""Mighty Cash Cats Concert Review in Hermosa Beach""


"Michael J Smith leads the performance playing a black acoustic guitar. It is impossible not to be drawn to the bass texture of his voice and his physical and aural resemblance to Johnny Cash is practically eerie. Letica Blumette steals the stage with the energy covering songs by Shania Twain, Gretchen Wilson and Pat Benatar. The Mighty Cash Cats are purely live entertainment for a live audience. They know how to talk to the crowd and maneuver their instruments and voice to create a body of sound for each song, no matter the genre or mood. The Mighty Cash Cats are a band with the musical chops. They closed with Cash's Orange Blossom Special to raccous applause!"
- Los Angeles Music Connection Magazine


""The audience thought Johnny Cash returned to the bandstand""

“If the audience closed their eyes during Michael J’s show they, no doubt, thought that the country-rockabilly crooner, Johnny Cash, had managed to find his way back to the terrestrial bandstand.” Jerusalem Post - Jerusalem Post


""As Close as you can get to the real thing""

"The Mighty Cash Cats is about as close as you can get to the real thing, Johnny Cash." - Salt Lake City Tribune


""Michael J embodies Johnny Cash""

"Michael J embodies Johnny Cash in The Mighty Cash Cats and Leticia Blumette does a spot on June carter. If you are not a fan before their Show, you will be after." - LA Weekly

Rave Reviews:

"The best Johnny Cash tribute band is right here in the 805, the Mighty Cash Cats, who will play at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on July 11. Michael J. sounds just like 'The Man in Black,’ and Leticia Blumette tears it up with that powerhouse room-filling voice.  She is the June to his Johnny, and when harmonizing with Michael, puts these Cats on top." Bill Locey, Ventura Star
