ZUMBROTA - Cassie and the Bobs will take you on a musical journey back in time. Imagine it is the early 1960s and you are at a concert featuring the biggest female country singer in the country, Patsy Cline. That is the experience Crossings is striving for at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at the State Theatre.
Cassie and the Bobs features accomplished musicians dedicated to sounding as authentic and true to the spirit of the original recordings as possible. The group continues to draw hundreds of people to their performances, a testimony to the enduring popularity of Cline more than 50 years after her death.
Cline was a pioneer of the 1960s Nashville sound and as a female headline performer. She had attained great success by age 30, when she died in a private plane crash. She remains a major influence for many singers and is one of the most acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th century. She was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame - the first female soloist to receive that honor.
