THE JOHNNY CASH

TRIBUTE SHOW

Man in Black

People say that music is the language of the soul, and nothing could be truer for Johnny Cash tribute artist, George Richard, and his Johnny Cash Tribute Show band members. Composed of a group of talented vocalists and musicians from northern Vermont, the band shares a great passion for the soulful, iconic music of Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash and the Tennessee Three.  The Johnny Cash Tribute Show authentically recreates Johnny's legendary rockabilly, blues, folk and gospel sound.  Their dedication to that authentic sound is a fitting tribute to The Man in Black.

BAND BIOGRAPHY

One Piece at a Time

20160731_221631.jpg

George actually met Johnny and June in person several times in the late '80's, and ever since then, held the dream of  one day forming his own Johnny Cash tribute  band.   With the help of some amazing local musicians (and some good fortune), George met the wonderful people that shared his vision.  George Richard, as Johnny Cash, has a baritone voice that reminds all of the "golden-throated" Cash. Our female vocalist, Marie Ragan, as June Carter  Cash, accompanies George for duets, as well as performing a powerful rendition of Patsy Cline songs. 

 

Our marvelous musicians, Shawn Emery (as Luther Perkins), Wayne Wanser  (W.S. Holland), Don Quenneville (Marshall Grant) and Chris Martin (Carl Perkins) passionately bring that familiar, authentic Cash sound.   

We have performed at  various music venues around Vermont, New Hampshire  and Massachusetts as well as in six Vermont prisons! The band  enjoys giving  back to our communities with benefit concerts.  We've teamed up with the Burlington Moose Lodge  and  The Abbey Restaurant  for several years now during 98.9 WOKO's Big Change Roundup to help raise money for the UVM Children's Hospital.
