Using music and story to help us unlock our joy, our voice and our own stories.
The Mighty Quinns perform a tribute to the songs, music and spiritual connection of John Denver. Audiences everywhere have been thrilled and delighted to hear Denver’s music presented with the integrity of his intended message. Playing guitars, mandolin, percussion and bass, the Quinns present a fully energized performance evocative of Denver’s live concerts (and the entire band sings). The kindred musical talents and influences of the band members allow a performance true to the messages of peace, understanding and reference for the earth and environment that made Denver’s music so special. The Mighty Quinns are John Hoover, Bruce Webb, Dick Sorenson and James Maltos and are inspired by John Denver, The Beatles, Dylan and many more. That is how we found each other and became friends, sharing the love and joy of a good song, strong emotions and deep friendships. Many have forgotten that our planet needs a voice to go along with her music. Just like John Denver, we are that voice, her lyrics, sharing her message to all who will listen. Denver’s best known hits such as “Rocky Mountain High” and “Annie’s Song” are featured in every concert, along with many lesser known but equally deserving Denver songs. John Hoover also incorporates his own originals seamlessly into each set. The Quinns have recently blown away audiences in Marysville, WA (Opera House), Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards (Bend, OR), and Coyle, WA (Concerts in the Woods), among many others.
“John Hoover and The Mighty Quinns’ appearance at the Coyle Community Center was a pleasure indeed … Hoover's smooth and powerful voice is a perfect fit for John Denver's wealth of songs … a special experience for everyone in the hall.” Norm Johnson, host: Concerts in the Woods, Coyle, WA “It was a good weekend to be a John Denver aficionado in Estacada… Both shows offered a laid back atmosphere, with the band encouraging attendees to sing along to both Denver’s hits and lesser known songs…” Portland
