"You're the best we've ever seen! In fact, you sound more like Johnny Cash than J.R. did at times!"
                            ---members of Johnny Cash's Calif family, show in Simi Valley, CA

At 6'5" tall and slender, dressed in all black, with that long black coat, dark hair piled high and a black acoustic guitar slung over his shoulder, he's the definitive image of Johnny Cash. And when he steps to the mic and opens his mouth to sing, that lush baritone, story-telling voice leaves no doubt...this is as close as it's ever going to get to the real thing. Steve Waddington channels Johnny Cash in his show! "He sounds exactly like J.R. in his prime". And Steve not only plays guitar like Johnny did, he understands the reasons WHY Johnny played that way...capo on the first fret, alternately strumming the strings at the sound hole and up the finger board, holding the guitar up to ear level. All the classic Cash moves! It all comes together to make this the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute yet! And when joined by Susan Ritter singing "June", especially on their duet/medley of "Jackson/Big Mouth Woman", the fun kicks into high gear. "You don't even have to LIKE country music to LOVE Johnny Cash".  The band excels at re-creating the "elegant simplicity" of the Sun studio recordings at it's core, and adds elements of the bigger sound from the Johnny Cash TV show and specials.
