    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.

    Goffee says his tribute, “Sprang from my appreciation and love, not only for the music of Johnny Cash but for the man himself. A champion of the underdog, a voice for those who often have none, an ‘outlaw’ before it became fashionable. If you come away from this presentation with a better understanding of who Johnny Cash is, I will have succeeded in my vision for this endeavor.”

    Goffee was recently written up in two books about celebrities. "Daily Doubles, Celebrity Impersonators" by C J Morgan and Jack Bullard, who are also tribute artists. And "Behind The Microphone" by Lew Dobbins, a personal history of country music.
