Just off a recent tour to MS performing with Marty Stuart and Joanne Cash Michael Patrick's Ring of Fire band helped make history on Nov 3, 2007 where they where part of the ceremony to help Pardon Johnny Cash for his Crime in 1965 of pickin flowers in Starkville, MS. It was a festival about redemption which spoke volumes about the kind of man Johnny Cash was and his contributions to the world. It was at this performance where Michael met members of Johnny's family and received the greatest compliment of all from Johnny's own daughtor "Kathy Cash". She said she heard the band from her hotel window closed her eyes and could hear Dad!
Michael Patrick's "Ring of Fire" band stems from central NJ and is an offspring of the successful country-rock group entitled "The Suburban Hillbillies." While the original band continues to tour locally, it's members have put together this special project.. A tribute show to honor and pay homage to one of their musical icons - Mr Johnny Cash!
In recent years the group and its members have shared the stage with Marty Stuart, John Carter Cash, Steve Earle, Hot Tuna, THe Outlaws, Gary Allan, Jimmy Tittle, Marshall Tucker Band, Commander Cody, Bill Kirchen, David Allan Coe and more
Michael Patrick and his legendary band of "Suburban Hillbillies " have made a commitment to the revival of country, folk and roots music in their homeland of New Jersey. Obviously not a hotbed or breeding ground for the Next Nashville Star, Michael and his band (including members: Dan Markovitch - Lead Gtr/Vocals, Mike Rosenow - Bass, and Drummer -Kevin Johnson) have made incredible strides and carved out a comfortable niche along with a handful of other local performers in fulfilling a desire for something different, gritty, raw and real in New Jersey.
