Looking like entertainment icon John Denver is one thing. Sounding like him, too, is – well, comparable to a Rocky Mountain High for the incomparable singer-songwriter Rick Schuler.
Louisiana-born and Missouri-raised, Rick was a mere 13 when comparisons to the then wildly popular Denver began. When researching his “superstar” body double, Rick discovered he could sing like him, too and soon began to teach him self how to play guitar. The first look-sound-play-alike piece of many that Rick eventually mastered was Denver’s melodic and widely revered “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” His first public performance at age 16 was in a Six Flags “Talent” show featuring the amusement park’s employees. Though a mere chicken cook at the time, Rick’s rendition of Rocky Mountain High garnered a standing ovation from the crowd of thousands.
At 18, Rick was featured on a TV show Incredible Kids & Co. on CBS (KMOX) which ultimately aired on numerous network affiliates across the country. After a subsequent featured radio performance on The Jack Carney Show starring as “the John Denver guy,” Rick eventually moved out to California to pursue his own Americana songwriting career while continuing to perform Denver’s music at a variety of venues across America.
Rick’s Denver-inspired country roads lead him to Aspen, Colorado, where he attended his first John Denver tribute (the 13th annual) in memory of the popular entertainer’s life and music. During the course of the two-day event, Rick met several of Denver’s former band mates and close friends who were nothing short of astonished by the similarities the two shared in look, sound and musical talent.
Rick Schuler's "A tribute to John Denver, The Rocky Mountain High Experience®", takes the audience on a journey through the greatest hits of John Denver from the 1970's along with a few of Rick's Denver-esque compositions mixed in with some story telling. Rick's show is pure family brand entertainment for all ages.
