When you hear the familiar ‘boom-chicka-boom’ of the freight train clacking in the distance, and the sound of a baritone voice talking to your soul, then you know that the BIG RIVER is still flowing. JRFM and Rock.It Boy Entertainment are proud to present BIG RIVER – A Tribute To The man In Black in concert on Thursday, August 19th in The RedBar Lounge at the Starlight Casino in New Westminster.  Tickets go on sale on Saturday, June 26th for $30 (plus Facility Fee and Service Charges) at www.ticketweb.ca and Casino Guest Services. With a career spanning fifty years, the rockabilly pioneer, country legend and American poet Johnny Cash left his mark upon many millions of fans.  Among them are four western Canadian musicians who ware driven to replicate his sounds, songs and recordings in a magnificent tribute entitled BIG RIVER – A Tribute To The man In Black. Fronted by Dave Pittet, BIG RIVER goes all the way in their shows, not content to just ‘imitate’ but  rather to bring the audience past the ‘cover songs’ and into the world of ‘The Man In Black.’  Johnny Cash once said, “You know, performance is communicating. You’ve got to communicate.   You’ve got a song you’re singing from your gut; you want that audience to feel it in their gut.”  Big River continues to entertain with the same principles. “It’s not only about the voice” says Dave. “It’s about living and breathing the man. His posture, his mannerisms, his moves, and his quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself”.  When you hear that familiar, mighty voice, those legendary, deep, dark tones, just close your eyes and dare to compare. The comparison almost becomes a unison. Even the most discerning of Johnny Cash fans concede that Dave’s homage to one of the worlds greatest ever icons is profoundly believable. JRFM and Rock.It Boy Entertainment are pleased to present BIG RIVER – A Tribute To The man In Black in concert on Thursday, August 19th in The RedBar Lounge at the Starlight Casino, located at 350 Gifford Street in New Westminster (604 777 2946).  Tickets go on sale on Saturday, June 26th for $30 (plus Facility Fees and Service cCarges) at Casino Guest Services and from TicketWeb (online at www.ticketweb.ca).  Doors open at 7PM.  Show at 8PM.  Directions are available at www.starlightcasino.ca.
