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

October 24 - 8pm

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 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. 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.   “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.” - Lisa Wilton at the Calgary Sun   For the latest news and tour dates for David James and Big River visit the Johnny Cash Tribute Website.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haE_tsycM3A

Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner and singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition; he has a vast musical vision. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape.

Alex then went to study electric and upright bass and touring and recording nationally and internationally. In 1999, Alex moved to Victoria, BC where he recorded an album titled Morumba Cubana alongside his twin brother Adonis, as The Puentes Brothers. Since then Cuba has gone on to record six solo albums which have won several Juno’s and multiple Latin Grammy Awards.
