JOHN DENVER, INDIANA JONES, AND MYSTERIES OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS ALL ROLLED UP INTO ONE, AS HE SPREADS A MESSAGE OF PEACE AND EARTH LOVE.

How do you explain the inexplicable? You don’t, you just go with it.

 Ever since singer, songwriter and adventurer Rick Schuler wore his first pair of round glasses at 13, the murmurs began. It was undeniable, he looked like John Denver, an artist he’d never heard of until that moment.

 It was during an era when the music of John Denver permeated the airwaves with sweetness and sunshine, a salve to the wounded and weary soldiers returning home unloved from an unpopular war.

 “John Denver was the biggest star in the world, and I didn’t have any idea who he was,” says Schuler, who quickly discovered that Denver was the guy on the radio whose music he loved. “I was a very shy kid and John and I kind of became bonded. I taught myself to play guitar and it grew from there.” 

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.

WOW! I had the pleasure of presenting Rick Schuler’s “A Rocky Mountain High Experience” twice and both times I was blown away. During sound check of his first show, I was backstage and turned to one of the staff to ask why they were playing a CD instead of doing sound check. Turned out, it was Rick. He sounded just like John Denver... not to mention, he looks like him too. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he and his band are truly nice and easy to work with.
