club, London. But due to COVID-19, things came to a halt.

In 2021 the band released their debut original single called THE KOPY KATZ SUCK. Check the official music video. Also available from your favourite download and streaming outlets.

The Kopy Katz returned to live shows from June 2021 and are looking forward to a great 2022. See gig diary >


The band have over 10,000 followers across their social media channels and over 100,000 YouTube views.
