For the past couple of months, the Cowgirl Choir have been much in demand, performing across the city. Last night, they performed at the Comfort Zone for their first ever NXNE show.
Despite their early timeslot, they successfully gathered a small yet loyal group of fans to the after-hours dance club. The Comfort Zone may seem like an odd venue to show a group of harmonizing ladies singing country and pop tunes under black lights, but the club does boast some of the best acoustics I’ve heard yet.
The ladies, joined by their guitarist Scott Maynard, are best known for performing covers by Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Tom Waits. They had everyone’s foot tapping with “Look At Miss Ohio”, along with a lively medley of “Love Cats” and tugged at our heart’s string with their rendition of “Jolene”.
Last night’s performance was a perfect way to start everyone’s epic music journey. But if you’ve missed it, do not fret: the ladies are very much in demand and no doubt will be performing at a music venue near you soon.
