We went to hear James Garrett do his tribute to John Denver. Being a huge fame of the late, great singer, it was refreshing to see he was not trying to be John Denver. James knew John. His goal was to keep John’s music and legacy alive. His stories, guitar playing and stage presents was beautiful. He nailed each song with his own style. I really recommend this show. It is a marvelous and intimate experience. His promoter and his bass accompaniment are both an awesome compliment to this wonderful show. I think I was smiling the whole time.

The venue is small and intimate. The performer, James Garrett, doesn't try to imitate or look like John Denver. This is a tribute by a friend of John's. He tells some stories about John, whom he obviously remembers most of all as a friend. He does, of course, sing some of John's songs, including the biggest hits, and he does it well. Three veteran musicians, all of whom are excellent, back Garrett. The show is enjoyable, even for those who don't remember John Denver, and we came away with a few new insights into the life of one of our favorite performers.

We really enjoyed the personable touch of this intimate setting. The singing and the Q/A was wonderful, James Garrett made the atmosphere feel very comfortable, like sitting around with friends, a touch of humor added to the warmth and the musical talent of this group of individuals, it was one of a kind, a must see!...
God Bless!

Choice of songs is for the most part excellent, although many of us have favorites and he can't play EVERYthing.

His guitar playing is excellent.

His singing isn't up to Denver's--Denver could hold a note for a long time, and this gentleman can't do that apparently.

The other guy onstage for comic relief is a stock figure of Ozark comedy--the hayseed in the overalls--and these can become so ever-present that they become equally tiresome.

His communication with the audience is good.

This was my favorite program of the shows I saw.
