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), Marty Morrissey (Jack Clement), Wayne Wanser (W.S. Holland) and Chris Martin (Marshall Grant) passionately bring that familiar, authentic Cash sound. A few months ago, we were very fortunate and honored to have an incredible sound man join our show…Frank Paulik. Many thanks to Dennis Fox, who graciously lends his support when needed for stage lighting and standing-in for our guitarists.
