Toward the end of touring with the High Keys, frontman Marty Druckman originally put together Capney for NY producer Jim Lenner. Capney started by playing in Florida and Atlanta, GA. and eventually co-headlined Hot Lanta (later renamed Headrest), a big 3000 seat club in Atlanta. They shared the two stages with Lynyrd Skynyrd and alternated sets during that time. Lynyrd Skynyrd became very good friends with the band from those shows.
While in Florida, Druckman met Benjy King for the first time and invited him to play in Capney for a record project with Jimmy Lenner. Later they were joined by Donnie Kisselbach and Dave Brenewitz. They then rented a house in the Poconos, moved in and began rehearsing for the project while gigging around the east coast.
After a long run, the band split up. Druckman went into business with Ric Carhart (bass player for the High Keys) and Cris Fichera opening a commercial recording studio in E Stroudsburg PA. Druckman also started a Jingle company and went on to write and produce around 100 jingles, some still on air today. Donnie and Marty remained close going back and forth from NYC to LA writing and recording. Benjy moved to NYC and started playing in a band called Scandal with Patty Symth.
