Group Bios:

Shannon Roberts - Lead Vocals:
Shannon is truly the shining star in Cover Story. With her powerhouse vocals and professional stage presence, she has led some of the region's top bands such as the Portland Blues Broads, Bambini and the Curves, Haywire, and The Stage Door Johnnies. She has performed at the Vancouver Jazz Festival, Portland Trail Blazers games, the Crystal Ballroom, Rose Garden and many more. Able to perform a wide range of styles and genres, Shannon never fails to wow audiences.

Susan Lucht - Drums/Vocals:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is where Susan began her musical career. Beginning with guitar at the age of 8, she was drawn to drums and percussion instruments by 11. She has worked as an orchestral percussionist as well as a drummer in rock and blues bands. Since relocating to Oregon, she has played in several popular northwest cover and blues bands. Adding background vocals, a solid beat and high energy to the mix, Susan is more rock star than a second grade teacher. (Her day job...)

Brent Boisvert - Bassist/Vocals:
Originally from Las Vegas, NV, Brent started performing music at age 5 and by the time he got through Jr high school he was proficient in just about every instrument in the band room. He has played venues from Hawaii to Carnegie Hall. He settled in the Pacific Northwest with his wife in 1992 and since then he performed with a variety of local musical groups, including the "One More Time Around Again Marching Band" and several Gypsy jazz bands in the Portland area, but his favorite gig is holding down the low end for Cover Story!

Coverstory turned our gathering from a party into a Fandango! From the youngest to the eldest all were on their feet as the music selections appealed to all ages. Would reccomend Coverstory to anyone planning a special event. Thanks!

Cover Story is an AWESOME down to earth band! We had such a laid back wedding reception and people are still commenting a week after about how the band made the party! The music they played was such a great variety for all the wide range of age groups we had there. They played a special Cash song for my dad. They were so accomodating and really planned the music for us so I could focus on other things. My family and friends kept saying how it was obvious the band LOVED music and were into the party! Our family is already discussing having a family reunion next year and having Cover Story back because they were awesome and they were affordable! Thank you!!!

If you want a band that will bring up the energy level at your event, look no further than Cover Story. Not only were they extremely accommodating and professional, they got many people who I have never seen dance up onto the dance floor. Cover Story even learned two relatively uncommon songs as special requests, and the songs were played impeccably! Best of all, their rate was extremely affordable. All in all, Cover Story was amazing. Affordable rate, extremely talented musicians, and very professional and accommodating. If I know of any event that would be great with a live band, I will always call up Cover Story, and you should too.
