"There is no bad seat in this theater for this show."
My wife thought this would be a yawner, but she was impressed. I've always loved live music, and some of the stories told about john denver by the stars of the show were neat to hear. Each band member was introduced and showed off their talent. There is no bad seat in this theater for this show. Excellent show, i loved it.

"Great show."
Great show. Lots of talent and great singing. James is a professional but a down to earth friendly guy who invites you to even put your feet up on the stage. In the little opry theatre you are that close to the stage, just small enough to feel like your are part of the show enjoying the music, jokes. James encourages you to singalong so get your voices ready.
Tip: Just relax and have a good time.
