Singer/harmonicist Raya and guitarist Dalessandro made it an all-gender affair by joining forces with a trio of talented journeymen: guitarist James Robertson (formerly of Sweetfinger), bassist Scott Alamprese (Whiskey River) and drummer-vocalist Dale Loyola, who once did a stint with Ray Charles. The resulting band — named, presumably, after a short-lived Chevrolet car model from the late ’50s — plays the same mix of classic covers and soul-infused originals that made the old band so popular. – Taken directly from www.chandlercenter.org/performances/series-summer.html
