Dodging Cupid is a classic rock & roll band from the Delaware Valley, playing the songs that have endured over time. Our repertoire extends from tunes from the 60’s all the way through the 90’s, and includes genres such as Motown, country rock, and blues as well.
We have been together 10 solid years, and if you could imagine are all still very good friends. In our former life we were known as The Soul Avengers, again, another testament to our incisive abilities to name ourselves, but not totally without some meaning- we did, and still do play Soul, among other things. The band has morphed a few times in our ten year history, starting as a collection of weekend warriors placed together as part of a music store advertisement to sell equipment , to who we are today. Our repertoire of players has for the most part remained consistent, adding and subtracting one or two along the way. Our gig experiences have been most interesting We have played for: Weddings, civic functions, parties, dinning esatblishments, Cradle worshiping moose lodges, Senatorial re-elections, British Marine Bands, Over 60 wedding, Woodstock revivals, and a lot of stuff in-between. The common thread in all of this is Fun! Regardless of the gigs, we have lots of it, and the audience does as well.
We Love to play and perform in front of an audience. Our Passion is music, both individually and collectively as a group. I have to say with a slightly jaded eye, that our audiences connect with us because we are not only good musicans, but engaging, interactive , and charming as hell.We give a performance not a recital.
We have 4 lead male singers, and 1 female singer,which make for for varied and excellent harmonies. Instrumentally we have guiatrs, bass, drums, keyboards, harmonica, and on occasion a flute.
