What are Lupe Garu?

The legendary Lupe Garu are said to be werewolves who can change from human to wolfen, and back again, at will. 

Lupe Garu, the band, are five hard-rockin’, whiskey-lovin’, journeymen musicians:

·   Ivan “The Butcher” - singer/songwriter/guitar player
·   Adam “Catfish” - singer/songwriter/bass player
·   Stan “The Guitar Man” - singer/songwriter/guitar player
·   Colin “The Machine” - drummer
  • Ahmil Jilani - keyboards/singer

These veteran musicians have been key players in a number of bands (see members bio’s) performing throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and NYC.

Lupe Garu are musical shape shifters who can move between low-down dirty blues, riveting blues rock, improvisational fusion/acid rock, to spellbinding mellow melodies.

Their take on classic rock, where they channel songs by Cream, the Dead, Hendrix, and others, have been known to drive listeners to a frenzy.

If you are into jam bands…

If you love classic rock…

If you were born to be wild…

Lupe Garu will get you out of your seat, shake you up, and get you howling at the moon!
