Seasoned professionals, Crystal Image has thrilled audiences throughout California and Nevada since 1968. They are equally at home performing great music for dancing, opening for headliners or playing soft background 'listening' music for dinner shows. Please note the show schedule to the right of this web site. We do over 200 shows a year.

CRYSTAL IMAGE is John Covert and Michael Samaritano. The duo can be expanded with live drums and much more! Michael Samaritano is an ex movie stunt man. He brings excitement to the stage and to the audience with his wireless guitar and crazy antics! He also performs renditions of acoustic songs by artists like James Taylor and Neil Young that will make you believe you are listening to the artist himself.

A core member of the Crystal Image Trio is Dayna Wills, related to legendary country "hall of fame" artist, Bob Wills (Texas Playboys, San Antonio Rose). She has the voice of an angel when she performs country, blues and classic rock favorites!

Because the duo or trio has "keyboard built in" drums and bass run through an excellent sound system, they sound like a full band and are very professional and danceable. A wonderful alternative for smaller budgets and venues!

Bigger budget? Ask about live drums, female vocals, blues and country harmonica, sax, steel guitar and more..
