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 Curry's voice was selected as the voice of John Denver.
Jim Curry has now created the ultimate tribute experience, emerging as the top performer of John Denver's music today. Often performing with John Denver's former band members, Jim Curry's tribute is the first and only full-length John Denver tribute to headline in Las Vegas and has been celebrated nationally and internationally.
Demand for Jim Curry's incredible show led him to develop further material for optional symphony orchestra accompaniment. In an exclusive arrangement with renowned Grammy Award-winning arranger, composer, and conductor Lee Holdridge, Jim and Lee have re-created the symphony scores originally written for John Denver for the benefit of presenters with orchestral venues.
True, Jim Curry's natural voice has to be heard, but he also has to be seen to understand the pleasant coincidence that captures the natural essence of John Denver's persona and music. Curry's heartfelt delivery envelops the crowd as multi-platinum hits such as "Rocky Mountain High," "Annie's Song" and "Country Roads" fill the atmosphere. Superimposed with multi- media images of wildlife photos and videos, this is a show that truly fills up your senses.
"The John Denver Tribute with the Currys was a fantastic show. I cannot remember a time that everyone leaving was so happy and just raved about the show... I just want to repeat, the show was an overwhelming success with our patrons!"
- Jill Jaquet, Peabody Auditorium | Daytona Beach, FL (2014)
"What an amazing gift you all gave to us yesterday at West Sound Entertainment! This is the first time in my life I had tears because the show was over. Your lovely wife made it even more special, as did Diane with her great talents on the flutes. The entire group was so talented and, of course, the John Denver music is priceless. I think your singing of his music is how it wasmeant to be sung. Thank you, thank you beyond words for your wonderful music. You all together make the most beautiful sound!"

"Take Me Home", The Music of John Denver, starring Jim Curry was a sell-out concert for BIG ARTS in 2011 and the performance did not disappoint the audience. Jim and his wife (Annie, can you believe?) and the rest of the group create an atmosphere that is truly a recreation of a John Denver concert, complete with the projection of mountain photography. Curry’s voice is such that, if you close your eyes, you’d swear that John Denver had been resurrected. That said, visually Curry has a reasonable resemblance to John Denver. All added up, our audience went home pleased and still bring up the experience as the best of the ‘nostalgia’ performances we have ever had. Curry and his group are easy to work without extensive personal or technical requirements.
