Kozmic Pearl Band Review



From The Plant City Dining & Entertainment Guide ( JULY 2014 ISSUE )

Local Band ~ Kozmic Pearl Brings
 Music to the Spotlight
 with swing and
 swagger to spare, local band
 Kozmic Pearl channeled 6o's-era rock 'n roll crooners during the
 band's electrifying performance at Sunset Grill at
 Little Harbor. Kozmic Pearl is a 5-piece band from
 the Tampa Bay area with a unique but instantly
 familiar sound that is contagiously high energy and
 always fun. All members have been part of other
 popular bands over the years. Their styles meshed
 into what has been called the best of songs that fill
 the dance floor. All members are excellent
 musicians, and four of the five can hold their own
 doing lead vocals.
 Their lead singer, Dottie Devane has a very strong
 stage presence and an amazing voice. She is
 known as the best Janis Joplin singer in the area.
 Lead Guitarist Bill Pike is arguably one of the best
 guitarists in the bay area. Mark Hall, the bass
 player is a great vocalist with a distinctive style.
 Drummer, James "Big Country" Mcknight, has
 toured the country with a well known national
 artist recently. Terry Devane, Bandleader, singer
 and guitar player, brings his sense of humor to the
 show.
 Kicking off with arousing rendition of "Come
 Together" by the Beatles, the band played music
 from Chuck Berry to Stevie Ray Vaughn to Tracy
 Chapman. Combining elements of Classic Rock,
 Dance and R&B, the band captured the attention of
 the audience late into the evening. The catchy
 number, "Chain of Fools" had the audience filling
 the dance floor.
 That said, the audience reserved some of the
 biggest cheers of the night for Dottie Devane's "Me
 & Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin. Dottie Devane
 channels Janis in every note of her sultry
 performance. Devane, who has left audience
 members marveling at her ability to recreate
 Joplin's San Francisco sound, performs all of the
 singer's hits such as Piece of My Heart, Turtle
 Blues ,Get it While You Can and the stunning
 rendition of Me &Bobby McGee.
 You can see Kozmic Pearl perform monthly at the
 Sunset Grill at Little Harbor in Ruskin. For more
