Jim Curry: Take Me Home - The Music of John Denver

07:30 pm - 02/22/2018

The untimely death of John Denver in 1997 was a tragedy felt the world over, creating a void that left John’s ardent fans demanding that his music survive. CBS television responded by producing a made-for-TV movie, Take Me Home, the John Denver Story, in which Jim Curry landed an off-camera role as the singing voice of John Denver, an experience that inspired Jim to produce full-length John Denver tribute concerts. He’s not your usual “Vegas-style” impersonator; in fact, he’s not an impersonator at all. Jim sings, in his own natural voice, a tribute to the music in a way that has to be seen and heard to understand the pure honesty of his amazing performance. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the true essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song,” and “Calypso” fill the room. To compliment Jim’s performance visually, a multi-media presentation of slides and video—some of which is the original video John Denver used in his own shows—is played in sync with each song.
