Tribute to John Denver in Payson Wednesday

NASHVILLE, TN – (October 17, 2011) – Boasting the only full length concert tribute to John Denver, Jim Curry will lend his voice and remarkable resemblance to the star in his crowd pleasing production of “Take Me Home: the Music of John Denver” at the Payson High School Auditorium in Payson, AZ on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.

Single tickets are $35 (if seating is available). Children and youth, grade 12 and under, will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult. For more information visit the association website at or call 928-478-4363 or 928-474-4189.

Jim Curry makes no effort to “impersonate” John Denver. The remarkable likeness in looks and vocal style is natural; the resulting easy going performances are perhaps the most noteworthy tribute to the late Mr. Denver. The birth of this project began when Mr. Curry was hired to be the singing voice of John Denver in the 1997 CBS movie “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story.” The live show includes video imagery of the great outdoors, images that inspired the music and life of John Denver. The show is anchored by a full band. “Take Me Home” has enjoyed a successful run of concert tours and as feature entertainment for Holland America Cruise Lines.

The Tonto Community Concert Association is committed to bringing quality entertainment to the Rim Country through an annual concert series and support of the fine arts in Payson schools. This series is intended as an enriching cultural experience for the people of Payson and those in surrounding communities.
