We also have a pair of alumni who are each working on their singing with some local cover bands. First up is one we've covered in the past, 2005 alumnus Ashlee A. She spent a few years singing lead for the Studio 54 Dance Band and currently sings for About Face, a local band that specializes in weddings and the occasional restaurant/club in Western NY. Find out more at http://aboutfaceband.com/ Ashlee's not giving up her dreams of stardom, however. When she's not singing with About Face or working at the martial arts academy that she and her fiance own, she's working on getting on the television show Glee. Her audition videos are up at http://www.myspace.com/gleeauditions?link=3681221 where, besides watching the videos, fans can vote for her to help her out through 3pm ET on Thursday by giving her a gold star.
For another look at her singing, view this video of her singing 2 summers ago at Buffalo's Italian Festival.

With looks like Penelope Cruz and the voice of an angel, who wouldn't want to see and hear Ashlee on TV every week?
Last, but certainly not least, we come to 2003 Jills alumnus Aimee L, seen here with the afore-mentioned Studio 54 Dance Band, where I finally got the chance to meet her myself. Aimee is no stranger to the spotlight in the Buffalo area after spending several years singing as the lead in the Disco Duck Band. These days, she's moved on from disco and sings rock, funk, and country with Naughty Dawg when she's not helping out her friends in Studio 54, feeding her disco and dance fix. http://www.naughtydawgband.com/
Finally, a little reminder for the high school seniors and juniors out there in Western NY who haven't decided on a date to the prom. 97Rock's annual Take a Jill To The Prom Contest is almost done accepting entries and at noon on Friday the 30th, all the guys competing in the contest will be voted on by the public. The winner gets a limo ride to his prom complete with the companionship of one of the Buffalo Jills. This year, the lucky winner has a difficult task to perform after winning...choosing his date between Gabrielle, Ruby, Alyssa, Courteney, Lindsay, and Valerie. The contest can be found at http://www.97rock.com/Article.asp?id=1760222&spid=21992
