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….

1 March 2023

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 […]

We’ve all heard of destination weddings (a wedding that is held in an area that everyone travels to).  It’s usually an exotic or fun location or something that suits the personalities of the bride and groom.  Well, what about destination concerts?  I’ve been thinking all month that most of our concerts are held in very […]

I took the opportunity to fly home during a break in our schedule.  I was flying solo – something I’ve only done twice in my lifetime, but I’ve flown numerous times with friends, bandmates and family, no big deal, I know the ropes. When we booked my flight, Jim and I took the opportunity to […]

I often get asked where I would live if I could pick anyplace that I’ve been…. I’ve tried to imagine living somewhere else, but picking a favorite place is like picking a favorite song…. It’s impossible. It’s much easier to name some of the favorite things I’ve seen on the road, like Niagara Falls, Mt. […]


"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.". . .

"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."
