A free concert series continues in Comfort Park with an upcoming performance by the Almost Patsy Cline Trio.
From 7 to 8:30 p.m. July 9, the band will play a mix of western melodies centered around the music of Patsy Cline.
“They are a feel-good act that you can listen to over and over again,” states a press release.
A few years ago, Lanette Pennell, leader of the Almost Patsy Cline Band, realized that there was a demand for a smaller version of the popular, larger group. So, The Almost Patsy Cline Trio came into existence, consisting of Lanette Pennell, bass, Vicki Gillespie, keyboards, and Larry Lucas, lead guitar. The band features Patsy Cline hits and songs from George Strait, Tammy Wynette, Glen Campbell, Etta James, Johnny Bush, Ray Price, Frank Sinatra, Loretta Lynn, The Eagles and others.
“The group’s personal arrangements and presentations of these traditional offerings preserve the richness of the past without ever sounding stale or ‘old hat,’” states the release.
Attendees can expect to hear three-part harmony, as each of the band’s members will contribute their voices to the music.
“Our audiences like to hear the music they grew up with, and these tunes bring back fond memories,” said Pennell in the release. “That connection is what creates a memorable, fun, musical experience.”
The July 9 event is sponsored by Gaddis Methodist Church of Comfort, in partnership with the Comfort Chamber of Commerce.
The concert series will continue to be the second Tuesday evening of each month, May through October, with the band playing in the gazebo and the crowd scattered around the park. Everyone is urged to bring their own chairs due to limited seating. Free water and sodas are available at the ice chests as a gift from Gaddis Church.
