Lemon Creek is “The Northwest’s Premier Tribute to Women of Pop and Rock”—from Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, and Garbage; to Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, Elle King, Dua Lipa, and many more—with some fun and exciting detours along the way. We perform songs by women rockers and popsters from the 1990s to now. Plan to dance!

“I was still hearing how well you performed and how great the music was from guests and employees three days after you performed. Looking forward to having Lemon Creek return!”  Christine Harrison, Entertainment Booking, Silver Reef Casino

“Great band—great sound! Easy to work with. They started on time, kept their volume to reasonable levels, and got the people dancing. Their lead singer is killer. Definitely will hire again!”  John H., bar manager.

Lemon Creek began rehearsals in November, 2017 with the idea of bringing our interpretations of some popular songs by female artists to audiences around the Northwest. Since then we have performed at many venues, including the Skagit Fair, The City Of Bellingham’s annual July 4 celebration, the Silver Reef and Skagit casinos, and at many clubs and special events.  Lemon Creek is available for private or company parties, weddings, benefits or other events. We are based in Bellingham, WA, and can perform most anywhere in the Northwest.  Please contact us for rates.

It felt great to play again July 10 in Bellingham for our first public performance since the pandemic started. A fun outdoor private party with great people, perfect weather, a nice stage, and plenty to eat and drink. We’re looking forward to more of the same, and now taking bookings for both indoor and outdoor events, parties, and music venues. This was also drummer Gary Snyder’s first performance with the band–great to have him aboard!
