Hold onto your (black) hats; “Cash Unchained, the ultimate Johnny Cash tribute band will be performing at The Historic Masonic Theatre on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 pm in the John E Hillert Auditorium. Take a journey back in time to experience the life and music of “The Man in Black” performed by “Cash Unchained”. The band has been nationally sought after while touring all over the United States bringing the sights and sounds of the legendary Johnny Cash and this will be the second time that “Cash Unchained” has appeared on the stage of The Historic Masonic Theatre. From the early days with Sam Philips at Sun Records to the later years with Rick Rubin and American Recordings, “Cash Unchained” delivers a complete catalog of breathtaking music from one of the greatest country artists of all time. Experience it on March 31 for one night only!
Johnny Cash’s sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp like a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock ‘n’ roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn’t have some of the music we’ve all enjoyed over the six decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff captures Cash’s trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three. Tamelcoff remarks, “I’m not going to get up onstage and say, ‘I’m Johnny Cash.’ We’re not impersonators. We’re ambassadors for the music. No one is ever going to see Johnny Cash perform again, so we’re all just keeping the music alive.”
The group has sold-out theatres across the southeast, including the legendary House of Blues. They will entertain you with Cash’s greatest hits including “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “Walk the Line”, and many more. You will also hear songs from the end of Cash’s career including his final hit “Hurt” written by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails).
Justin Reiter, executive director of The Historic Masonic Theatre remarked, “Cash Unchained is a high-energy, crowd-pleasing show and we are thrilled to have them back in the Theatre”.
