Jims uncanny ability to mirror Johns voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when Rocky Mountain High Sunshine Calypso and Annies Song topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.
Hes 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 Denvers music. Currys heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as Denvers multi-platinum hits fill the room.
The untimely death of John Denvers 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 fulllength John Denver tribute concerts.
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 Jims 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 Johns positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.
"It was a heavenly evening of beautiful music, a shining tribute to John Denver, one of which I believe Denver himself would salute."...
