Captain Jim Curry

28 September 2017

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

26 February 2017

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 […]

We were just talking to some friends… …about Jim’s experience as a sign painter.  We told them about this blog, published so long ago that it has been dropped from our website.  It’s time to revisit the story with this throwback blog:  March 2014 – Jim Curry at 20 Years Old…..found himself facing a tough […]


"I cannot wait for our market to hear Jim’s voice; it truly is spot-on and a beautiful tribute to John’s music."

"It was a real trip down memory lane. ... Jim Curry was over there sounding like John Denver. A couple of times I closed my eyes and went back 15 years. It was strange and cool at the same time.". . .
