Cover charge for 18 and older is $10/person $15/person for certain bands. Rain or shine. Reservations for tables will be accepted starting one month prior to the event.

Concerts will be held rain or shine. The following is the new rainy day policy.

When you call and make a table reservation, you will also be asked for the number of seats you want to reserve for inside seating in case it rains.

These seats will be reserved with a prepaid, nonrefundable ticket. This ticket is good for the concert either inside or outside. This ticket will guarantee you a seat inside if it rains.

We will offer our season ticket holders the first option to confirm a seat. Next, seats will be offered to season table holders. After that, tables with reservations will have first choice.

Once all reservations are confirmed, we will offer the remaining inside seats, if any, to the public on a first come, first serve basis.

Once all inside reserved seating is sold out, the concert grounds may still be available for lawn chair seating, if weather permits, at the regular ticket price. However, there is no guarantee that the band’s speakers will reach all areas of the concert grounds. We regret any inconvenience this may present. Please remember, we cannot control the weather. We are trying to make this as fair a policy as possible to be able to hold the concerts, rain or shine!!

Back by popular demand! His success has really taken off and we are very lucky to get him back.

It was undeniable, he looked like John Denver, an artist he’d never heard of until that moment. Nearly four decades later, Schuler has emerged as the leading performer of John Denver’s music. His Rocky Mountain High Experience® is just that, a true experience. Even John’s own bandmates sing his praises.

Schuler not only sings, sounds, and looks like Denver, he shares his humanitarian spirit and incorporates his global works into the show. He performs in front of thousands of Denver fans at such wide-ranging venues as performing art centers, theatres, and outdoor festival stages, and has been featured on nationally syndicated television and radio shows.
