Johnny Cash Tribute Show February 2020
He has a resemblance to Johnny and a voice to match, giving justice to the depth of vocals of the great Johnny Cash. Canadian born Platz is an international artist with a unique background. He performed in the true Honky Tonks and bars of North America for many years before making the move to Australia.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Dail is at home on Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Fiddle, Mandolin and Banjo to name a few. What is unique to this Show is the faithful re-production of Cash's great songs and the Authentic Johnny Cash sound. he m
Johnny Cash began his recording career in 1955. He recorded nearly 1500 songs over an amazing 470 albums. A quick review of his career shows he was not merely a successful country artist, but that he is also one of the most successful artists in popular music having put 48 singles on the billboard Hot 100 pop charts which is one more than the Rolling Stones. He placed 26 albums on the pop charts between 1955 and 1972, the same number as the Beatles during that span. He is one of the few people in history to sell more than 50 million records.
From a musical family, Dail grew up in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains with a house full of kids, guns, (for the bears) and musical instruments. There were banjos, accordians, mandolins, guitars, upright bass, washboard, juice harp, and spoons did double-duty. There were also usually a half dozen friends and relatives having a jam that quite often lasted till well after his bed-time.
His Dad was also a multi-instrumentalist and a great fiddle player. Dail still likes to include a few of those old tunes in his shows. Falling asleep to the sounds of the old country tunes of the day may be what still draws him to the great country songs of the past.
Since arriving here in Australia Dail has created, produced and played a starring role in The Highwaymen Tribute Show, The Grand Ole' Opry Tribute, Johnny Cash Tribute with The Tennessee Two, The Alan Jackson Tribute Show and The Willie Nelson Tribute Show.
These touring shows were all well received and Dail has won acclaim across Australia for the professional standard that was evident to everyone who attended.
One of the outstanding features in all these shows is the incredible talent and versatility he displays both vocally and instrumentally, and with his obvious unrivaled skill playing acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle, mandolin and 5 string banjo, to name a few!
It goes without saying that Dail is a perfectionist but beyond that he is also one of Australia's top entertainers. He has been quoted as saying that the patrons could stay home and listen to their home theatre if all they wanted was great sounding music. They come out to the shows to have a good time and be entertained.
Many fans of the show believe it may be the best "Country Show" currently touring Australia.
