This past Thursday was Cinco de Mayo, and you do not have to give Erie residents a good excuse to go out and have fun. Whether it was Mexico’s Independence Day or not, people were out in full effect. Those who stopped by at Sherlock’s got a little more than they bargained for.
On stage was Cover Gurl, a band you may have recently seen pop up in the scene or played in a few venues. The four-piece band has a recognizable face, as Anthony Cox from the band Money Shot was anchoring the bass-lines. But when you hear a band, it’s not the face that sticks with you, it’s the sound.
As their name suggests, Cover Gurl plays cover songs, but with female lead singer. That female is Chelcie Gette. Never in a million years would I think I’d hear songs by Tina Turner, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, and Kelly Clarkson sung by a band in Erie and sound awesome. Now, those artists have a vocal range on another level then most of us, but Chelcie’s talent is right on par with them. She was hitting the mark on songs that most people don’t even try to sing.
Other artists that were covered Thursday was P!nk, Jewel, Des’ree, Katrina and the Waves, and even Mylie Cyrus with a combination of Corey Heart’s Sunglasses at Night. Cover Gurl adds their own flavor and style to the songs they cover, so it’s not like listen to the radio. So if you are looking to see a band that has a great singer, some songs to sing along to, and a band to jam out to the heavy riffs, then Cover Gurl should be on your list.
