’60s country covers are the mainstay of the Country Casanovas repertoire, and what other reason but fun can there be for playing songs like “Honky Tonk Man,” “Heartaches by the Number,” “Pick Me Up on Your Way Down,” and “Live Fast, Die Young”? The band delivers a variety of vocal looks from the front line of Norm “The Uzbekistani Elvis” Collins, Emily “The Czechoslovakian Songbird” Hayes and Scott Hill. These vocal change-ups add depth, hold interest and make the Casanovas more than a jukebox band.
The band’s live show is particularly recommended since leader Collins is happy to share the stage. If you’re lucky, you’ll hit a night when Bobby Martinez drops by to sing “Kansas City,” but you never know who will be sitting in at a Country Casanovas show. Maybe even you? MySpace
