Thanksgiving Trivia

22 November 2017

Today is Thanksgiving Day – A Day for Family, Football and Feasting!  But WE will be doing NONE of those things.   Today, Thanksgiving Day, we will be driving East, from Colorado to Iowa, and we’ll be looking for a Thanksgiving Dinner at Perkins or a Village Inn along the way.  This is not our first […]

If you all will indulge me……. I’d like to share a poem that I wrote, describing the journey of a prayer bundle Renee Wallen gave to me in Waupun, WI.  Renee brought our band out to Waupun for a 2nd time to do a fundraising concert for the Marsh Haven Nature Center, where Renee works […]

When we travel, we often have great opportunities to have fun….. …….but we seldom take them.   Wherever we go, we meet wonderful people who are eager to share the highlights of the places they live.  It seems every community has a nearby natural wonder, interesting museum or a historical site that should be visited when […]

Keeping it Cool

29 August 2017

As I write this blog, we are experiencing what possibly (and hopefully) will be the last heat wave of the summer….. Temps are expected to reach a high of 110 degrees tomorrow in our home town of Upland, California and will stay above 100 degrees the rest of the week.  But nobody here is complaining […]

The time has finally arrived….. for our John Denver Group Cruise to Alaska!  We have a group of 50 people, and together we are going to see Alaska and sing John Denver songs!  Oh, we will probably do a lot of other things too….but I’ve covered the important stuff, lol.   When we come back, […]

We are very sad to tell you that Hank Deutschendorf passed away on June 14, 2017.  The details are easy to find on Facebook or Google – but here is the John Denver Connection: John’s  brother (Ron Deutschendorf) had twin boys, William and Hank.  Hank was named after Ron and John’s father, Henry “Dutch” Deutschendorf.  […]

The Tour Begins

6 June 2017

The Biggest News This Month is the ONLY News This Month….. …and it’s all about the tour.  We have been consumed with preparations:  preparations at home for leaving, preparations with the staff and crew at the concert halls in upcoming shows, hotel reservations, travel routes, packing, etc. etc. etc.  Once you finally get on the […]

Of Course, Spring is about Rebirth and Renewal…..   Poets and painters, songwriters, dreamers and gardeners are all inspired by the promise of spring.  The first flower buds that push up through the snow to announce the end of winter are photographed and posted on Facebook as encouragement to those still stuck in old man […]

Oh Canada!

29 March 2017

We just returned home from a 10 day tour in British Columbia, Canada, and a wonderful time was had by all!   It was a complicated trip, involving several various kinds of transportation and a lot of legal documents – but Diane and Jim worked hard, pre-planning every detail to make sure our travels went smoothly…and […]

A Word About The Nene !

Right now, Jim is in Hawaii… He’s been working on several different cruise ships, visiting ports in the Atlantic side: Puerto Rico, Panama, the Caribbean and the Keys.  Now he’s on the Pacific side, visiting ports in San Diego, Mexico and Hawaii.  While he is on each ship, he will perform his show with the […]


"I have to tell you I don't know when we've enjoyed a show as much as we enjoyed yours. It just swept us away and we did not want it to end! You are all so gifted. And the music of John Denver speaks for itself. It touches the heart."

Julie Coletta,
Tiffin, OH

"It was one of the best programs we have had here and I hope you will come back up next year. The sound and look were perfect and my friends talked all night about how much enjoyment and sentiment your show gave us."

Bob Hartunian
Fawnskin, CA.
