‘Get Rhythm’ are a Johnny Cash tribute band from Cavan who have been making headlines throughout 2013 for all the right reasons.

Get Rhythm have played some of the most famous prisons in the country (including multiple shows in Dublin’s Mountjoy & Wheatfield prisons), appeared at this year’s Electric Picnic festival and are currently selling out shows around the country.

Get Rhythm front man and Johnny Cash fan, Paul McCann, said that he never dreamed the show would progress to the levels it has.

He said, “It started out as a simple idea of having a group of friends playing one or two Johnny Cash tribute shows which then developed into doing these one or two shows inside a prison.

“We never even imagined we would be taking the show around Ireland,” he exclaimed.

Things have certainly progressed for McCann and the rest of the Get Rhythm band with a nationwide tour underway and big touring plans for 2014.

Get Rhythm will be performing their prison show locally at the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co Cavan for one night only on Friday November 15th.

Expect to hear all the Johnny cash favourites such as ‘Ting of Fire’ , ‘Boy named Sue’ ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ and ‘I walk the line’ amongst many others.

Tickets for this Johnny Cash Tribute show are available from Slieve Russell Hotel on (049) 95 26444 or from Multisound, Cavan on (049) 43 61312.
