The songs and stories of legendary musician John Denver will be brought to life when singer-songwriter Ted Vigil returns to the Opera House stage in Remembering John Denver.

When Vigil dons a classic cowboy hat and picks up a guitar, people do a double take!  With an uncanny resemblance and sound of the late John Denver, he creates one of the most accurate representations of any artist likely seen on stage.

Denver was an American singer-songwriter, record producer, actor, activist and humanitarian.  With four No. 1 hits and a slew of Top 10s that resulted in 14 gold and eight platinum albums, he was among the most beloved entertainers of his era.  His "Greatest Hits" album sold more than 10 million copies.  Tragically, Denver died in 1997 when the experimental plane he was piloting crashed of the coast of California.

Twenty four years later, Ted Vigil is honored to pay homage to the man and his music with a tribute show he has been performing for more than a decade.  In Remembering John Denver, he performs many of the late artist's best-loved songs including "Rocky Mountain High," "Annie's Song," "Sunshine on My Shoulder," "Take Me Home, Country Roads," and "Thank God, I'm a Country Boy."  Vigil insists he is not an impersonator, but rather is a singing tribute to this great man and the legacy of his beloved music.

The comments heard most often after one of Vigil's shows are echoed in this review from a longtime John Denver fan:  "I was completely blown away by this young man.  From the moment he set foot on the stage, I was mesmerized by his voice and his incredible resemblance to the late and great John Denver.  Ted's mannerisms and humor were so much like John's that I had to keep reminding myself it was a tribute show … that wasn't really John up on that stage -- Ted Vigil is THAT GOOD!!"

Vigil brings John Denver back to the stage, if only for a little while … and the experience he creates is magical!

Ted Vigil was born in Seattle and raised in Olympia, Wash.  He currently wows audiences nationwide with hi sold-out shows; and he has performed twice for Denver's personal charity, "Windstar Foundation."  In 2019, he was awarded the Rising Star Legend Award by the National Traditional Country Music Association. 

Prepare to travel back to yesterday to experience this magical, marvelous tribute to John Denver.
