From theaters and festivals to showrooms and prisons, audiences have reveled in the boom-chicka-boom sound recreated in this captivating, respectful and fun show. With more than 250 professional shows to its credit, James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash is solidly established as one of the best tribute acts in the country.
While James is not a Johnny Cash impersonator, he is a Johnny Cash fan (a really big one). James became hooked on Cash’s music at an early age, getting his hands on everything Cash. At age fourteen, he met Cash backstage after one of the singer’s shows, shaking his hand and telling him he was his “biggest fan.” Against that backdrop, James and his band proudly present the Man in Black’s music as fans, for fans.
“Garner and the Cash Tribute Band give concertgoers their money’s worth. This act is seasoned enough to go anywhere and will not disappoint the people who wish to resurrect that classic Johnny Cash voice and rhythm.”
