Rusty Evans & Ring of Fire
Rockabilly Hall of Famer, RUSTY EVANS and his band have been burning up the California festival circuit (Actually, if you'll look at our schedule we've been burning back and forth across the whole U. S. of A. Need to update this blurb.) with his rollicking tribute to country music icon Johnny Cash. With a voice of rolling thunder and a spirit like gentle rain RUSTY has been wowing audiences from Nashville to San Francisco with his stunning tribute to the "MAN IN BLACK". His weighted drawl doles out molasses-coated syllables, putting an upbeat spin on less than optimistic situations. Lending his own touch to world famous songs such as "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues" Rusty honors the Man in Black with soulful honesty and exuberance..... Driving rhythms on his amplified acoustic Martin guitar are augmented by his energetic three-piece band. A hot rockin' lead guitar, driving bass and drums create the powerful and irresistible JOHNNY CASH signature sound, a pulse that drives folks right to the dance floor. People often comment on how much Rusty actually looks like the Man in Black. He's honored by the compliment and destined to continue in the spirit of the country music legend he holds in such high regard. .... When asked how he first came to sing with such conviction the songs of JOHNNY CASH, Rusty replies, "I met the Man in Black in the 1960's and was totally inspired, not to mention that Bob Dylan once told me long ago I sounded like Cash." Early musical endeavors include performing on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, touring with the New Christy Minstrels, working with renowned producer Phil Spector and producing/recording for CBS, Reprise and Folkway records..... Rusty recently performed at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium in a tribute to legendary country singer Kitty Wells. As a member of Western Fairs Association, Rusty and Ring of Fire have performed at California fairs such as Glenn and Marin County and in Oregon at the Klamath County Fair. Rusty has also taken his highly acclaimed show to the Hollywood Casino in Shreveport,
