Every once in a while I become insanely excited about a band that I see and hear about for the first time. This was the case with Chevy Lopez which I had the pleasure of seeing perform at The Wonder Bar in Asbury Park for Happy Monday’s. Happy Monday’s was created by Christine Feola who had a cool idea about putting on a local free show every Monday to draw a crowd to the bar.
Chevy Lopez was the first band to take the stage, instantly the lead vocalist Lexi blew my freak’in mind. I couldn’t seem to turn away from listening to this band play. Lexi’s voice was so soulful and powerful, the way she moved and interacted with her band mates was so awesome to watch. They reside from the Jersey shore and Brooklyn and are made up of Lexi Todd (vocals), Greg Warren (lead guitar), Julian Massiah (saxophone), Chris Cielazewicz (drums), Thatcher Harrison (Bass guitar) and Ryan McShea (rhythm guitar/keyboard/percussion).
