The music and spirit of the man in black is coming to Sneaky’s Pub in Elkford tonight, April 14.

The Big River, B.C. based Johnny Cash tribute band, said that their main purpose is to present the recordings of Johnny Cash in the style and with the sound of Johnny Cash himself.

Dave Pittet who is “Almost Johnny Cash,” said he and the rest of the band strive to create an authentic “Man in Black” show – not just with the words and music, but with the full experience.

“It’s not only about the voice,” said Dave. “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.”

The Province newspaper said, “[Pittet] employs a full band, including Bonnie Kilroe as June Carter Cash, and has J.R.’s moves down, from the sweeping guitar spins to the odd angle of the head. And yes, he does sound like Cash, from Folsom Prison Blues to Hurt.”
