dupage is back and ready to give us a rockin’ good time! A tight-knit six-piece group of experienced musicians united with a common love of music. From classic rock to the timeless, soulful sounds of Motown to today’s most popular adult contemporary and alternative hits, dupage plays music that all ages will enjoy. They’ll throw in a dance or hoola-hoop contest along the way for those wanting to interact with the music. In any event, be prepared to have fun with dupage!
