Description

Jimmie Ray and Cyndy Cantrell bring the Man In Black, Johnny Cash, and his lovely wife, June Carter Cash, back to the stage at Piper's Opera House on Friday, Sept. 1 and Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, at Piper's Opera House, 12 North B St., Virginia City NV. This is a two-day event, with a concert on Friday for $25. Saturday's show will include Clint Ingbretson as Elvis Presley. Saturday's show is $30 and tickets for that show on line at: www.johnnyandelvis.eventbrite.com

In 2003 the world has lost both Johnny Cash and the beloved June Carter Cash. On September 12, 2003 American roots legend Johnny Cash passed away; preceded by June by only four months. Since their passing millions more enchanted listeners have been added to their fan base as evidenced by record setting sales of CD’s, videos and the popularity of the movie Walk the Line.

The show opens with Jimmie Ray’s original song, “Black Train” which moves the audience forward a musical journey back in time. Something magical takes place when the first notes of "Folsom Prison Blues" are heard and Jimmie begins, "I hear the train a comin'...." Cyndi delivers a heart rending version of June singing, "Take the ribbon from my hair…” Together, Jimmie and Cyndi kick into the always crowd pleasing: "We got married in a fever...." This Tribute appeals to audiences of all ages.

As the show progresses audiences are taken back in time where they experience what they might have seen, felt or heard during an actual Johnny & June concert of the past. There is just something everyone loves about Johnny Cash - The Music, The Man, The Memories and this tribute. This show is filled with the ageless music of Johnny and June and so much more. It is a musical journey from Johnny’s days in the Arkansas cotton fields up through and including the very last song he wrote and recorded, Like the 309. Other hits such as Ring of Fire and so many more will be performed during this show; covering six decades of their career.

Jimmie Ray’s Tribute to Johnny Cash has been presented at a variety of showrooms, theaters and Performing Art Centers, with nine years of appearances on the world famous Fremont Experience of Las Vegas, the Yuma Territorial Prison, NASCAR & NFR Events, Festivals and Fairs and much more. In many cases their shows have been sold out.

This show is presented by Virginia City VFW Post 8071 and will benefit their ongoing service to veterans in Northern Nevada and benefits Piper's Opera House Programs.
