Terry Lee Goffee has been a Johnny Cash fan since he was 8 years old. His long-running admiration for the music and the man is apparent in his performance as Cash in “The Ultimate Tribute to Johnny Cash,” brought by Crossings to the Zumbrota State Theatre on Fri, June 28, at 8 p.m.
Goffee does more than play the music or “impersonate” Cash: like an actor in a play, he becomes his character from the moment he walks on stage until the end of the show. He plays the music so well audiences and reviewers rave. He plays the man so well, he was chosen to provide the moves for a Cash character on the Guitar Hero 5 video game.
He looks like Cash. He sounds like Cash. He moves like Cash--Nobody does Johnny Cash like Terry Lee Goffee.
Audiences will revel in 34 Cash songs, including classic such as “A Boy Named Sue,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” “I Walk The Line,” “Ring Of Fire, “Folsom Prison Blues,” and “Hurt.”(more…)
