June's Got the Cash

June's Got the Cash is a traveling theater show band! They celebrate the music of Johnny Cash & June Carter, dress in vintage costumes and each show is scripted to take you back to where to all began. Walk the Line with Johnny & Junebug!

Jenna Middleton as June Carter Cash
June’s Got the Cash was formed by lead vocalist Jenna Middleton in 2008. Ever since the movie “Walk the Line” debuted she had a vision. Her vision was a “show band” but not just ANY show band; A tribute to Johnny and June. Middleton stated, “I had no experience in running a band, in fact I made a million mistakes. All I had to do was believe in myself and the rest would fall into place. All of my sweat and tears have been worth the ride. We have traveled throughout the Midwest and just this past year became International as we toured Canada. My dreams became reality when we started to sell out theaters; when we headlined county fairs and when we filled over 3500 seats for festivals! It’s an honor to play the lovely, and talented June Carter Cash!” Back in 1999, Jenna made her musical debut with record label La Musique Populaire with producers Eric Haugen and Ryan Bassler. She released Sunscreen’s single “Love You More” onto their Century of Song album. Jenna’s huckleberry humor and sweet songbird voice really come to life when singing with onstage hubby.

Mr. Jonathan Lyons as Johnny Cash
From as long as he can remember, Jonathan was singing songs from before his time. It started with singing for family and friends around the campfire and quickly progressed into a passion for music. At age 11, he tried the trumpet, but later found himself much more comfortable behind the drumset. He says that he really enjoys playing the drums, but he’s always had the itch to be the front man, and he never turned down the opportunity to sing for people. His Uncle, who he loved and respected, was a big fan of Johnny Cash which got Jonathan starting to sing along to some of his songs. After discovering his ability to hit those rich low notes, Johnny Cash became a frequent request among his family gatherings, and by age 15, Jonathan began doing shows as The Man In Black alongside his dad as Elvis Presley. As the years went on, Jonathan perfected his craft and even moved on to impersonating a young Elvis Presley bouncing back and forth between the two personas while playing festivals, theater resorts, senior centers, etc. Jonathan loves to share his talent and passion with his audiences and bring people back to a time when music was at its all-time high.

Bobby DeVito as Luther Perkins (Lead Guitar)
It started when Bobby was just 5. Born in Monmouth County, N.J. to an Italian father and a Native American mother, and raised in rural North Carolina, Bobby came under the tutelage of his hard-living maternal grandfather, Warren “Slim” Henderson, who played with Jimmie Rodgers and hosted a radio show at the Grand Ole Opry in the ’40s. Slim played his old Harmony guitar – which Bobby now owns – mostly on his lap, using a pocket knife as a slide. Bobby got hooked straight away. Besides early tutorials from Slim, he soaked up the work of Hendrix, Clapton and Peter Green. Starting at age 12, he played in a variety of bands throughout high school, mostly with older cats, which accelerated his development. The DeVito family moved to New Orleans when Bobby was 14. He grabbed hold of the city’s gumbo culture, reveling in the music, the food and the sultry ambience. Increasingly, you could find Bobby skipping high school and playing on the street with an electric axe, a small, battery-powered amp and an array of effects pedals. He busked in the French Quarter for quarters, made sojourns into Cajun country where he was seduced by zydeco, played celebrated Crescent City clubs like Tipitina’s, Jimmy’s and Harper’s. During college, DeVito, despite being busy as heck, found time for the blues. He gigged with former Chicago harmonica titan “Nitro” Bozeman. After graduating, DeVito threw most of his energy into LVX Nova, working and building myriad contacts through the ‘Net and at BMG. Bobby toured Europe with a Texas guitar monster who previously employed keyboardists, not fellow six-stringers and took Bobby under his wing and showed him his love for music. Bobby has toured all over the world and is excited to create the illusion of the american country music guitarist Mr. Luther Perkins.

Steve Justman as Marshall Grant (Bass)
Steve is a lifelong Chicago area resident and has been a musician since age 12 when he started on guitar playing and singing folk music. By 16 he was also adept at playing banjo and bass and has been involved professionally in many areas of Americana music spanning into six decades. As a teen he was highly influenced by the country music coming out of both Nashville and Bakersfield from artists such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Bobby Bare, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard. From the late 70s to mid 80s Steve was the bassist in the Chicago area country-rock band Pony Express. Following that were projects in bluegrass on both banjo and bass. For about the last 10 years Steve has been also performing solo around the Chicago area. Performing with June's Got The Cash has been a great opportunity to do something he really loves, and that is to play bass in a band doing the country music he loves.

Zac Dawson as W.S. Holland "Fluke" (Drums)
Zac is truly a drummer's drummer. Born as Zachary Dawson he went from a humble trailer court home in rural Indiana to gracing the top stages in Chicago to touring North America with punk rock legends The Misfits. Never content with one style he has played reggae, funk, classic rock, blues, hip hop, metal, punk rock and now country. If fact you would be hard pressed to find a style he did not touch over the course of his 22 years of bashing the skins. Zac has graced the stages at the South by Southwest music festival in Memphis, The Congress Theater in Chicago, and opened up on national tours for The Misfits and The Adicts, in addition to local gigs for Night Ranger, Train, and Leslie West from Mountain. Never content to hold still and stagnate Zac has within the past 8 years moved into the production realm and recorded, mixed, and produced local Chicago artists in his home studio. In fact his first live band recording project resulted in a nationally released album Juicehead’s- “The Devil Made Me Do It”. Now he is exploring whole new sound in the country/rockabilly realm with Johnny Cash catalogue. In short Zac provides the rock solid beat that drives the June’s Got the Cash train.
