Original John Denver video production tribute coming to Sturgeon Bay

You can relive the music of a country music icon and support Ukraine relief efforts next month in Sturgeon Bay. Jerry Kobishop, a local musician who has performed the national anthem at Lambeau Field, has created a special John Denver Remembered show commemorating the 25th Anniversary of Denver’s death on October 12, 1997.  The two-hour musical concert will feature a first-time video production of John Denver performances on the big screen while Kobishop plays his guitar and sings along. Kobishop says the show will begin with “Flying for Me,” a song Denver wrote to honor Christa McAuliffe, the teacher who died in the Space Shuttle Challenger crash in 1986. 

 

 

Kobishop adds that the multi-media sing-a-long celebration of John Denver’s music will emphasize a message of promoting worldwide peace and humanity. He hopes to raise thousands of dollars with proceeds from the show supporting Ukraine through UMCOR. The free concert, with a suggested goodwill donation, will be held at United Methodist Church in Sturgeon Bay at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 8.
