Nearly 200 people from Corrigin, Dumbleyung, Harrismith, Katanning, Kukerin and Melbourne attended the A Boy Named Cash show, one of the many Country Arts WA and Act-Belong-Commit touring shows for 2018, which was hosted by the Dumbleyung Theatre Club. The night also featured Lake Grace Band ‘Bale Out’ who kept the crowd rocking and a rolling on the dance floor with lead singer Alistair Hunt showing his amazing talent from his extensive song list and catering by the delectable Michelle Harris of Tasty Treats, Nyabing with the ever-popular supper provided by the Dumbleyung Theatre Club.
From the moment Monty stepped out on stage and greeted the audience with ‘Hello, I’m Johnny Cash’, the boy from Joondalup (originally Sydney, New South Wales) had everyone believing he had just flown in from Tennessee with his perfected southern accent, signature Johnny Cash black attire and what we had all come to hear, his brilliant musical talents. Monty was a fantastic entertainer, even popping in some local flair saying he needed a new June for the night as he had left his wife (June Carter Cash) in Wagin, stuck inside the rear of the big ram. Our audience loved every moment!
There are many people and organisations the Dumbleyung Theatre Club wish to thank, for making the night such a resounding success. Thank you to Country Arts WA and Act-Belong-Commit for selecting Dumbleyung to be part of the A Boy Named Cash tour, the Shire of Dumbleyung, Dumbleyung CRC, Michelle Harris of Tasty Treats, The Dumbleyung Garden Club, Bale Out, members of the Dumbleyung Theatre Club and to our audience for your support by coming along to be entertained by A Boy Named Cash.
