Madison native James Tamelcoff prepares for his "Cash Unchained" show at Germanna Community College's Daniel Technology Center Feb. 2.

'The Man in Black' ➤ 2017 Madison High School graduate James Tamelcoff takes his portrayal of Johnny Cash nationwide By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer “Well, you wonder why I always dress in black…” It’s the opening line to Johnny Cash’s famous “Man in Black,” which lays out the iconic country singers entire mindset - it also explains some of the mystique of the man that Madison native James Tamelcoff pays tribute to. Tamelcoff performed his Cash Unchained tribute show at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center Feb. 2, coming back to Culpeper for the first time since 2016 when he unveiled the show at the now closed State Theatre. In those three years, the show has grown and flourished - he’s headlines the House of Blues in Chicago, played the House of Blues in New Orleans and Myrtle Beach and has toured extensively on the East Coast. It’s been a dream come true for Tamelcoff, performing the music of one of his idols. There may be other Cash tribute artists, but none as young and as experienced as Tamelcoff. At age 20, he’s already been playing professionally for 12 years. He played guitar with his father James Tamelcoff Jr. in Cashless Society and came to prominence during Culpeper Has Talent. He garnered a following playing 200-plus shows a year and now those local fans follow along on social media

as he posts his long list of triumphs. Coming back home last week was an opportunity to return to where it all started. “All the people that have been following along on social media being able to finally see the product that we’re presenting everywhere else,” Tamelcoff said. “Our mission was to bring that concert feel right here to Culpeper. This room is just a room, our plan was to change the atmosphere and give it that concert feel.” A full stage with multiple light changes and a stadium-like sound system greeted concert goers that were treated to Tamelcoff’s unique tribute concert. Cash Unchained takes listeners through the Sun Records era of Cash, into his duets with June (sang by Tamelcoff’s girlfriend Carlie Lambrich) through his work with the Highwaymen and ending with his collaboration with Rick Rubin on the American recordings. “It’s not easy because everyone is a one of a kind person, but I feel Johnny is a very special one of a kind person,” Tamelcoff said. “To be able to capture his essence and his presence and kind of be the middleman to portray that to people, it’s something I’ve worked really hard to study and improve on every day. We don’t try to impersonate Johnny in any way, we don’t take credit for his music, we’re here to pay tribute to the music and keep it alive for people to enjoy.” When Tamelcoff and the band started this at the State Theatre three years ago, he never dreamed it become this big. They sold out the Queen in Wilmington, Del. - their first Live Nation sell out - and ➤ See Tamelcoff, Page 7
