THE CRYSTAL IMAGE BAND
John Covert (keyboards/vocals/bass)
Grand prize winner Nashville Music City Song Festival, Multi-Finalist awards American Song Festival. His original songs have been featured on "The Sopranos" (A&E TV Network), "General Hospital" (abc), "Driven" (vh1 with Grammy winner, Usher), "The Fabulous Life of Country Superstars" (vh1), "Nashville Now" (TNN), Hollywood movies and European collector's CD "California Love-In" also featuring the legendary rock band, Steppenwolf. Covert opened concerts for War, Tower of Power, Simon & Garfunkel, Chad & Jeremy, Gary US Bonds, The Chiffons, Dobie Gray, Sons of Champlin (Grammy award winner, Bill Champlin formerly of Chicago), The Coasters, Lady Bo (Bo Diddley's protege) and other national recording artists. He was also featured, vocally, on an album produced by James E. Myers (aka Jimmy DeKnight), composer of "Rock Around The Clock!"
Jerry Tamburino (drums/vocals)
Jerry was born to drum. His name, Tamburino, literally means "little drummer" in Italian. He has performed professionally since the mid-1970's. He has been equally comfortable performing with a Jazz Trio in Oklahoma, Country band in Pennsylvania, Blues band in Virginia and R&B and Rock bands in New Jersey and California. His powerful vocal range
brings excitement to classic rock songs like "Already Gone" (Eagles) and "Sweet Home Alabama" (Skynyrd) as well as oldies like "Rock Around The Clock" (Bill Haley & the Comets). Jerry's focus is on playing tight, steady rhythms that make people want to dance and giving the audience the best show possible.
Michael Samaritano (guitar/vocals)
Mike loves to perform. He doesn't just play guitar and sing, he puts every ounce of emotion he feels into each note. He's equally at home performing blues ala Eric Clapton or Robert Johnson, classic rock from The Stones, Skynyrd, Springsteen, Bob Seger or Creedence Clearwater, traditional country or standards. Mike is a native Italian New Yorker. A conversation with Mike is like talking with the Godfather driving a taxi. He has opened shows for War, The Shirelles, The Chiffons and The Rascals.
Dorothy Sills (sax/harmonica/vocals) special added guest artist when available and event budget allows.
As a woman saxophonist, she is something of a rarity. Her assertive style, which includes the raspy "dirty" tone often used in rock and roll and blues, adds energy to bands, and brings dancers to the floor. Her powerful vocal harmonies and blues & country harmonica adds a fresh, innovative, BIG sound to Crystal Image. She has opened for many blues festivals and major acts, including Los Lobos, Jeff Healy, Lou Rawls and Three time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum songwriter, Mike Henderson.
