Covacus: Almost Famous

When name dropping odd Carolina combos to establish musical common ground with ladies at the grocery store, the under documented Covacus from Greensboro gets a surprising market share. Vinyl-wise, one mighty appearance on the Budweiser Showdown series in the mid-‘80s constitutes the entirety of their analog catalog. The chronically misspelled group is best remembered for launching the career of vocalist Barbara Weather, who left Covacus to join Atlantic Starr, a tenure immortalized in the slow-jam canon with sensitive songs like “Always” and “Secret Lovers.” Save for Weathers, a whole slew, old and new, of Covacus folk will be assembling for a free concert Sunday, October 10th, as part of the North Carolina A&T University homecoming celebration. Provided is a new song, “Woo” by Charlie Mock, which should give newcomers and old timers an idea of what is to be expected. Here’s a hint: Wind Chimes!
