The band started in 2003 in Richmond, Virginia by Chipp Corderman, Derrick Englert and Allen Sleeman.
The guys met at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond where all three majored in music. CoPilots members grew up all over the state of Virginia; Chipp hails from Fredericksburg and Derrick from Virginia Beach, while Allen remains a true Richmond native. Their different hometowns have created opportunities to play all over the state and have helped them develop a statewide fan base. CoPilot frequents venues from West Virginia to Norfolk and down to North Carolina.
No matter where they travel, their loyal fans follow. They look forward to opportunities to play additional cities along the Atlantic Coast 2.
