DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The band Cover Drive is coming to the University of Dubuque, Thursday, Apr. 9.

The show is set for 7:30 p.m. in Heritage's Center John and Alice Butler Hall on the University of Dubuque campus.  It's free and open to the public, though tickets are required.  You can get your tickets at the Farber Box Office, on the phone at 563-585-7469 or online at www.dbq.edu/heritagecenter.

Cover Drive is a band on a mission to bring the sunshine and sounds of their native Barbados to the world. The young quartet ignited the UK charts with three top 10 hits in 2012, inclusive of their infectious smash “Twilight”, which shot straight to No. 1 upon release, nabbed a 2012 Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best Caribbean Performance, and had their collaboration with Far East Movement, “Turn Up The Love”, selected as a part of President Obama 2013 inaugural playlist.

Cover Drive describes their sound as ‘Carib-pop' – a bubbly blend of their Caribbean roots in reggae, dub and soca with happy, hook-laden pop; hear it and you won't stop smiling!
