Loved the venue, first of all. We enjoyed seeing/hearing the guys who used to play with John....personal stories were a plus. Great film too, although a few times the sound didn't match up with the moving mouth

it was a great show, but think it needed a little more polishing. Sometimes the audio and video were out of sync.

The John Denver Rocky Mountain High concert was outstanding. It was not a tribute band - it was the closest thing you could get to being at a John Denver concert, which of course is impossible. It was a great night of his music, with video of him performing, accompanied by 3 members of his band. When the showed clips of those 3 people performing with John on video and then there they were just below the video screen on the stage playing live -- it gave me chills and almost made it feel like John Denver was just going to walk out any second.

We always loved John Denver's music, had been to a couple of his concerts and even drove as close as we were allowed to get to his home in Aspen when we were vacationing in Colorado!

Reviewer: Katie

The parts that they played with John Denver were great, but they also spent too much time playing their own songs or songs we didn't know

Reviewer: Gerald

Having the original members of his band actually performing onstage really made the show special. Only thing I would recommend is to make the video screen bigger. I sat in row L so I had no problem, but I heard some folks at intermission saying that the screen was hard to see when sitting towards the back.

Saw the PBS special recently, which had singers doing his songs. Only John Denver can sing his songs, so having the video, along with his band and back up was perfect.

The passion and time it took for not only band members to take away from their own families but also Johns family in sharing such amazing footage of his life. SIMPLY AMAZING!!! You could feel the love. I do wish the screen playing films was larger!

Reviewer: George

I am a musician and singer and was (and still am) a HUGE John Denver fan. This performance by members of his original touring band and others combined with the strong vocals and guitar playing of John via multimedia made it seem as though I was ACTUALLY attending a John Denver concert back in the 1990s. What a great tribute by the bandmembers who travelled with John and knew him well. I don't know how they were able to perform without crying.

Because ... it's John Henry Deutschendorf Jr. and he is a legend. His music will live on forever. I am 49 and to feel like I'm seeing him in concert again was just amazing. And thank you band and family for putting this all together. An added plus for me, listening to Jim Horn. I could never play Annie's Song as well on my flute. I just loved this concert and thank you for making this happen,

Reviewer: Diane

Great performance! The only negative was the parking. As we approached the theater from the west in the left turning lane we saw the "lot full" sign too late to get over in the right lane. Instead of the parking attendant having us do a quick turn around, we were forced to go the whole way to the back lot and circle around, but this took 10 minutes to do as we sat there for several minutes not moving. And then had to park way back in the parking across the street. We had arrived 20 minutes ahead of time but didnt get to seats until 2 min. after start time. Not a pleasant way to begin. But fortunately the show was great.

It was better than I expected as I did not realize that original band members would be part of the band. It was a wonderful tribute to JD and a wonderful trip down memory lane! The only thing that would have made it better would have been a larger screen for the videos.

I love John Denver's music. Only thing, the screen needs to be higher and band members need to be lower due to blocking 25% of the lower end of screen. Could not read some of the subtitles & missed some of the footage due to microphones, or band members heads in the way.

Great Tribute!Reviewer: Linda G.

I've been a John Denver fan since I was 10. I've seen him in concert many times...and have missed him terribly since he's passed.

This tribute concert, where members of his original band accompany a video of John almost brought him back to life!

What really touched me though, was the sincerity of the band members, who after 15 years, still love and respect John so much that they wanted to do a tribute concert like this. I was also touched by how truly appreciative they were to all of us fans, many of whom came from far away, for being there!!

A truly amazing concert...and I would love to see it again! Thank you to the band and all who were responsible in making this show possible!!
