David James & Big River create authentic tribute
to the Man in Black
NANAIMO, B.C. - David James and Big River are often described as one of the
most authentic Johnny Cash tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans
agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and
small across Canada and the U.S.
James and his band – Todd Sacerty on bass, Duncan Symonds on guitar and
pedal steel, and Colin Stevenson on drums – look and sound like the legacy of
the Man in Black, and when they step on stage, they live it. From the way Cash
holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musician lives
again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash.”
The professionalism of the musicians on and off stage is a testament to the
memory of Cash that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.

of young and old alike to relive the music of Johnny Cash.
James has dedicated himself to recreating an authentic tribute to Cash, focusing

the crowd, whether it’s an intimate show in a high-end casino or an outdoor
festival like the Calgary Stampede or the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in
