Band in Black is great! Family-friendly, fun, hard-working band that performs all the songs you remember! Makes you want to dance. They have some of their own songs along the same genre that are great.
We used The Band in Black for a huge event we did recently and they were awesome! They were on time, professional and so helpful. Most importantly, they had the crowd dancing and singing along. Very upbeat and tons of fun! We will definitely hire them again!
The Band in Black were great! They provided the perfect music for our outdoor party. We received so many compliments from our guests about the band. The band members were also very accommodating and super friendly. We will definitely use them again. I would recommend them to anybody who wants a cool Johnny Cash tribute band!
Price Range: Negotiate per Event
Rising out of the sweltering heat of Austin, Texas, The Band in Black originally burst on the scene back in 2004 as a Johnny Cash Tribute band. The Band in Black fuses boot-stompin countrified original music with road-seasoned twangy guitar rhythms and just a touch of Southern style. As well as including the rock covers that Cash recorded in later years, The Band in Black injects Delta Swamp Bottom boogie while balancing lead vocalist Jason Birdwell's homespun melodies to evoke their most satisfying brand of musical gumbo to date. With standout original tracks such as "I'm Goin to Texas" and "City Lights", look for The Band in Black in the country-rock landscape for years to come. They are an essential addition to any music lover's library.
