About My Business:


The Almost Patsy Cline Band offers quality, traditional country and variety dance music or a stage show called Timeless Tunes, The Stories and The Songs; A collection of classic country music brought to life. It's interactive, fun and features tributes to veterans and the longest married couples in attendance. Lanette Pennell (bassist, songwriter, vocalist) and Vicki Gillespie (actress, keyboard player, vocalist) formed Almost Patsy Cline in 2001. Audiences loved the harmonies by Pennell and Gillespie and the frequently requested Patsy Cline songs spawned the band name. As the band grew, it became apparent that the public was starving for traditional music from legendary artists of the past. Band members Larry Nolen (guitars, vocals), Larry Lucas (guitars, vocals) and Rick Reynolds (drums, vocals) offer songs from Bob Wills, Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Chuck Berry, Elvis and others while Pennell and Gillespie deliver the balance of the female legends. The Texas Commission on the Arts has placed the Almost Patsy Cline Band on the 2010–2012 Touring Artists and Companies Roster. The Roster is part of the state grants system that provides funds for the support of the performing arts and a Who’s Who of Texas Acts that tour the state. The Almost Patsy Cline Band has a strong sense of community. In 2003, Denise Griffin, Mayor of Bandera, declared The Almost Patsy Cline Band the Official City Goodwill Ambassadors. 2004 brought the Cowboy Capital Award from the Bandera County Chamber of Commerce, awarded for spreading the brand of The Cowboy Capital of the World. Public response to Gettin’ Older’s Getting’ Easy, the band’s first CD (2004), and the band’s second CD, Love At First Dance (2005), exceeded all expectations. A third CD, Almost Patsy, was released in November of 2007. It is a respectful tribute to the greatest female country singer of all time, Patsy Cline. The Almost Patsy Cline band continues to perform throughout the state for Texans and visitors alike. You may have seen them at Celebrate Bandera, The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, The Gillespie County Fair, the Texas Association of Fairs and Events Showcase in Austin or at numerous private parties, dance clubs, corporate events and fundraisers.
