Come listen and dance to Rockabilly Hall of Famer, Rusty Evans and his band Ring of Fire. Proceeds for this event benefit the Fairfax Food Pantry.
Rusty Evans has been burning up the California festival circuit with his rollicking tribute to country music icon Johnny Cash.
With a voice of rolling thunder and a spirit like gentle rain Rusty has been wowing audiences from Nashville to San Francisco with his stunning tribute to the "Man In Black". His weighted drawl doles out molasses-coated syllables, putting an upbeat spin on less than optimistic situations. Lending his own touch to world famous songs Rusty honors the Man in Black with soulful honesty and exuberance.
Driving rhythms on his amplified acoustic Martin guitar are augmented by his energetic three-piece band Ring of Fire. A hot rockin' lead guitar, driving bass and drums create the powerful and irresistible Johnny Cash signature sound, a pulse that drives folks right to the dance floor. People often comment on how much Rusty actually looks like the Man in Black. He's honored by the compliment and destined to continue in the spirit of the country music legend he holds in such high regard.
When asked how he first came to sing with such conviction the songs of Johnny Cash, Rusty replies, "I met the Man in Black in the 1960's and was totally inspired, not to mention that Bob Dylan once told me long ago I sounded like Cash."
Early musical endeavors include performing on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, touring with the New Christy Minstrels, working with renowned producer Phil Spector and producing/recording for CBS, Reprise and Folkway records.
Rusty has performed for many Las Vegas and Native American Casinos, Performing Arts Centers, fairs, festivals, corporate events, private parties, and rodeos all over the world.
