A toe tappin', knee slappin' good lovin' tribute to Johnny Cash and June Carter-Cash. Doug Thoms and Kyrst Hogan have crafted a nostalgic and heartfelt experience of live acoustic music and storytelling that's fun for everyone. Featuring Johnny Cash's hit songs and a few rare cuts from all eras, plus Johnny and June's famous duets, Carter Family favorites, a bit of June's infamous comedy and even a touch of gospel. Simple set-up and basic tech requirements but a big stage presence make this duo a perfect entertainment choice for venues and events of all shapes and sizes.

Our duo act brings you a dynamic acoustic experience featuring Doug on Johnny's vocals and guitar, and Kyrst on June's vocals, autoharp, banjo, harmonica, and percussion. (A three piece backing band can be added for a bigger sound.)

 

Our full-length theatrical production: JOHNNY & JUNE - A toe-tappin' musical love story is filled with storytelling, song and projected visuals for theatres, cabaret rooms and special events.


This is the latest project of these award-winning professional entertainers, currently based in the Vancouver BC area, and available to travel.

(*Legally able to work in both USA and Canada!*)

TESTIMONIALS:

"Doug (Johnny) and Kyrst (June)  don’t just sing Johnny Cash songs. They are entertainers. They put on a polished, smooth, impressive show every time they take the stage. This is not a Johnny Cash “Tribute Show”, this is a personal experience with Kyrst and Doug. Their passion fills the stage with a new energy for the songs and music which have been part of another generation. Audiences may enter the theatre as Johnny Cash fans, but they leave as Doug and Kyrst Fans."
- Dan Heerts, Marie W. Heider Centre for the Arts

"Thank you guys for the wonderful night! Our only complaint was that everyone wanted MORE of you two :)"
- Marie Marineau, Duke's Country Pub

"This is an authentic "first couple of Country" experience! I laughed out loud, sang along and moved my feet the entire show! Thouroughly entertaining. What a great time!
- Allison Paul, Audience member

"A toe-tapping, hand clapping great time. Two voices on one stage singing music that touches your soul and leaves you wanting more!
