Get Rhythm At The Pub! With Johnny Cash and June Carter

Don’t miss your chance to relive the magic and love between country’s most famous couple with The Johnny Cash & June Carter Show.

In ‘Get Rhythm’ witness real-life husband and wife duo Mark Caligiuri and Johanne Caligiuri mimic famous on-stage couple Johnny Cash and June Carter.

Alongside Mark and Johanne are Mark’s sons, Chris and Lucas, and Mark’s cousin Adam Prozzo – making this incredible show an authentic family affair.

At young ages, both Mark and Johanne loved classic music, Johanne grew up listening to 50’s rock and roll and Mark grew up singing along with the rockstar Elvis.

It wasn’t until they saw Walk The Line in 2006 that Johanne decided to create a Johnny Cash and June Carter show, and with Mark loving the music also, he was all for it, and they have now been performing the show together since 2007.

Like many, the COVID-19 lockdown paused their performances, but they used this time to develop the show making it even bigger and better.

During lockdown Johanne said her stepsons reached out to her and Mark.

“They said, I know you guys are working on this show, can we be involved in it too,” said Johanne.

“So, it actually came from them reaching out to us after noticing what we were doing behind the scenes.

“And I always say to the boys, this is very special, don't forget this time with your dad because in years from now you will look back and it is very unique.”

Get Rhythm is usually a theatre act, but Mark and Johanne are looking forward to their visit to The Pub.

They performed last year and said the staff were exceptional and they can’t wait to perform again.

“At Airlie Beach Hotel it is a bit more laid back and we love feeding off the audience. So, if the audience are wild, we're going to be wild with them,” said Johanne.

“We can guarantee that people will have a good time, it's going to be so much fun!

“And if you want to sing along, you can do that too!”
