Portland’s original Johnny Cash tribute band… since 2004…. Back at the Sandune Pub for a night of “Cash Classics”
Counterfeit Cash is our loving tribute to the incomparable legacy of Johnny Cash and his musical family. What began in 2004 as an acoustic duo performing Johnny’s landmark 1994 album, American Recordings, has gradually developed into a tight, rocking ensemble (two guitars, bass, and drums), with a repertoire of more than 70 Cash (and Carter) classics — from 1950s Sun Studio hits like Folsom Prison Blues and Cry Cry Cry, to 60s and 70s favorites like Ring of Fire and Man in Black, all the way to turn-of-the-century covers like Hurt, Personal Jesus, and The Mercy Seat. What really sets Counterfeit Cash apart from the growing pack of Cash cover bands is the vivacious and talented Jen FitzPatrick, who brings a sweet, sassy swagger to Johnny-and-June duets, as well as numerous June Carter tunes.
