There are many Patsy Cline tribute shows, but with Cassie Wiesner and The Bob Band, audience members will get the whole package - a group dedicated to sounding as authentic and true to the spirit of the original recordings as possible.

With guitar, bass, pedal steel, piano, fiddles and drums, Wiesner and The Bob Band, will play a plethora of Patsy Cline hits including Crazy, Walking After Midnight, Sweet Dreams, I Fall to Pieces and more.
