Chicago’s COVER STORY has an amazing repertoire that’s constantly evolving so that you’re not always going to hear the same sets of songs year after year bringing you back to the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s with a few surprises along the way

Voted one of the top 3 vocalists in the area by Nitelife.org readers, you’ll enjoy Lucy Mihalik’s vocal versitility, on everything from Rock & Roll to Motown, and Country to Disco - not to mention the great ballads and standards. Possessing one of the finest voices in Chicagoland, Lucy takes the stage with a confident and commanding presence. No doubt - you’re in for a show you won’t forget!

Voted one of the top keyboard players in the area by Nitelife.org readers, Jerry G also handles many of the vocal harmonies, using his strong voice with an amazing range. Jerry has played in many Chicagoland bands - including Proud Flesh, Sahara, and Copperhead. . Sahara and Copperhead had the distinction of being among Chicago’s elite wedding/party bands.

Although writing, recording and playing original music is Doug Sylvester’s first love, he enjoys playing drums in the classic hits of yesterday with a good band, who are also great friends. Some of Doug’s former bands include Bad Mac, Sahara, Copperhead, Pale Hero and Modern Eccentrics. Doug has played in small dives, large dives, smoky rock clubs, reception halls, outdoor festivals, dark, vintage theaters, and even huge arenas. His bands have headlined and also opened for bands like Off Broadway, Styx, Siegal-Schwall, Blue Oyster Cult and - yes, Flock of Seagulls, to name a few.

Tom DeMichael has been a musician for four decades, playing a variety of instruments for cover, tribute, wedding, and original bands, including Small Fortune, Working Stiffs, Wheels, and Sir Paul - The Ultimate McCartney Tribute. His musical skills create memories that last a lunchtime. His guitar playing with Cover Story keeps the dancers on the floor.
