John Denver Tribute Wednesday


The Tonto Community Concert Association and Live On Stage, Inc. present a John Denver tribute concert Wednesday.

Boasting the only full-length concert tribute to John Denver, Jim Curry will lend his remarkable resemblance to the star in his production of “Take Me Home: the Music of John Denver” at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 9 at the Payson High School Auditorium.

Curry makes no effort to “impersonate” John Denver. The remarkable likeness in looks and vocal style is natural; the resulting easy-going performances are perhaps the most noteworthy tribute to the late artist. The live show includes video imagery of the great outdoors, images that inspired the music and life of John Denver.

“These songs blend the images of our natural earth with a love for each other as people. The care you give to someone you love is the best care. Making that connection to our earth and to each other is the goal,” Curry says of the music and images.

A full band anchors Curry’s show. And Curry plays with many of the musicians who worked with Denver.

The birth of this project began when Curry was hired to be the singing voice of John Denver in the 1997 CBS movie “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story.”

Single tickets are $35 (if seating is available). Children and youth, grade 12 and under, will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult.

For information, call (928) 478-4363 or (928) 474-4189.
