Copperpenny was a Canadian rock band from Kitchener, Ontario. They were formed in 1965 by Kenny Hollis and Rich Wamil, and were originally known as the Penny Farthings to reflect the British Invasion. Not long after their formation they adopted Copperpenny as their new moniker, after a B-side by Toronto band The Paupers. In 1968, the release of "Nice Girl" on Columbia Records garnered moderate success. They soon switched to RCA and enjoyed a minor hit with "Stop (Wait A Minute)
Consequently, in 1974, Sweet Plum Records, Kenny Hollis, Rich Wamil and the other members of Copperpenny all went their separate ways. Hollis returned to RCA in 1975 for a couple of singles, "Our World Is A Rock 'N' Roll Band" backed with "Saying Goodbye" (written by Wamil) and "Ruby Baby" (a 1963 hit for Dion written by Leiber and Stoller).

Copperpenny hailed from Kitchener, Ontario Canada. They started out in 1965 as the Penny Farthings, founded by Rich Wamil (keyboards, vocals) and Kenny Hollis (vocals), with Bill Mononen (guitar), Ron Hiller (bass) and Blake Barrett (drums). Mononen was replaced by Laverne McDonald, Hiller by Paul Reibling and Barrett by Bert Hamer. They signed with Columbia in 1968 for one single, and then with RCA in 1970 for an album and one single, "Stop (Wait A Minute)" pulled from the album
H ighschool friends Ken Hollis and Rich Wamil began jamming together in the garage in 1965, and formed their first group, Penny Farthings soon after. Adopting a name they felt reflected the British Invasion they were hearing on the airwaves, they soon became staples around the Kitchener, Ontario area. By that summer, they'd recorded some material, and three tracks were picked as singles over the next few months - "Baby Gives Me Everything" b/w "I'm Afraid Of The Cold," followed shortly after by "Nice Girl" b/w "Help Me" and "Beezel Bug" b/w "I Gotta G. None shook the world's foundations, nor did they live up to the expectations of some of Columbia's staff, although "Nice Girl" did make it to on the Canadian RPM chart.
