“Prociuk provided not only song but the complete package – the strumming guitar, the clothes, and the black pompadour hair. Smiles were plentiful and spirits high as people left the theatre after a standing ovation and an encore ending with the classic “Ring of Fire”.”
Recently named International Tribute Artist of the Year at the Josie Music Awards in Nashville, Aaron Prociuk is the real deal when it comes to performing a tribute to Johnny Cash. Growing up in the countryside of East St. Paul, Manitoba, Canada and inspired by the movie “Walk The Line”, Aaron taught himself how to play guitar at the age of 15. After mastering the lead work of Cash's guitarist Luther Perkins, he discovered he had a knack for singing Johnny Cash's music as well.
A.R CASH began in 2013 as a stylistically authentic tribute to Johnny Cash's music from the 1950's through the 1960's. With the addition of acclaimed country songstress Ashley Robertson to pay tribute to June Carter Cash, they charm audiences with solid and playful performances while sharing history of Johnny and June's careers.
Backed by some of the best musicians in the business they attract large audiences wherever they perform having headlined at prestigious venues such as The Red River Exhibition, The Manitoba Sunflower Festival, The Painted Hand Event Centre, The Storyteller's Museum, 3rd & Lindsley Nashville and many more. They have even guest performed at the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival with members of the Cash family including Johnny's youngest sister Joanne Cash & Mark Alan Cash, as well as Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers plus Johnny Cash's legendary drummer WS Holland.
"Our goal is to captivate the audience and bring them back to a time when Johnny Cash was a household name around the world," states Prociuk, "we perform the hits from only that era such as Ring Of Fire, Jackson, and Folsom Prison Blues which makes us unique." The duo is also developing their own original project hot on the heels of releasing a new vinyl 45 rpm record called "Aaron & Ashley".
A.R CASH is available to suit venues of different size from intimate to concert hall, fundraisers to festivals, as headliners or private events. Wherever they go, they attract ardent fans of the man in black who appreciate the music and A.R Cash's efforts to keep the style and legacy of unparalleled artists like Cash going strong.
