Cathy Rivers at Congress to see Cum 'n Go and Mankind, Summer 2003.

IMAGE CIA ROMANO 2003

Performer, radio personality, rock manager (Cracker!) and down-to-earth human, Cathy's well-loved despite the rough-and-tumble of the rock biz. She knows the perils of taking a stand in a volatile and male-dominated culture, but she handles her encounters with such panache that we have yet to hear any smack-talk. And in Tucson, that's saying a lot. That great smile and gritty 'tude can't hurt. Cathy actively supports local music (by playing gigs as well as showing up and buying drinks for struggling musicians) and local arts via groups such as MOCA. Buy her a drink next time you see her. She deserves a lot more. A toast to Ms. Rivers.
