“The Northwest’s Premier Tribute To Women Of Pop & Rock, From The 80s To Now.”

For booking information please use contact form at the bottom of the page, or message us at our facebook site We are now accepting bookings for 2023.


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 1980s 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

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.

Live from our 9-1-22 performance at the Bellwether Hotel.

We are now booking public performances for 2023. Stay tuned for those dates! In the meantime, here is a “fly on the wall” recording of a recent rehearsal.

A Great Summer Of Outdoor Performances!

It was great to get back out and perform after nearly two years, due to the pandemic. All of our performances were outdoors, and the weather cooperated!

Here are some photos of a couple of our summer performances.
