John Denver Tribute Concert Coming to Sun City Center
The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West, welcomes Tom and Michelle Becker, one of the country’s top John Denver tribute groups for a 7 p.m. concert on Friday, February 1, 2019 in the sanctuary.
Back Home Again is a tribute to the musical legacy of John Denver. John Becker is a former member of the well-known musical group, the New Christy Minstrels. His wife, Michelle is a song writer and vocalist, and is a 7-time Trop Rock Music Association (TRMA) Female Vocalist of the year. Tropical Rock (Trop Rock) is a genre of popular music that incorporates elements of Rock and Roll, Country, Caribbean, Reggae and any other musical style that creates a laid-back state of mind.
Their music has also been featured in a PBS special that goes by the same name, Back Home Again. They have performed in 40 states, Europe and the Caribbean. They have also performed with such greats as Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman, Exile, Ray Charles, Lee Greenwood, American Idol Finalists and many other stars of the entertainment world.
This special concert is all about the music of John Denver, Tom’s idol and mentor. As Tom says, “It all started with a Sears Silverstone guitar and the music of John Denver”. From the spirited, Thank God I’m A Country Boy to the tender, Annie’s Song and the majestic sound of Country Roads (Take Me Home), Back Home Again is sure to evoke the spirit and memories of John Denver, one of America’s most beloved and popular singers and songwriters of the 20th century. A donation of only $10 is requested at the door on the night of the concert.
