David James and his band Big River is a Johnny Cash tribute act performing all of the hits spanning five decades of Cash’s career.
His tour will appear in Campbell River March 7 at the Tidemark Theatre at 7:30 p.m. along with Sara-Jeanne Hosie’s tribute to Patsy Cline.
James, who plays Johnny Cash, nails Cash’s mannerisms and voice down proving this is the most authentic Johnny Cash Tribute in the business. A living prodigy to one of history’s true music legend, this is… Almost Johnny Cash.
Johnny Cash 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.”
James 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.
The iconic song “Crazy” is still a country classic and as she sings it, Sara-Jeanne Hosie has a unique gift to to persuade you that you are watching Patsy Cline re- born in the flesh.
Hosie sings from her heart and her soul, paying tribute to Cline’s classics, from the beautiful, Faded Love, the tragic, I Fall To Pieces and the iconic, Sweet Dreams. Hosie was the star of the play A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline that played to sold out performances all over the Province.
Hosie received great reviews all over B.C. doing this play last year. Her genuine stage presence and stunning vocal range. You won’t want to miss your chance to see Hosie in this double bill of this Country Legends Show featuring both tributes to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline.
