“Garner and the Cash Tribute Band give concertgoers their money’s worth.  This act is seasoned enough to go anywhere and will not disappoint the people who wish to resurrect that classic Johnny Cash voice and rhythm.”

Gene Beley, Former Reporter, Ventura Star Free Press. Gene Beley attended Johnny Cash’s historic concert at Folsom Prison in 1968. Hear Beley’s interview and his personal recordings from the prison show on NPR’s “All Things Considered” here.

“We have had the pleasure of presenting James Garner and his CASH TRIBUTE numerous times at several different venues and events, and we plan on working with him as often as possible in the future. Not only is James – and his entire band – professional, conscientious, and reliable…they are the nicest guys in the business, always respectful to staff, crew and, of course, the audience.

And the show! These guys don’t just sing Johnny Cash songs. They are entertainers. They put on a polished, smooth, impressive show every time they take the stage. This is not a Johnny Cash “Tribute Show”, this is a personal experience with James Garner – his presence, his joy, and his passion fill the stage with a new energy for the songs and music which have been part of another generation.

Audiences may enter the theatre as Johnny Cash fans, but they leave as James Garner fans. We certainly are.”

Steven Shore & Samantha Samuels, Esses Productions

“Cash Tribute is outstanding! Our guests enjoy country music and this event brought 800 plus guests here for a private party; we received many positive comments from our audience regarding their performance. The musical selection was a great assortment of Cash songs, the vocal quality of James Garner was impressive and the musicians were talented and friendly. They were approachable and inviting to the audience. They are definitely worth having at your venue and I highly recommend this group, a top choice!”

“The Cash Tribute Show at the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre was amazing! If you shut your eyes and listened you could swear it was Johnny Cash singing right there in front of you. Don’t keep them closed for too long though as lead vocalist James Garner is a pleasure to watch! His elegant stage presence pays an excellent homage to the iconic “Man in Black.” The Cash Tribute show will please music lovers of all ages, but especially those of us who grew up listening to the man himself! This show is not to be missed.”

Donna Perry, KUIC Radio

“The Cash Tribute Show is a fantastic event.  We decided to have a Johnny Cash Tribute night in conjunction with one of our baseball games during the 2012 season.  We realized the event would not be complete without live music and we were blown away at how good the Cash Tribute Show was.  It exceeded all of our expectations in quality of the music, response from our patrons, and the interactions with James and his band.  The music is fantastic and the fact that James was willing to integrate himself into our presentation was awesome.  I never heard Johnny Cash sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame – but myself and the 4,000+ other people in attendance loved it!”

Pat Filippone, President, Stockton Ports

“Cash Tribute was a terrific event. We had around 3,500 in the audience and they loved it. James Garner has poise, stage presence beyond his years. I can’t imagine anyone hiring the band to be anything but thrilled with the results. We don’t hire the same bands in consecutive years, but if we did, we would hire him in a heartbeat. The band arrived when they said, were very professional, dealt well with our sound tech, so they get an A+ from Los Gatos.”

Valerie Hopkins, Los Gatos Arts Commission

“The Cash Tribute concert was the highlight of our summer concert series at Imagination Theater! James Garner and his band delivered an outstanding and heartfelt tribute to Johnny Cash, complete with interesting anecdotes and stories from Cash’s early and later years that many of us had never heard before. Jim’s voice and the music were so true to Johnny’s style. The audience was enthralled from beginning to end! Not only are these talented and dedicated musicians, they are the most down-to-earth and sincere people. Johnny and June would be so pleased and proud!”

Lanny & Tish Langston and Peter & Linda Wolfe, Imagination Theater

“Very professional and easy to work with. The quality of the band was great…they sounded as advertised and I was very pleased. We plan to use them again. Just very nice, professional musicians!”

Mike Testa, Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau

“Cash Tribute is terrific! They arrived early on a rainy afternoon for our outdoor concert. Although rain threatened and we had no indoor option, this professional band gave a fantastic show. Our guests gave them rave reviews and didn’t leave even when the downpour finally came in the middle of the final song! True musicians from first to last, every instrument and vocal was excellent. They are genuine and extremely talented, well mannered, and lots of fun. We plan to have this band return – on a clear and starlit summer evening!”

Joni Gerking, Groveland Hotel

“This is a fabulous band and show. I used them for a company party and everyone was impressed. They are extremely professional and were at the venue and setup and ready to play before guests arrived. We all had a great time and I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them if you want a fun and unique event.”

Kay Lavin, European Sleep Works

“If you are a true lover of country music, this is the band for you. They are highly professional and almost ‘Hollywood’ in their approach to entertainment. It is not your typical ‘variety’ band – it is a highly fine-tuned and professionally produced show. Everything from equipment to talent, to lights, to the appearance of their charming lead singer is sure to impress the most discriminating critic. I highly recommend this group of musicians and hope to work with them again.”

Yelena Wells, Atherton

“I wanted to let you all know how much everyone at our Pleasanton Harvest Festival enjoyed your shows this past weekend. Our exhibitors and our attendees kept coming by the show office to let us know how great the band is and to see if you would be at other shows. Not only are you great performers and put on a great show, more importantly you are all really nice people.”
