Cowgirl's Dream at Third Place Commons Friday

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Tacoma band Cowgirl's Dream will be performing free at 7:30pm at Third Place Commons on Friday, March 9, 2018. 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park 98155.

Starting with the time-worn tradition of western swing music, the Tacoma-based band was created with the debut of Kristi Nebel's album, DETOUR. 

Nebel brings her years of love in performing this music to her lead singing, with back-up harmonies and a few original songs from Steve Nebel.

She says, “When recording my solo album we remained true to the tradition of western swing and found that that easily included songs composed by Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter as well as by Bob Wills and Hank Thompson.”
Kristi was voted among the top five female singers for the Academy of Western Artists 2014 Will Rogers Awards. Toby Hanson, accordionist, lends his skills in arranging tunes as well as playing them. His background is as the young founder of the polka band, The Smilin' Scandinavians. Years of local dance drumming experience come from Tacoman Mike Friel.

In the past two years the band performed in the Mossyrock Blueberry Festival, parks concerts in Port Orchard, Seattle, Steilacoom, and on the Taste of Tacoma Festival stage as well as the Pacific Festival stage. They did concerts at the Skamokawa Grange and the Roxy Theatre in Morton, as well. Their album debut concert at A Rhapsody in Bloom in Tacoma was a sold-out event.

The songs the band play have been familiar to country dancers for three generations of Americans from sea to shining sea. As well, the group lends some self-penned Americana songs to the mix.
