Taking You back to a Groovier Time in Music!
In 1997 the Cover Girls were created by Jennifer Lee and Debi Lewin. The goal to “Cover” some of the great music lost in time from the 60’s & 70’s .
Jennifer and Debi wanted to add a few musicians and so they reached out to the best, Rich Spina and Billy Sullivan.
Four phenomenal singers/musicians that only add guitar and keys with four-part harmony to create an incredible full sound.
It has been many years since the Cover Girls performed together and over 22 years since the group performed regularly around Cleveland.
The night will feature covers of the Beatles, Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield, Queen and more.
