The Johnny Cash 82nd Birthday Bash returns to the Bell House with two nights of music on Friday, February 28, 2014 and Saturday, March 1, 2014. Both nights will be headlined by Alex Battles & The Whisky Rebellion and feature guest singers and classic films from archivist Clinton McClung. This event has been a Brooklyn tradition since its inception in 2005.
Alex Battles played his first Johnny Cash tribute show a week after the Man In Black’s death in 2003. In 2004, he started The CasHank Hootenanny Jamboree, a monthly jam dedicated the music of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and other four-chord artists. The Johnny Cash Birthday Bash started in 2005 at a bar called Lillie’s on the Red Hook waterfront. From there the party moved to Southpaw in 2006, and finally to the Bell House in 2010.
This show has sold out every year since its inception. Advance tickets are strongly recommended. Fans may purchase individual tickets to Friday or Saturday or limited-edition two night passes for two nights of music. See you at the show!Read More »

Facebook invites. I know, right? Ubiquitous, annoying, misplaced. I get it. Well, Mr. Sheldrake, all your troubles are over. From now on, I’ll only be sending event invites to the folks in this group: Fans of Alex Battles & The Whisky Rebellion. It’ll also be a place for people to share photos, recordings etc.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
