We finally got some extra time to do something, so we went to the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona…….  ……and I have to say, after many years of promoting this place, and encouraging John Denver fans to go – I found that I was ultimately disappointed and puzzled and challenged – all at the […]

As we go along our merry way, spreading cheer and good will……. We are reminded that we have a duty to share our experiences, good and bad, that others might learn. In these blogs I have occasionally included helpful travel tips that our friends can use to better their traveling experiences.  I’ve written about cheap […]

I distinctly remember the time that my Dad told me……. “Someday, young lady, you are going to wish life would slow down.  The older you get, the faster it goes.”    I guess I made a comment about wishing I was grown up, and my dad took that opportunity to warn me that growing up […]

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 […]

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 […]


"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

"I know beyond doubt that I want to join your show whenever I can. You guys exhibited
nothing but big league leadership & Professionalism."

Steve Weisberg
John Denver band member and songwriter Dallas, TX
