Drummer: Lilith LaCroix

One potential drummer for The Cover Gurlz is Lilith LaCroix who "has been described as Sheila E meets Priscilla Queen of the Desert - she's New Zealand's own drumming drag queen, and she's loved by all as a national treasure."

Lilith has released a CD called "I Wonder" (pictured at right) and youtube hosts some terrific video of her performing live.

As Lilith has previously explained, a project like The Cover Girls can prove irrisistible: "Drag is like the car accident of performance. No matter how horrific is seems, you have to stop and have a look."

In one interview, Lilith explained the appeal of drag drumming:
“I've always loved female percussionists,” says Farr. “I guess it's got something to do with the underdog thing – that you just never used to see them. Many of my teachers have been female percussionists. There's also something incredibly sexy about women playing percussion
Lilith LaCroix is talented and beautiful, which easily makes her a prospective member of The Cover Gurlz.
