Looking for that full-band sound in a smaller package? Capital Duo is a unique live band experience with a big sound and smaller footprint. Drummer Donnie Williams and singer/guitarist Chris Bruno from the veteran band Lloyd Dobler Effect combine their talents to bring this fresh approach to a live performance.

Simply put, Chris and Donnie perform their amazing full-band show as a Duo, combined with the full support of backing tracks. Close your eyes and you will think there are 7 or more people playing on stage. The music is fun, upbeat, and full without taking up a huge stage or performance area.

Chris and Donnie have been performing live together for over 17 years and have built up a catalogue of over a 1,000 songs. They also have the ability to take many requests not on their track play list. As solo, Duo, or with Lloyd Dobler Effect, they have performed over 1,000 private events in the DC area in the past 2 decades including weddings, galas, corporate and private events.

Even as a duo, they have the ability to provide a full range of wedding & eventĀ  services including ceremony and cocktail music, sound, lights, MC duties and break DJ music.

Capital Duo Acoustic
is the same songs and same musicians in a broken down acoustic set up that will fit into any venue and at any volume level.

Capital Trio adds Lloyd Dobler Effect percussionist Carlos Nalda to the mix for a beat driven performance. Songs come to life even more with the combined talents of Donnie and Carlos’ unique chemistry after many years performing together.

Whether you are looking for that full-band sound in a large ballroom or an incredibly entertaining broken down acoustic performance in a basement for 30 guests, the Capital Duo is perfect for your event.
