David James & Big River “The Legendary Tribute to Johnny Cash”

Categories: concert seriesTags: , , , , , Author:

NANAIMO, B.C. – David James and Big River are often described as one of the
most authentic Johnny Cash tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans
agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and
small across Canada and the U.S.
James and his band – Todd Sacerty on bass, Duncan Symonds on guitar and
pedal steel, and Colin Stevenson on drums – look and sound like the legacy of
the Man in Black, and when they step on stage, they live it. From the way Cash
holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musician lives
again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash.”
The professionalism of the musicians on and off stage is a testament to the
memory of Cash that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.
The extensive catalogue of songs, from classics like Walk the Line, Get Rhythm
and Boy Named Sue, to newer hits like Rusty Cage and Hurt, attracts audiences
of young and old alike to relive the music of Johnny Cash.
James has dedicated himself to recreating an authentic tribute to Cash, focusing
on not only his rich baritone, but also his mannerisms and his interaction with
the crowd, whether it’s an intimate show in a high-end casino or an outdoor
festival like the Calgary Stampede or the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in
Vancouver.
“It’s not only about the voice,” James said. “It’s about living and breathing
the man – his posture, his mannerisms, his moves and his quirks. I want our
audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself.”
James is succeeding.
According to Lisa Wilton at the Calgary Sun, “James does his best to look the
part – black is the primary colour from his hair down to his shoes – but it’s his
uncanny vocal similarity to Cash that is most impressive. Even when he talks,
James has the singer’s low rumble down pat.”
The Man in Black might be gone, but David James and Big River are fulfilling the
continuing demand for his music and keeping the memory of the legend alive in
the hearts and minds of fans everywhere.
