SOME CHANGES FOR 2022
This year is already turning out to be very different in many ways. Theatres are open again, but many are not taking on new shows as they struggle to reschedule postponed shows from 2020 and 2021. For this reason, it looks like Cash Revisited may not be able to make a full return to regular theatre performances until 2023. We're still working on it, but shows will be few and far between in 2022, so make sure you come and see us if we turn up anywhere near you. 

In the meantime, life goes on. In January our calendar looked like a snow storm but, just a couple of weeks later, we're now struggling to fit everything in. 
We have two Cash Revisited shows in March. On the 5th we play the Spa Pavilion in Felixstowe, and on the 19th, Exmouth Pavilion. Rick has two solo shows as Johnny Cash coming up.  One in his hometown of Portsmouth on April 2nd, and then on April 16th, he'll be performing in Southend alongside Dave Collison as Roy Orbison and Scott Elvis as...well, Elvis Presley. No prizes for guessing. These guys are both great and it promises to be a fun night. Full details for all of these dates are available on our Calendar, and also on Facebook.

Also during February and March, Rick McKay will be playing Drums in "Patsy Cline & Friends" and Double Bass with Spencer Jordan's Holly tribute, "I Can't Believe It's Not Buddy", which is always fun. 

From the end of April until 10th July, Rick will be appearing in The Everly Brothers story "Walk Right Back" which will be touring the UK extensively. He'll be playing two roles, as Floyd "Lightning" Chance, the bassist who played on so many of the Everly's early hits, and will also be appearing as Johnny Cash. Until then, most of his time will be shared between rehearsals and booking"Cash Revisited" dates for later this year and into 2023.

Another new show on the horizon is "Songs That Don and Phil Taught Us". The show focus's on the Everly Brothers' legendary reunion shows at the Royal Albert Hall and their subsequent tours, which in the early 1990s featured Duane Eddy as their special guest. Rick will be performing as Duane, as well as playing lead guitar in the show, which has been
 a long time passion project for vocalist/guitarist Gerry Slattery.

None of this means that "Cash Revisited" won't be back, although there may well be more changes and announcements to come. 
Watch this space...

BACK IN THE SADDLE!
Although COVID-19 is still very much in the news these days, we are definitely starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. After a couple of false starts, some illnesses and a lot of messing around, we are now committed to booking new dates around the UK and beyond for Cash Revisited, as well as booking dates for Rick McKay's solo Johnny Cash tribute show.
Jodie McKay will be appearing in her role as June Carter on some of these shows, in between her songwriting shows and her Tammy Wynette tribute shows. 
We managed to play one, extremely successful set at the Malvern Motorhome Show on 21st August, which really did a lot to renew our enthusiasm for the show after almost two full years away from our last live performance.
We really appreciated the audience's reaction. They were amazing, very loud, and so supportive. I don't think the compere, Roger Shepherd, appreciated being booed by the large crowd when he announced that we would not being giving an encore due to time restrictions. We'd have been happy to keep playing all night, but "Full Nelson" were waiting in the wings to  get on stage and do their thing. 
Our next  shows will be in March 2022, at Felixstowe on the 5th and in Exmouth on the 19th.
Rick also has a couple of solo shows booked, one on the 29th January with the incredible Kelly O'Brien of "The Dolly Show" and another in Cosham, Portsmouth on April 2nd. Full details of these and other dates will be added to our calendar as soon as they are confirmed.
More updates will be posted here in the coming days.
