Description Of Patsy Cline And Friends: 60th Anniversary Show

The Moonshine Boys provide a great banjo melody to start the show. We then meet our first guest, Hank Williams (Marc Robinson), dressed immaculately in a white suit featuring blue musical notes. His songs included Move It On Over, Settin’ The Woods On Fire, and Hey Good Lookin’. Not forgetting Your Cheatin’ Heart and There’s A Tear In My Beer. Our next guest was Jim Reeves (Lee Davidge), and he sang the ever-popular Welcome To My World. He also sang I Won’t Forget You, I Love You Because, and Distant Drums.

Next up was the main event: Patsy Cline (Sue Lowry)! She wore a fantastic red and white western suit. Her songs included Bill Bailey, Won’t You Please Come Home; Honky-Tonk Merry-Go-Round; and Walkin’ After Midnight. The tempo then slowed for Love Letters In The Sand and Tennessee Waltz. But the tempo went upbeat again for Down By The Riverside. And fittingly, the first half ended with Patsy’s most famous song Crazy as the audience sang along.

Second Half

Patsy returned to the stage with Blue Moon Of Kentucky; Shake Rattle and Roll; and Three Cigarettes In An Ashtray. She also sang True Love, and then a duet of Have You Ever Been Lonely alongside Jim Reeves. Furthermore, Jim sang Mexican Joe, He’ll Have To Go, and Roses Are Red. There was also a very lively rendition of Bimbo which the audience danced long to. One attendee even danced with a stick at the front of the stage!

From there, Patsy sang the emotional You Belong To Me, I Love You Honey, and I Fall To Pieces. Hank Williams then sang Howling At The Moon, before the band sang Tutti Frutti, Jambalaya, and Take These Chains From My Heart. Patsy also performed She’s Got You and Sweet Dreams before the finale began. All three main singers performed Lovesick Blues, and the final song was Deep In The Heart Of Texas.

Analysis Of Patsy Cline And Friends: 60th Anniversary Show

This was a tremendous show. All three singers were excellent, and the band was terrific too. The audience was up singing and dancing from start to finish, with so many recognisable hits on display. There was a certain feel-good energy to the show with everybody on hand to have a good time. And not forgetting the amazing costumes, particularly for Patsy!

Summary Of Patsy Cline And Friends: 60th Anniversary Show
