Starring Ted Vigil, whose remarkable physical and vocal resemblance to Denver will charm the audience in this inspirational tribute to John Denver and his musical legacy.
Ted Vigil has always had a love of music and the stage. The Seattle native began singing for audiences at an early age. He started in the church folk band at age eight, and continued singing in musical productions in high school. In 2006 Ted won the national title for Talent Quest in Laughlin Nevada, which prompted him to create his John Denver Tribute show.
In short time Ted developed this tribute into a national act. He performs all over the country including the John Denver Festival and The CMA Fan Fair Festival in Nashville. A highlight of his career, in 2010 Ted performed with John Denver's lead guitarist Steve Weisberg.
His gift for music and his polished and energetic performing style have earned him many dedicated fans. People are astonished about how much he looks and sounds like John Denver!
Like Denver, Ted shares his passion for bringing people together with his music, drawing in audiences of all ages. His love for people, family, and communities working together for great causes, continue to be his main inspiration.
