8:00 pm : David James and Big River... Johnny Cash Tribute.
8pm. $15. Please call 403-262-2666 to make your Reservations. Or email us your number: info@thebluescan.com
David James is one of the world’s leading, most convincing tribute artists in the music business. Most tribute bands consciously try to look, act and sound like their idols. Dave doesn’t have to try. A living prodigy to one of history’s true phenonomens, he is Almost . . . . . Johnny Cash. David nails Johnny\'s mannerisms and voice down. In fact, he was honored to provide Cash\'s voice to the soon to be released movie \"My Father and the Man in Black\", proving that he is the most authentic Johnny Cash Tribute artist in the business. He sings all of the great Cash songs you love, including, \"I Walk the Line:, \"Solitary Man\", \"Get Rhythm\", \"Folsom Prison\", \"Ring of Fire\", and new songs like \"Hurt\" and \"Rusty Cage\". Born on a small farm in Alberta, Dave was exposed to Country and Western music at the beginning of and throughout his childhood. His father, Gabe, made it his mission to introduce Dave to artists he referred to as “the real deal”. The King of them all was . . . of course . . . Johnny Cash!
