James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash celebrates the life and music of the legendary “Man in Black” with strong conviction and stunning accuracy. Garner and his band faithfully recreate Cash’s biggest hits, such as “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line” and “Ring of Fire,” and present historical accounts and personal anecdotes about America’s most beloved singing storyteller. The Tennessee Three is made up of guitarist and vocalist Denny Colleret, bassist and vocalist Rick Duncan, and drummer Nick Auriemmo.

Former reporter for the Ventura Star Free Press, who attended Cash’s historic concert at Folsom Prison in 1968, Gene Beley raves, “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.”

From theatres 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 300 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. KUIC Radio acclaims, “If you shut your eyes and listened you could swear it was Johnny Cash singing right there in front of you. Don’t keep them closed for too long though as lead vocalist James Garner is a pleasure to watch!” While Garner is not a Cash impersonator, he is a big Cash fan. Garner became hooked on Cash’s music at an early age, getting his hands on everything Cash. At age 14, 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, Garner and his band present Cash’s music as fans, for fans.
