July 22, the Remnants of Rock

Rock and Roll was born in the late 1950s, and by the end of the 1960s, the music had produced such legends as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown and the Memphis sound. The consensus among historians is that the greatest popular music of all time was created during this ten-year period. Unquestionably, the music defined a generation and continues to be embraced by younger generations. For example, The Beatles sold approximately 70 million albums between 1963-69, but have since sold over 2.3 billion albums.

     The Remnants of Rock is composed of original band members that started out together in 1968, with the addition of the current keyboard player. The band’s goal is to successfully recreate the music of the 1960s as authentically as possible. Imagine walking into the student union for the homecoming dance on any college campus during the years 1965-1969 and hearing the best dance band you’ve ever heard! Close your eyes and think back, because this is the performance The Remnants will deliver. The band plays only the top hits from 1959-1969 – which is often called the sweet spot of the era.

An inspiring, highly acclaimed one man musical comedy about the most fascinating character to ever ride across the pages of history, the American Cowboy.

Joe Texas dispels the rumor the cowboy is a dying breed. Through songs, stories and poems, Joe will share the true story of the cowboy not the Hollywood version.

It is a show not to be missed! Joe sings, twirls a rope, plays harmonica, banjo, guitar and throws in a few dance steps. His expressions have been compared to the legendary comic, Red Skelton, his wit to Will Rogers and his soulful vocal delivery is pure joy to the ear.

September 22, Cash & Cline, Bennie Wheels and Walking’ the Line

Take a journey back to when Country Music and its Artists seemed a little more true and genuine.  THE CASH AND CLINE SHOW brings together a tribute to two of the most influential and legendary country artists of all time… JOHNNY CASH and PATSY CLINE!  Bennie Wheels (Johnny Cash) is referred by many to be the #1 tribute to Cash working today.  With his easy going nature, deep bass-baritone vocals and commanding stage presence, Bennie brings back the image and spirit of The Man in Black in his Folsum Prison prime!  For over 11 years, Bennie Wheels has taken his hit tribute show, “Walkin’ The Line” across the country, and has also worked in many other multi-artist “Legends” type productions. 

Lisa Irion is a seasoned character actress, and two time international award winning tribute artist, and is best known for her Tribute to Cher.  She’s been filmed for broadcast by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Rachel Ray Show, Lifetime TV, and British television.  Lisa has been working steadily since 2003 in the tribute industry, and added a Tribute to Patsy Cline in 2010 as part of a Legends style show.  She developed a full scale tribute show, “Crazy for Cline” in 2015, and a year later starred in the musical, “Always, Patsy Cline” to sold out houses in Lafayette, Louisiana.  Her acting experience allows her to portray Patsy as Patsy with the utmost respect, and her attention to details of Patsy’s iconic vocal stylings, mannerisms, persona, and costuming sets her apart from many other tributes. 

THE CASH AND CLINE SHOW is backed by the incomparable WALKIN’ THE LINE tribute band, a group of true professionals who pride themselves on performing the music the way you love and remember it.  CASH AND CLINE will put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye, and memories of a better time of music in your heart!
