On Friday, the P.A. Lions Club presents Cash Back at 7 p.m.
Cash Back performs the music of Johnny Cash ranging from the hits of the ’50s to the ’90s including gospel. They attempt to keep the Cash sound as authentic as possible while adding their own flavour to the mix.
Cash Back draws from a large repertoire of songs either written and/or performed by Cash, including the June Carter Cash duets. They also pay tribute to the music of the Carter Family who greatly influenced the life of Johnny Cash. Cash Back has been touring with this show, which has been met with great enthusiasm, since 2004.
The tribute show that Cash Back delivers demonstrates the group’s genuine love for Johnny Cash’s music and has wide audience appeal.
