As 2013 unfolds, The Coupe De' Villes are celebrating their 30th year of existence by performing all over the Western New York Region. The Coupe De' Villes, or as known more commonly by their fans as The Coupes, have showed no signs of slowing down. The truth is that The Coupe De' Villes continue to be one of the busiest bands based out of Rochester, NY.
Though The Coupe De' Villes have changed with the times, the commitment to deliver the best entertainment possible remains. The Coupes begin their 3rd decade of making music with original members guitarist Tommy Bianchi, vocalist Lex Byers, and drummer George DeMott leading the way. The Coupes' newest members are bassist Jeff Morrison who has been keeping the pocket tight for the last decade, and keyboardist Lou Spezio has added another dimension to The Coupes' sound with his inventive style.
After 30 years some bands would consider winding down, on the contrary The Coupe De' Villes have kicked it up a notch by adding horns to the mix. The Wells Curtis Horn Section featuring trumpet player Donny Allen, and saxophonist Paul "Junior" Spezio is named after the popular Rochester based band Wells Curtis that several current Coupes' players once belonged to. With the horns blowing up the sound, The Coupes have emerged a 7 piece powerhouse that has the versatility to perform multiple styles of music, in almost any venue imaginable.
The Coupe De' Villes look forward to our next decade of entertaining the people of Western New York with our unique blend of Blues, Funk, and Classic Rock music. Don't let our age fool you, The Coupe De' Villes are only getting better with age.
