    According to Markos Papadatos, who wrote a recent review of the band’s recent gig on

    “In their elaborate set, The Cover Girl Band paid homage to Led Zeppelin and it was immediately followed by Pat Benatar’s “Heartbreaker,” where front-woman Jennifer Cella displayed her powerhouse pipes.”

    Papadatos added “Cella killed the vocals on “What’s Up?” and she did Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” justice. Equally compelling were her renditions of “Landslide” and Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart,” where she showcased her crisp, raspy vocals.”

    Papadatos went on to give the band’s performance, an “A rating”.
