hot, jazzy and has a drawl!" San Francisco Chronicle

Mix swingin' grooves, thrilling riffs, sweet and hot vocals,

acoustic western sensibilities and tons of fun and you have

only begun to describe Cow Bop. Formed in 2003 by internationally-acclaimed

guitarist Bruce Forman,

this western bebop band has toured extensively throughout the

country, exciting audiences with their unique brand of American

music. In 2004, Cow Bop won the Route 66 Challenge, traveling

the length of the storied road having departed with a mere $100

and no scheduled gigs. Their CD, Swingin' Out West,

released in 2004, charted on Americana, Jazz, College and Adult

Contemporary radio stations. In 2008, Cow Bop followed up with

Route 66 in commeration of their third trek across

the storied route. Their new release, Too Hick for the Room,

is already garnering lots of excitement, thrilling people with

swing herding, tune wranglin and mind-boggling genre-bending!

Catch Bruce's playing featured in Clint Eastwood's Academy Award-winning

film, Million Dollar Baby, and his

newest release Hereafter.
