Walking the Line is the most authentic sounding and visual performance of the music of Johnny Cash, playing the most loved hits and some rare gems of Johnny Cash while recreating the look, feel and flow of Johnny Cash concerts. Walking the Line takes you on a musical journey that has become the Johnny Cash Legacy by performing material from every decade of Cash's legendary career. Walking the line is not just a band, it is a performance on par with a broadway production. Essentially it is a show! Vintage costumes, period accurate instruments and microphones. It is the complete package and recreation of the golden years of the Johnny Cash show.
The band has won numerous tribute contests and awards and in 2011 was picked as the best tribute show in the country.
Playing the part of Johnny Cash is Thomas Michael Cavanagh's. Cavanagh's voice, look and actions don't just replicate Johnny Cash, it is Johanny Cash. The seven piece band comes complete with three Carter Sisters providing the harmonies and three of Long Island's most gifted musicians.
If you love the music of Johnny Cash but never got to see him live, this is as close as a fan can get. And if you were lucky enough to see Cash live, you'll appreciate Walking the Line all the more when you see and hear this most accurate recreation.
