Destination Concerts!

1 October 2022

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 beautiful locations or places worth seeing!  For those of you that can travel or can spare a little extra time out on the road, it might be a great idea to use our concerts as an excuse to get out and explore!  Some of our friends already do this – they show up and surprise us in random places. Sometimes all you need is that extra little push or reason to go someplace new…..and what better than knowing you will also be hearing your favorite music! (You might even be blasting it in the car all the way there and back….you know who you are!)

This was a GREAT Destination Concert at the Silverton in Las Vegas many years ago!


These past couple of month, we have played concerts in major tourist areas: Lake Tahoe, NV, Rapid City, SD, Des Moines, IA, Townsend, TN and Berlin, OH.  Even the smaller concert locations (Oakley, KS and Coggon, IA) have beautiful landscapes, wonderful people and provide a nice break from the same ol’ same-o!

Every place we visit is unique and has its own reason to be special. We have some very exciting places to visit next month too!  So check out the shows below and consider joining us at a destination concert!

    Hi Cheri! We are excited about performing in San Pedro at the Alvas theater!! This could possibly become a “regular” thing for us if things go well. It looks like a great place to play, not too big, not too small. Glad you could spend your anniversary with us!!

    I don’t know how you’all endure the rigorous pace on the road, however I realize how motivated you are to treat the folks with John’s memorial music. Prayers and Blessings!

    You are exactly right Pete! The motivation is the music!

    When might you decide to perform at Red Rocks? My dad saw John Denver perform there, but I was never as fortunate. My dad has passed, but he always told me what a wonderful experience and location it was!

    Hi Suzette, we would dearly love to do another show at Red Rocks. It is very difficult and expensive to get a show there, we were so lucky the first time. We hope and pray we will have another opportunity.

    Anne, We can’t thank you, Jim and the band enough for coming to Rapid City in support of our Rushmore Noon Optimist Club. Even though its been 4 weeks since the concert, I still get great comments about the “wonderful” performance. Your kindness, flexibility, understanding and generosity shown throughout the whole 2 year long process. We fought the Covid 19 pandemic together and won! Yes, the 3rd time was the charm which Rapid City and our membership will NOT forget! Thank you all so much. Don
