Irish Wolfhound will host Litchfield Park duo

A Sunday afternoon of live music is coming to Surprise.

The duo of Copper Sunrise plays 3-7 p.m. Sunday, June 24 at Irish Wolfhound, 16811 N. Litchfield Road, Suite No. 102. Copper Sunrise is comprised of Greg Drejza on guitar and Keith Weaver on drums, and they hail from Litchfield Park.

Copper Sunrise is a regular around the West Valley. The duo rotates playing at Old Pueblo Cafe (Litchfield Park), Dillon’s BBQ at Wildlife World Zoo (Glendale), Irish Wolfhound (Surprise), Casa del Mar Cafe (Goodyear) and Hurricane Grill & Wings (Surprise). They name Eric Clapton, Dave Mason, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Yes and The Beatles among their influences.

Mr. Drejza is originally from Upstate New York, and has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old — and still has that guitar. He learned the instrument from playing at Catholic Folk Masses each and every Sunday during his Catholic grammar school years, according to the band’s official website.

Mr. Weaver is originally from Newark, Delaware, and has been playing drums since he was given his mother’s blessing in sixth grade to go in search of other musical instruments to play in the school’s symphonic band. After playing violin for three years he felt he was destined for bigger things and, always craving attention, he thought drums would do the trick.
