Johnny Cash tribute in Comox

David James and his band Big River at Little Red Church tonight

Johnny once said, “You know, performance is communicating. You’ve got to communicate. You’ve got a song you’re singing from your gut; you want that audience to feel it in their gut.”

Appearing before sold out crowds, David James and his band Big River are North America’s favourite Johnny Cash tribute act, performing the hits spanning five decades over Johnny’s career. They are dedicated to replicating the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute the world has ever seen, in the style and the sound of Johnny Cash himself.

His natural voice is so close to the Man In Black, but James says there’s more to the tribute than just the sound.

“It’s not only about the voice” says Dave. “It’s about living and breathing the man – his posture, his mannerisms, his moves, and his quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself”.

James nails Johnny’s mannerisms and voice down, and entertains with that same principle, singing all of the great Cash songs you love including, “I Walk

The Line”, “Solitary Man”, “Get Rhythm”, “Folsom Prison”, “Ring of Fire” and newer songs like “Hurt” and Rusty Cage.

When you hear that familiar, mighty voice, those legendary, deep, dark tones, just close your eyes and dare to compare. Even the most discerning of Johnny Cash fans concede that Dave’s homage to one of the world’s greatest ever icons is profoundly believable.

Make sure you don’t miss this incredible show!

Tickets for the Friday, May 13 show are available in advance ($20) at Red Carpet Consignment (264 Anderton Rd., Comox) and Bop City Records (211 Simms St, Courtenay). Tickets will be $25 at the door.

Show starts at 7:30 p.m.
