Cherub is a funky, 80’s pop-inspired duo made up of the likes of Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber. The two have had quite a run in the last year with the release of their first album, MoM & DaD, in 2012. Their hit single off the album, Doses and Mimosas, encapsulates exactly who this band is and why they’re unique in what they do: they utilize drum machines and synths and pair it with their sometimes aggressive yet still pop lyrics. They do a fine job of making funky dance music that transcends generations, and their use of vocoders don’t hurt either.

Their new album, 100 Bottles, was just released this year. They have performed at multiple festivals including Lollapalooza in Chicago and Wakarusa in Arkansas, as well as a multitude of venerable venues that includes Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.
