Back by popular demand, Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon return to The Mishler Theatre on March 24, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. to perform the music of John Denver! Hailed as one of the nation’s most exciting John Denver tribute bands, the show has been receiving much acclaim from audiences all over the country.
John Denver’s tragic death left a large part of the nation missing the most loved entertainer of the 1970s. John’s popularity spanned many generations. People from every age group loved his music, from two to ninety-two. His popularity even bridged the oceans, producing mass appeal in places as far away as Russia and China. His unmistakable voice and sincerity left his audiences wanting more. This year marks the 20th anniversary since John Denver left us too soon. Even after his untimely death, the demand for his music remains strong.
As one reviewer wrote: “the trick is developing a unique show and style that represents the artist while brushing their music with original style… Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon does just that.” Although, their show is not an impersonation act, there are the similarities between Chris’s and John’s voices, and Collins also has that unmistakable enthusiasm that was the hallmark of John Denver’s concerts. Joining Chris Collins, members of Boulder Canyon consists of the collaboration of the consummate musicians of Kevin Delmolino on bass, Paul Swanton on lead guitar, and Alexander Mitchell on fiddle and mandolin, Mark Nelson on percussion, and Bill Powell on keyboards. Together, they put on a performance that has been delighting audiences across the nation with its wit, warmth and musical performance.
The Mishler Theatre concert will feature some of Denver’s biggest hits like Annie’s Song, Take Me Home Country Roads, Rocky Mountain High, and Thank God I’m a Country Boy, as well as many more!
