We are an experienced, professional cover band dedicated to pure entertainment. From the timeless, soulful sounds of Motown to today's most popular adult contemporary and alternative hits, Dupage plays songs that draw audiences of all ages at festivals, clubs and private parties.

Frequently Asked Questions:
*Can the band perform during cocktail and dinner hours?
Yes. You may choose to hire one or more of our musicians to perform for your cocktail and/or dinner hours. Our pianist can provide a variety of music ranging from classical to new age music.
*Will you make announcements and introduce the wedding party?
We offer a "Master of Ceremonies" service at no extra charge. For wedding receptions, three months prior to the event, we will send out a work sheet for you to fill out. For bridal parties, we work with you to ensure proper name pronunciation.
*Does the band play music through the PA during its breaks?
Yes, just specify the genre you would like to hear and Dupage will put together a series of great tunes to keep the party "hopping" during breaks....at no additional charge!
*Can I use your microphone for announcements and toasts?
Yes. Our wireless microphones are always available to use for you and your guests.
*Will the band learn a special song for me?
Absolutely! If you don't see your special song on our song list, let us know and dupage will learn it for you.
*When do you arrive to set up your equipment?
In keeping with our commitment to your guest's enjoyment, musicians set up their equipment and perform sound checks before your guests even arrive. For example, if your event starts at 6 pm, the band's arrival time for setup would be around 3:30 pm. We are always discreet and professional.
*Do you mind if a guest sits in to perform with the band?
Not at all! If you would like to have someone sing a song or perform with the band, we are happy to do this as long as advance notice is given. However, due to the high level of preparation that is done for each event, we might not be able to accommodate last minute requests.
*Will the band perform at a volume that is comfortable for me and for my guests?
dupage always performs at a comfortable volume. Our high quality PA is crisp and clear. Our performance will complement your party, not compete with it. We provide an atmosphere conducive to conversation and dancing. If, during the event, you ever think we are either too loud or too soft, please let us know and we will be happy to adjust our volume.
*How does dupage select songs to play at my event?
dupage will work with you to understand the type of event, and possible preferences of the attendees. We will give you the opportunity to review our planned sets ahead of your event and make changes if desired.
