Jim Curry's John Denver Tribute

November 13, 2017 • 7:30 p.m.
Highland Park Community Church

Jim Curry began his music career writing and performing the opening song, "The Time of Your Life" for his senior play.

The song was then voted to be the 1975 class song and Jim was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study music in college. Even at this early stage in his life Jim's natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continued to sing and specialize in the songs of John Denver, sharing John's positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.

The untimely death of John Denver in 1997 was a tragedy that was felt the world over. Such a void in the musical world 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 landed an off-camera role singing as the voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Jim to produce full-length John Denver tribute concerts.

He's not your usual "Vegas style" impersonator. In fact, he is 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.

John Denver grew rapidly into a mega celebrity when the world was looking for some hope in the late 60's and his lyrics in songs like, "Take Me Home Country Roads" gave America a new lift abroad as well as at home. People all over the world found pride in the natural wonders of the earth, and Jim's performances include the videos John used in his concerts.
