1. Live on the Plaza: CashBack
Wednesday, Aug. 9 | 7-8:15 p.m.
The Hoover Public Library
CashBack, a Johnny Cash tribute band, will be performing live at the Hoover Public Library on Wednesday, Aug. 9 in the Plaza Wing. What began in 2018 as a group of friends loving Johnny Cash’s music is now a rhythmically-powerful band with “blazing guitars” and voices singing together–ones Cash would be proud of. Lead singer Leif Bondarenko amazes crowds with his musical likeness to Cash–someone he wants fans to remember through the legacy that is music. Stay up to date on this event here.
