This Santa Cruz based, western swing outfit performs Patsy's hits andheartbreakers with true authenticity. The Carolyn Sills Combo is a 2016 and 2017 Ameripolitan Award nominee and Academy of Western Artist nominee for Western Swing group of the year. This special event will showcase a full night of Patsy Cline’s upbeat honky tonk and country numbers, classic ballads and lesser known gems, all sung and played with amazing authenticity by Carolyn and her ace combo. The band
includes top Monterey Bay players Charlie Joe Wallace (steel guitar), Jimmy Norris (drums), Gerard Egan (guitar) and Jerry Logan (bass). Patsy Cline herself would have been 85 years old on September 8th, 2017.

The Carolyn Sills Combo is an Americana favorite in the Monterey Bay area, known for their original country, western and swing, and seen at venues like Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Kate Wolf Music Festival, Live Oak Music Festival, Pioneer Days in Paso Robles and more. They just released their second album, Dime Stories Vol 2 to rave reviews. "Local powerhouse Carolyn Sills is the real deal of throwback country music. She has enough soul, heart, style and swag to convince audiences and listeners that they may have been transported to an era
where country swing rules the waves, juke joints were the place to be, and heartache had a kick like a mule." - Santa Cruz Good Times

"Carolyn Sills has been winning over Santa Cruz music lovers with her'Patsy Cline Spectacular' concerts. After years in New York City, playing bass with country/rockabilly outfits and singing with the likes of Les Paul, Carolyn Sills has relocated to the west coast to bring her one-of- a-kind show to Santa Cruz County. Sultry 1940’s and 50’s pop, lively twang, surf, rock n’ roll ballads all torched and red hot are part of the mix." - San Jose Mercury News
