Few music icons have had as lasting an impact on both rock and country, and the aesthetics of both, as Johnny Cash. For six years now, Roadshow Revival has sought to celebrate the Man in Black and his music with this two-day festival featuring live music, a car show, rockabilly and hot rod culture vendors, food and their very popular pin-up girl contest.
Past years’ performers have included Kris Kristofferson, X and The Blasters. This year, an equally rip-roaring lineup ensures a swinging time for all and should prove worth the jaunt to Ventura, where it’s held.
Saturday’s lineup includes Reverend Horton Heat, Slim Jim Phantom Trio, Jamie James and The Kingbees and many more. Sunday’s bill includes Billy Joe Shaver, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys, Petunia and the Vipers, John Doe and a returning set by The Blasters, led by brothers Dave and Phil Alvin. Many more acts are scheduled both days, including Cash tribute acts.
