Cash Only Band at Lake Tahoe’s historic Boathouse Theater

VLUU L200 / Samsung L200

The Cash Only Band is set to play Lake Tahoe Valhalla Arts, Music, and Theater Festival at 7:30 p.m. July 1 in the historic Boathouse Theater.

Founded by front man guitarist Davin Kangas in 2002, the Cash Only Band started out as a Johnny Cash Tribute band and is a musical interpretation not an impersonation. Also featured will be the music of other popular artists including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and David Allen Coe.

Other band members include South Lake Tahoe’s Nate Alcorn on upright bass, bringing a western swing and slap style, and Raybob Bowman on Pedal Steel, who has performed for more than 30 years professionally with the likes of Naomi and Wynona Judd. Lowell Wilson is on the keyboard and synthesizer with his honky-tonk piano style and rock organ-type sounds, along with Tom Parodie on Drums with an innovative style.

“We’re looking forward to performing at this wonderful location and it will be a great show,” Kangas said. “We’re also proud to support our veterans and troops as the American Legion Post 795 has been a pivotal part of our growth and success.”
