"Great vocals, a fiddle, man these guys really got it!"
“The Church of Cash is Minnesota's newest and freshest Tribute to Johnny Cash. Jayder Kalk, singer and guitar player for the band, recently moved to Minneapolis after successfully performing the Cash show around the Hawaiian islands for the past three years. Assembling a terrific lineup of musicians, Jayder has already scored a house gig at the Whiskey Junction and has performed all summer long. With an upright bass and fiddle, Church of Cash will be a show worth seeing each Tuesday night at Whiskey Junction. ”
“Go, Johnny, Go!!!! Cash is a hero in American music for songs like "Ring of Fire," loved by roots-rockers and country afficionados alike. "I grew up listening to Johnny Cash with my father. I remember he had such a deep voice that I'd be in awe of his earth-rumbling range. My father fought in the Vietnam War, and he'd sing 'Cotton Fields Back Home' and 'The Ballad of Ira Hayes' to me," says guitarist/singer Jayder Kalk, who's promoting and performing in the Church of Cash Show this week. The show, set in Chinatown at O'Toole's Pub, is a tribute to Cash, featuring a rockin' four-piece band that includes Lisa Gomes of Irish Hearts. "The Church of Cash is a great opportunity for people to celebrate the music of Johnny Cash. I really wanted to carry on the tradition of American story telling through songs," explains Kalk. "I've always loved the opportunity to play music, and for years, people have been telling me that I sound incredibly like the man himself."”
