Saturday January 21st, the Linsmore Tavern is full of anticipation to welcome for the very first time, CoveredinCash: Johnny Cash Tribute! We have heard so many amazing things about this band and all or their legendary shows at the An Sibin, that we had to get them in for a night! They are not just any Johnny Cash Tribute Band, they are the Best Johnny Cash Cover Band in Canada!
Featuring Rick Aulier as Johnny Cash who happened to own the very popular Irish Bar on Queen Street - An Sibin, where CoveredinCash played many capacity filled and memorable shows over the years at this popular bar! Rick Aulier doesn't try to be an impersonator of Johnny Cash, but if you closed your eyes and started the set by saying, "Hello I'm Johnny Cash", for one fitting moment you would fee you just heard the voice of the man in black. His contagious banter on stage draws you in and every now and then, when it gets more rockabily than country, Rick Aulier tones it down with heartfelt ballads like the swan song of Cash, "Hurt".
CoveredinCash has a great line-up of musicians, on lead guitar sending out Allman-esque solos is James Quinn. On bass guitar seasoned, Richard Bunnyboils holds the fort with a solid beat and great background oohs and ahhs. On acoustic guitar is Tom Price, almost looking too young to know the tunes, but obviously embraces them with great gusto and has a magnetic stage presence partnered with solid rhythms. Price also has background vocals that blend well with Aulier. On drums, the only Irish part of the band is Conor Garrity, who keeps a solid hold on the backbeat of the show. Well respected keyboardist Herve Basset who has played with everyone in Toronto's music scene rounds out this impressive group of musicians!
Covered in Cash is a great tribute to a great artist! This show is definitely going to be a SELL-OUT, so get your tickets now! Tickets are only $5 in advance, $10 at the door! You can buy tickets at the bar or here: BUY TICKETS!!
