Ross Emery Entertainment and Cindy Cash bring the annual homage to the "Man in Black" back to the Johnny Cash's old stomping grounds on Father's Day Weekend
One of the largest tribute concerts on the West Coast returns in full swing in 2014 as "A Tribute to the Music of Johnny Cash" takes over the grassy fields at the beachfront Ventura County Fairgrounds on Father's Day weekend. The sixth annual event will feature popular outlaw country, rockabilly, bluegrass and Johnny Cash tribute bands, plus a pin-up girl pageant, hot rods, custom cars and motorcycles, Johnny Cash memorabilia, food & beverage, a kid's corral and scores of vendors with unique offerings and collectibles.
While the full lineup is still being developed, several musical acts have been confirmed, including country music maverick Dale Watson; preeminent San Diego blues/rockabilly outfit The Paladins; The Americans, a Los Angeles-based original Americana band who recently appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman; L.A. native, current Nashville resident and celebrated multi-instrumentalist James Intveld; and the highly energized American music-makers Snake Oil Salesmen. More bands will be added to the lineup in the near future, and the headlining act will be announced on May 5, 2014.
