Press Release posted 6/15/13 – Sierra Madre’s own home-based and wildly popular band, Cow Bop, will bring its unique mix of swingin’ grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals, western sensibilities and tons of fun to a free concert in the park on June 23rd at the Memorial Park Band Shell, 222 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
Cow Bop has played nightclubs and concert venues throughout the world, including Carnegie Hall, but they are comfortable in such diverse surroundings as roadside taverns and at festivals like the Montreal and Monterey Jazz Festivals, the Sisters Folk Festival, as well as the Elko, Heber City, Monterey and Santa Clarita Cowboy Gatherings. In 2004 Cow Bop won the Route 66 Challenge, traveling the length of the historic route starting with only $100.00 and no scheduled gigs. They always hit the stage with an electrifying and entertaining assortment of music and frolic.
Their first CD, Swinging Out West, was released in 2004 and charted four different genres. Their subsequent CD’; Route 66, Too Hick for the Room, and their newest, Cowlifornia Swing, have delighted critics around the world. Their music has been described as “the most fun you can have with your spurs on.”
