The Copperline Duo presents, “James Taylor & Friends, ” songs by James Taylor and many of the artists with whom he collaborated. All are encouraged to sing along!


David Lamm is the lead singer and guitarist of the popular Long Island-based James Taylor cover band, Copperline, as well as a folk/rock group called Gotcha Covered. This afternoon, along with his partner, Danielle Gatto, they will present the songs of James Taylor and those with whom he has collaborated over his career, such as Carole King, Elton John, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, Crosby, Still & Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Webb, and more. You’ll also hear stories and tidbits about the songs themselves and the inspiration that brought them to life.

David Lamm has been a long-time educator and school principal, but managed to find time to express his artistic passion. His musical history spans the globe. Originally based in Los Angeles he performed primarily Hebrew liturgical music and Israeli & American Rock & Roll with his band Qabala for teen events and conventions in the U.S, Israel, and England. While living in Los Angeles, he orchestrated and played for “The Utopian Chronicles”, directed by Arthur Hiller, and starring Carolyn Jones and Tova Feldshuh. He also accompanied a stage show for NCSY, an international youth organization, starring Richard Dreyfuss.

Danielle Gatto, David’s partner in both bands, was a recent contestant on The Voice and featured soloist of the National Anthem at the Long Island Ducks Stadium. Danielle performed with a number of local bands before teaming up with David Lamm in Copperline and Gotcha Covered.
