Chasing AshleeCover Band, 70s to Today Classic and Current Rock
Wilkes Barre, PA
"Chasing Ashlee" is an all-occasion cover band playing Current and Classic Rock hits from the 70s to Today. They feature a female vocalist, which takes the songs you know and love, and twists them into a new, rocking tune... while still keeping the integrity of the old tune! You've got to hear it to believe it! You may recognize some members from the band formerly known as "Stealing Neil", a wildly successful NEPA Cover Band. It also borrows an area drummer whose repertoire precedes him, with bands ranging from "The Russello Project" and the "Idol Kings". The last puzzle piece was a young lady who has been lending her powerhouse vocals to bands in NEPA for the past 7 years- Names such as "Blush", "Flaxy Morgan", "Hoopla" and others. So- a new direction and one vocalist change later, and they are "Chasing Ashlee"- a new band with the same classic rock sound, adding in some commanding female vocals to round out an already kick-ass line-up. This band is one you'll tell your friends about.
