Singer-songwriter Rick Schuler returns to The Event Center stage for a second time with his uncanny resemblance, vocals and stage persona that headlines the “Rocky Mountain High Experience, A Tribute to John Denver.” After a successful show in 2017, Schuler will bring the iconic hits of John Denver to life at Rivers Casino Philadelphia on Saturday, September 19 at 8 p.m.
Schuler’s show offers audiences the most authentic John Denver concert experience by incorporating the country legend’s greatest hits with two of Denver’s musicians included in the band: longtime drummer, Richie Garcia and vocalist, Mollie Weaver. Schuler has shared his Rocky Mountain High Experience with thousands of Denver fans and features renditions of hit songs including “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders” and more.
Given Denver’s impact on the music industry, the Rocky Mountain High Experience is an exceptional tribute show, depicting a legendary music career that spanned four decades. Fans will reminisce on the Americana-folksy sound and, in addition to Schuler’s original Denver-inspired material, will enjoy renditions of “Annie’s Song,” “Back Home Again” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed,” which was written by Jim Connor, Denver’s longtime banjo player.
Schuler came into prominence at the age of 16 with his first public performance of “Rocky Mountain High,” which was received with a standing ovation. His musical talent and public appeal subsequently led to television and radio appearances including a feature on The Jack Carney Show, as “the John Denver guy.” With his “Rocky Mountain High Experience,” Schuler has created a show that features fan favorites with some of Schuler’s own Denver-esque compositions.
