Cash’d Out with Jenni Dale Lord
“Some people are impressionists. These guys leave an impression.” – Bill Miller, owner of JohnnyCash.com
Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson vocals, George Bernardo drums, and Stephen Rey bass), a San Diego based band, channels Johnny Cash in as close a manner to the real thing as it gets. After eleven years, hundreds of thousands of miles on the road, fans continuously tell the group how grateful they are that Cash’d Out carries the torch of the Johnny Cash Show.
Besides music critics anointing Cash’d Out the “next best thing to Johnny Cash” the highlights have been many: W.S. Holland, Cash’s longtime drummer, has sat in with Cash’d Out; front man, Douglas Benson, has played Johnny’s cherry sunburst Guild guitar (courtesy of Mr.Miller); “Cindy Cash came to a show and was moved to give me a glass locket that was her father’s,” explains Benson; and longtime Cash manager Lou Robin has also been to several Cash’d Out shows, and claimed that if he closed it eyes it was like “going back in time.”
The band’s live shows respectfully reference the early sounds of Johnny Cash, combined with the energy of the classic multi-platinum live recordings from Folsom Prison and San Quentin. The group’s genuine love (and authentic recreation) of Johnny Cash’s music and its universal appeal fans of all ages makes each Cash’d Out show a must-see event.
