WHO: Ted Vigil and Steve Weisberg
WHAT: John Denver Tribute
WHEN: Friday, September 13th @ 9 p.m.

TICKETS: $20, [masked]
DINNER: PLAYERS at 6 p.m.
Music Cleveland! will venture to the West Side for a unique event that may resurrect some memories for us. I can remember John Denver quite vividly both on television and on a hot night at Blossom in 19...whatever. He was truly an amazing person both in talent and character. He probably did more for our environment than any other single individual in history all while creating smiles and warm feelings.
This will be our first visit to The Winchester. They don't serve food so we'll have dinner before the concert at the nearby PLAYERS on Madison. The venue has an impressive schedule of concerts but you will notice that we aren't featuring any Members' discount on admission. Seems that the Winchester management is not very appreciative of our efforts. But that won't deter us in our search for good live music. This concert promises to be memorable at list price.

A JOHN DENVER TRIBUTE - Featuring look-alike Ted Vigil and longtime John Denver guitarist Steve Weisberg -
In just a very short time Ted Vigil has developed his John Denver tribute into a national act. He performs all over the country at casinos, show rooms, night clubs, fairs and festivals. Last year Ted was at the John Denver Festival, The CMA Fan Fair Festival in Nashville, the Travelin' Inc Country Cruise with Darryl Worley & Storme Warren among many other venues.
The most heard comments after the show are, "I can't believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver, it really took us back!"
Guitarist Steve Weisberg will join Ted Vigil on stage for this concert. During John Denver's very biggest years,[masked], Steve Weisberg played guitar for all John's concerts, TV shows and records.
Steve Weisberg's studio work with John Denver includes John Denver's Greatest Hits, Volume 1, Back Home Again, Evening With John Denver, Rocky Mountain Christmas, Windsong, Spirit, and Greatest Hits Volume 2. And John Denver even included a few of Steve's songs on his albums.
This wonderful and entertaining tribute to John Denver has packed the house in quality venues and theaters across the USA.
Tickets are $20, Showtime is 9pm.
