back to the San Bernardino Mountains
Jim Curry brings John Denver's Music to the San Bernardino Mountains
another familiar Rocky
Mountain High, Saturday
evening when Jim Curry and his musicians take center
stage for another back ‘by-popular-demand’ performance at
the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater. The Tribute music of
the late John Denver, Curry’s friend returns to Big Bear Valley audiences,
after numorous Denver concerts through the years with ‘Hey it’s good to be back
home again…’ Saturday September 5th.
Tribute artist Jim Curry, whose voice was
heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home:
The Curry Tribute Band has performed Denver’s music in sold-out shows
throughout the country. Curry has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s
vast legacy of multi-platinum hits.
Curry’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s
voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when, Sunshine, Calypso, Love Is
Everywhere and Annie’s Song,
topped the charts, and Denver’s popular music had the heartfelt message of
caring for the earth and caring for each other.
The Saturday evening concert begins at 5:00 P.M. with Bear Big Valley sensation, Nikki Sparks, delivering her own brand of country and rock on acoustic guitar.
‘We’re thrilled to have the Curry’s
Tribute Band back to help celebrate Season 10evening and honor the
thousands of dollars he helped raise through his tribute to John Denver’s
music. How appropriate to end a milestone season of fundraising with a
tribute to the artist that first raised our awareness to take care of our
mountains, planet and each other,” shared Music in the Mountains Producer,
Curry’s Tribute Band will perform at 7:00 P.M.
