David James & Big River Tribute to Johnny Cash / Waylon Jennings @ Horizon Stage Spruce Grove
Oct 23 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
David James & Big River Tribute to Johnny Cash / Waylon Jennings @ Horizon Stage Spruce Grove | Spruce Grove | Alberta | Canada

David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S.
James and his band look and sound like the legacy of the Man in Black, and when they step on stage, they live it. From the way Cash holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musician lives again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash.”
The professionalism of the musicians on and off stage is a testament to the memory of Cash that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River. The extensive catalogue of songs, from classics like Walk the Line, Get Rhythm and Boy Named Sue, to newer hits like Rusty Cage and Hurt, attracts audiences of young and old alike to relive the music of Johnny Cash.
“It’s not only about the voice,” James said. “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.”
James is succeeding.
According to Lisa Wilton at the Calgary Sun, “James does his best to look the part – black is the primary colour from his hair down to his shoes – but it’s his uncanny vocal similarity to Cash that is most impressive. Even when he talks, James has the singer’s low rumble down pat.”
The Man in Black might be gone, but David James and Big River are fulfilling the continuing demand for his music and keeping the memory of the legend alive in the hearts and minds of fans everywhere.

The Comic Strippers

Comedy and Improvisation – Limited Seats Available

A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) perform a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy… but it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes, they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them.

Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour – so ladies, these comedians are sure to make your head explode. As for all you men – don’t worry, this is definitely a parody. Some of the performers have ‘Comedy Bodies’ – and they will make you look good by comparison.

Semi-undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic StrippersExternal take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.

A show for all genders… 18+ only, mature content

Tickets

$35 for adults. $30 for students and seniors 65+.
