Cash’d Out is a San Diego-based band that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets. Beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” and the group having won six San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, and being the only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, the real proof lies in what members of Cash’s inner circle have said. “Cindy Cash came to a show, we made her cry and she gave me a necklace with Johnny’s hair in a glass locket,” explains front man Douglas Benson. The group’s genuine love of Johnny Cash’s music and its universal appeal fans of all ages, and of virtually all musical genres, makes each Cash’d Out show a must-see event.
Cash’d Out will take the stage Friday, April 22nd around 11:00 PM at Hill Country BBQ NY (30 W. 26th St. New York, NY), and tickets are a steal at only $10-$15. Grab yours here.
Cash’d Out will be on tour through July, including stops at the Grog Shop in Cleveland on April 29th, Knuckleheads Saloon in Kansas City on May 6th and Club Congress in Tucson, AZ on May 14th.
