Meet the Band – Gene Wagner

25 February 2019

Our outstanding drummer, Gene Wagner, has been with the Curry band the longest – about 18 years!  Gene was with us from the very beginning, encouraging us to pursue tribute performing full time and helping to shape the overall sound of our band.

Gene has a lifetime of drumming to his credit, high school and college, cruise ships, night clubs, big bands and orchestras – Gene has done it all – backing legendary acts such as Rita Moreno, the Fifth Dimension, Steve Allen and Jerry Van Dyke just to name a few.

With Gene the drumming is always tasteful, and the moments are never dull!  He is a good friend and a valuable member of our band.

"It was a heavenly evening of beautiful music, a shining tribute to John Denver, one of which I believe Denver himself would salute."...

"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.". . .
