I am forming a non-profit corporation dedicated to keeping the music of John Denver alive through performance and education. As an on line radio personality at avradio.org, I host a two hour show at least twice a month since April of 2013, playing his music as well as recordings from the many JD Tribute artists from all over the world. As a musician myself, I have been playing with many of these tribute artists since 2007 on bass guitar or drums/percussion and I have become good friends with all of them which will be a great benefit for this project.
The Rocky Mountain Foundation for the Performing Arts will be used to book John Denver Tribute shows at various venues whether indoors or outdoors around the country and eventually around the world that are holding events such as fundraisers for causes befitting everything John believed in and promoted in his music. We will also offer inspirational/motivational and educational workshops or seminars at each event given by the artists and musicians in attendance. The objective being to introduce John's music to up and coming talent who would like the opportunity to join in with us!
All donations will be used as start up funds for the corporation. I do this as a labor of love for John and his music he left us and I seek no financial gain from this. As a non-profit corporation, a board of directors will be required and needed to help with all aspects of the corporation to keep it operational. Please click here:https://db.tt/Sq0XarTa
