Happy Labor Day!

31 August 2023

Labor Day is almost here! I asked google what was the significance of Labor Day because I have been observing Labor Day for many, many years without really knowing what I was commemorating.  First off, it feels like an oxymoron to celebrate a holiday called Labor Day by not working….just saying. When I looked it […]

A familiar looking couple came up to me after one of our recent shows to say hi.  It was Jerry and Sherry, and we hadn’t seen each other since 2014!   The last time we were together was at an event called “Blue Water Weekend” a memorial gathering of John Denver fans in Monterey Bay, California.  […]

In the past I shared one of our WORST letters (June 2022) in which a concert attendee decided that our show was terrible.  https://www.jimcurrymusic.com/what-weve-learned-from-ricky-nelson-click-for-more/ Better yet, let’s forget all about that one. Most often, we get WONDERFUL, ENCOURAGING letters from people that know how to make us smile!  Here is an excerpt from one of […]

The recent news of the passing of Tina Turner (May 24, 2023) had me looking for the television special “John Denver and the Ladies” where John performed one of his songs with Tina Turner.  I had forgotten about the little ‘shtick’ they did when John introduced Tina….very iconic of the silly stuff that television producers […]

We are all sad to witness another “end of an era” after hearing the announcement that the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena, California will be permanently closed.   Backstage owner, Bob Stane, made this very difficult decision while recovering from a recent hospitalization. The 49 seat Coffee Gallery Backstage was truly a unique and very special […]

We are all familiar with the “April Showers Bring May Flowers” saying.  But what do you get with March showers in Southern California?  The answer to that is WEEDS….lots of them!   We have a big back yard and we mostly grow food in the garden so we don’t use herbicides of any kind. Our cool […]

Just For Fun….

You may recall a photo I posted in December.  An incredibly talented wood carver, Jim Miller, came to one of our concerts and surprised us with a carving of Jim and his guitar. We love this little guy! He sits on a shelf in our living room and makes us smile. Flautist Diane Ireland loved […]

Just a few days ago (Jan 28) we were performing our John Denver tribute concert with the Bartlesville Symphony Orchestra.  The orchestra played beautifully and from the first notes of “Rocky Mountain High” to the very last note of “Poems, Prayers and Promises” we were all transported by the lyrics and music of John Denver. […]

December 31 is John Denver’s Birthday! He was born in 1943 so today he would have been 79 years old! Here is a video of John at 51. This is one of the best videos made of John at an “older” age (the Wildlife Concert- 2 years before he died) When you watch it, imagine […]

Why We Do What We Do

1 November 2022

This October 12th marked a very special commemoration for fans of John Denver all over the world.  It’s been 25 years since the terrible accident that claimed John Denver’s life in 1997.  Throughout the month, there have been special gatherings, concerts, radio shows and podcasts, etc. John’s legacy continues after all this time. Memorializing John […]


"The physical resemblance is amazing: the voice is unbelievable. If John Denver were alive today, he'd want to hear his songs performed by Jim Curry."
