David Stone: The Johnny Cash Experience

Why book David Stone: The Johnny Cash Experience?

"DAVID STONE: The Johnny Cash Experience" is a Broadway quality tribute show that plays predominantly to a new generation of fans too young to have known the real thing in its zenith. Like the original BEATLEMANIA, the music and history of the legend is conveyed with dignity. We feature note-for-note authenticity, authentic costumes and instruments, and June Carter.

INCREDIBLE!!!!! David Stone and his band sound exactly like the original.Clear,crisp,recognizable note for note authenticity!!!! I simply couldn't believe my eyes and ears!!! I've seen both Johnny Cash and David Stone in concert.....close your eyes and you'd have a hard time telling the difference!!

What a great show! Not only was the music wonderful, but I also enjoyed the commentary between songs. The concert was at the White Clay Creek State Park, and had been rained out of its original date. The people clamored to reschedule the show, for good reason. I would definitely see The Johnny Cash Experience again.

Review by Diane M.

What a performance! One of the best I have ever seen and didn't want the evening to end. It was very obvious that they truly enjoyed entertaining the crowd and even came off the stage and sang to the people sitting on the ground. The most impressive gesture was when David (Johnny) took time to seek out a woman sitting in a wheelchair and squeezed her hand in compassionate manner. My husband and I both started clapping, as we know how much that must have meant to her, as we, too, had a son in a wheelchair and it was very thoughtful that he took the time to care. David then came over to me, shook my hand and sang right in front of me. June and Johnny complimented each other very well as they sang and danced together. I have never been one to join the crowd and get up and dance, but his music and singing had me up on my feet dancing with the rest of them. Johnny and June stayed after the show to make sure all autographs had been signed and would not leave until they were. This experience was one of the best times I've had in a long time and thanks for the wonderful memory. What an impression he made on us. Other entertainers would be wise to take lessons from them. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Great show.

Review by Steve C.

The show was great. Most notably, the song list (approx. 26-27 songs)was up tempo and high energy. The band was as good or better than the real thing and sounded like they've been performing Cash songs for years. David Stone does a nice job of portraying JC and incorporates the same sense of humor that JC had. The highlites of the show were the performing of the songs "Orange Blossom Special" featuring the harmonica, and "Get Rhythm". The duets with Mia Johnson were great as well. I took my dad to see this show and he can't stop talking about it. He's a JC diehard. It's an experience he and I will never forget. Thanks for the treat and please come back.

Overview

Welcome to our show, DAVID STONE: The Johnny Cash Experience!

We cover early Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash & June Carter, and the Folsom Prison Concert era. We are note-for-note authentic, complete with authentic costumes and instruments, and doing for Johnny Cash what BEATLEMANIA has done for the Beatles -- offer an experience as close to the real thing as possible, for audiences who never got a chance to see it. We are a Broadway quality show, presented with dignity, and without cheap impersonation.

On request of the State of California, our show played a commemorative concert at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 2009, 40 years to the day of Johnny Cash’s historic performance at that facility. We are the only Johnny Cash Tribute Show in the world that has ever played to one of Johnny Cash’s notorious prison audiences, recording a live album in the process.

We offer a full band show, a "Johnny & June Duet" show, and a "Johnny Cash Un-Plugged" Show.

Repeated sellouts and packed houses can't be wrong. I'd like to invite you to our website: www.maninblackshow.com. Feel free to listen to our sound clips, view our changing video selections, and visit our reviews section to see what people are saying about us.

If our record of performance attendance and our reviews are any indication, our show would be a great success for you. Call 484-358-6873.
