Back in Black -- Gazette.Net


The music of Johnny Cash, one of country music’s original “outlaws,” spanned generations. For almost 50 years, the “Man in Black,” entertained folks on the radio, with his own TV show, and even in the movies. It’s small wonder people today still not only listen to his music, but idolize him as well.

Cold Hard Cash, the DC-area Cash tribute band, will be performing at New Deal Cafe on Friday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. CHC, led by Rob Petrie on vocals, Danny Stellabotte on guitar, Geff King on bass and Mark Lucas playing drums, pride themselves on not being a flashy cover band. They work hard to make sure the music you hear is just as it was when it was performed by Cash, or Buck Owens, or Merle Haggard. They do tend to mix it up from time to time.

There is no cost to see the show, however, the band strongly recommends calling ahead for reservations. For more information, visit or call 301-474-5642.
