The group began playing out under the name Audio Entanglement Theory, until the band was dissolved in the spring of 2016.
During the early summer of 2016, Rock Soup was formed by Ron Jennings, Mike Lavrich, Danielle Sanders, and Michael Bacon on drums. Soon after the formation of Rock Soup, vocalist Danielle sanders departed the group. After an extensive search for a new vocalist, lead vocalist and guitarist Brian Johnson joined the group in the fall of 2016.

With each member having an independent taste in music, the band’s set list quickly grew to include rock, pop, and R&B hits from the 70’s through today. With a diverse and high energy set list, Rock Soup has quickly established itself as one of the premier rock cover bands in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C area.
