If you’re looking to inject some upbeat holiday spirit into these rainy days before Christmas, you might want to meet Ella, Bella, and Stella Duvet, aka The Coverlettes, who will be playing Berkeley Wednesday and Thursday this week.

The “Coverlettes Cover Christmas” was a hit at the Aurora Theatre in 2008 and 2009, and now the fictitious ’60s-era girl group has crossed the street to the Freight & Salvage for a Christmas cabaret concert.

Bella, Ella, and Stella Duvet — otherwise known as Katie Guthorn, Carol Bozzio Littleton, and Darby Gould — are three sisters from “the wrong side of Vermont” and they perform with their band The Fellas: pianist Rusty McTurk, bassist Rudy Tuesday, and drummer Ray Wray.

The show features the sisters’ versions of their favorite Christmas songs, mixed in with lots of ’60s girl group hits by the likes of The Shangri-Las, The Ronettes, The Shirelles and The Crystals.

And if you like what you see, you can always catch Katie Guthorn on the last Tuesday of every month at Café Trieste in Berkeley where she sings with the Randy Craig Trip, featuring her husband, guitarist Terry Haggerty.

The “Coverlettes Cover Christmas”, Freight & Salvage, December 22 and 23, at 8pm (doors open a 7pm). Tickets $18.50 in advance, $19.50 on the door — or buy them online.
