We All Just Wanna Be Big Rockstars

The Almost Patsy Cline Band and Coldwell Bankers very own Lanette Pannell, has proven that they are no opening act but in fact the main attraction at any gig they are attending. 

The Almost Patsy Cline Band is strongly influenced by the great singers and musicians of the past, while blending yesterday’s music onto today’s stage. The nostalgic music touches the heart, stirs the memory of the old, and educates the young, all while creating the best musical experience possible.

All of their performances are customize for age group and include: music for dancing or a choice of *Timeless Tunes – the Stories and the Songs, of country music’s roots to the sounds of legends like, Bob Wills, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, with Patsy Cline songs and how they mirrored her life. Also paying a tribute to America and the longest married couples attending the show. All of the shows are brought to life through high quality country and variety dance music, three interactive theater shows, or school programs!

The Almost Patsy Cline Band has been listed on the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster for the past eight years. In the even numbered years the band has to re-apply for their slot on the Roster. The Roster is a part of the State’s grant system that grants money to qualifying non-profits for presenting the arts to their rural communities.
