John Denver tribute vocalist Jim Curry has been tapped as the opening act when “The Cave,” Big Bear’s new rock ‘n roll concert hall, opens its doors for the first time to launch its 2013 season. Owner Dave Stone purchased the historic Village Theater, formally a movie theater, after its closing in 2012 and has refurbished the building into a state-of-the-art concert hall.
The building has an all new look and feel and Stone has added a dance floor to the front of the room for those who the music move can enjoy. Beer and wine will be served.

Jim’s natural voice very much resembles that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continues to sing and specialize in the songs of Denver, sharing John’s positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.
The untimely death of John Denver’s 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 landed an off-camera role singing as the voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Jim to produce full–length John Denver tribute concerts.
He’s not your usual “Vegas style” impersonator. In fact, he is not an impersonator at all. Jim sings, in his own natural voice, a tribute to the music in a way that has to be seen and heard to understand the pure honesty of his amazing performance. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the true essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso” fill the room.
Curry has a large following that has taken to bringing stuffed animals to his concerts. During different songs you’ll seen dolphins or wolves raised high in the air and more than one fan will be showing off their best wolf howl. The interaction just makes the show all that better.
