There’s two types of people in this world: Those who like Johnny Cash and those that don’t know a damn thing about music.
CASH, featuring the rich and gruff baritone of Ben Welburn, have recreated the sound, vibe and appeal of the master himself. Ex-farm boy Ben Welburn came across JR through musical parents and freely admits to a lightbulb moment and identifying with his outlaw approach to life.
The Man In Black, one of the most influential musicians of the last century spanning country, rockabilly, blues, gospel, folk and rock ‘n’ roll. That deep baritone, the chick-a-boom of The Tennessee Three, the surly guitar twang of Carl Perkins, the ground-breaking prison shows and all the battles with alcohol and drugs … its all there in a great survivor’s story, book-ended of course by the unbelievable sessions with Rick Rubin.
“The last time CASH played London with us, BBC 6Music’s Huey Morgan personally asked for the support slot – it doesn’t get much better than that!” – Jon Wing (02 Academy Events Promoter).
“Without a doubt, CASH are one of the most authentic and skiiled tribute bands we have worked with and we look forward to booking them again in the near future.” – Alan Mcleod (promoter – Shetland).
“The CASH band are 12 Bar favourites. When they play, you close your eyes and you feel like you’re at a real Johnny Cash concert – I’m forever being asked when they’re coming back.” – Barnet Mark (promoter/manager of The 12 Bar, London)
“I don’t like country music. The chords are too clean and the lyrics are too darn obvious. With this mindset I was dragged to see a Johnny Cash tribute band (and I don’t like tribute bands). Then they started to play… Never did I get hooked on an act so fast, which by right should have caused a severe allergic reaction. Fun, kicking and above all unpretentious – thank you, CASH!” – Yak Bondy (songwriter/producer).
Cash was born … they walk the line.
