    “John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic singer-songwriter of the 80’s folk scene. Hailing from New Jersey, but forged in the Greenwich Village Fast Folk scene, he honed his craft and persona into an unmistakable image. The shy, wry, insightful, and yes, sensitive singer-songwriter has been copied and parodied. But the old coat he wove still fits, and still suits him well. The old songs ring as true as they ever did, and the new ones are just as good.”     John Gorka website

    Layne Yost website

    "The music of John Denver is timeless and well known. The "Tribute to the Music of John Denver" by the Layne Yost Group is a faithful performance of songs and stories that capture and pay homage to the music and the man. A wonderful show that will take you back and remind you of simple things that remain true."

    Jon Shimoda on bass and Carol McDowall on fiddle accompany Yost’s pure vocals and guitar playing in this homage to the music and the man. They capture the simple soul of Denver's music. Woven within the music are stories that give insight into Denver's life and legacy.

    Denver is best known for songs like, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Annie’s Song,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” along with other hits. A common theme in his lyrics was his enjoyment of the natural world. He was one of the most popular and best-selling acoustic artists of the 1970s, and his songs were hits on several charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, country and western, and adult contemporary. He earned four platinum albums and 12 gold albums during his career.[read more…]

    He looks like Cash. He sounds like Cash. He moves like Cash. Nobody does Johnny Cash like Terry Lee Goffee!

    Terry Lee Goffee "World's Premier" Johnny Cash Tribute

    Ticket Link

    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 that audiences and reviewers rave. He plays the man so well, that he was chosen to provide the moves for a Cash character on the Guitar Hero 5 video game.

    Cash – The Man in Black – is widely considered one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century. His music is primarily thought of as country, but his deep bass-baritone voice lent itself equally well to the genres of rock and roll, blues, folk, rockabilly, and gospel.[read more…]
