Happy Days Records presented "60 Years of Johnny Cash" at The Dunstan Playhouse on November 14th. The music began back on September 1st 1954 when Cash walked into the recording studio in Memphis, produced 'Hey Porter' and walked out having cut a record that would define its own genre of music and with that, a legend was born.
The band features award-winning vocalist Daniel Thompson accompanied by Stuie French on guitar and Artie Taylor on double bass. They formed in 2009 as a one off tribute to The Man in Black but gained the attention of the Harbour Agency and Happy Days Records and before they knew it they had a tour booked for 2012.
Since then they have been touring the world celebrating the iconic music of Johnny Cash. This show at Dunstan Playhouse featured all your favourite hits including 'A Boy Named Sue', 'We'll Meet Again', 'Riders in the Sky' and more.
It featured the movie soundtrack hit 'I Walk the Line' and a beautiful rendition of 'If I We're a Carpenter', accompanied by a well-known female country singer from the Yorke Peninsula.
When the show came to an end the audience cheered for an encore and out they came. The said 'What have we forgotten?' One audience member said 'Fire', and they said 'Don't scream fire in a theatre'. Then they continued with 'The Ring of Fire'. Thompson is Cash reincarnated and with the music alive, he lives on forever.
