The Men Behind The Man In Black, otherwise known as The Tennessee Three have confirmed a very special one-off show at Carling Academy Islington, alongside Alabama 3, on Monday 19th March where they will perform a live set consisting primarily of the historic music they played with Johnny Cash along with their popular original material.

A live performance by The Tennessee Three is unlike any other history in music. They are not a ‘tribute act’ or ‘covers band’, but rather the original men who provided the unique sound that powered nearly every Johnny Cash stage show and recording since 1960. The TN3 is credited as one of only a handful of musicians, who along with their mentor, Johnny Cash, created a truly original and instantly identifiable sound. Cited as an inspiration by hundreds of contemporary musicians in virtually every genre ranging from country, rock, punk, rockabilly, pop and many more, the legendary members of this band are held in the highest regard by both fans and peers alike.

With the resurgence of interest in the life and music of the late Johnny Cash due in part to the success of the biographical blockbuster ‘Walk The Line’, the Broadway play ‘Ring of Fire’ and countless re-releases of audio and video recordings from Cash, so has a new, younger audience joined the already dedicated fans of the TN3’s classic body of work.

Warming up the band at this very special event are Alabama 3, playing a unique acoustic and unplugged set, in support of their heroes: “We’re honoured, as disciples of The Man In Black, to be on stage with the guys who walked the line with the great man for 70 years.”
