Dave Reinwald’s ROCKY MOUNTAIN BAND – Live Music for Benefits, Fund-raisers, Concert Events
The ROCKY MOUNTAIN BAND specializes in the rich and majestic music of the beloved John Denver, having performed to date nine John Denver tribute concerts for various benefit and fund-raising events.
Just prior to the 2010 Independence Day Holiday, The ROCKY MOUNTAIN BAND performed a ‘rousing “God Bless the U.S.A.” concert at Kissinger’s Lutheran Church, Wyomissing, PA, featuring music from Garth Brooks, Josh Turner, Lee Greenwood, Elvis Presley and Josh Groban - and a couple of tunes from the John Denver songbook, too ! Then they wrapped up the evening with several patriotic and inspirational numbers.
Then, in August of 2011, it was The ROCKY MOUNTAIN BAND at beautiful Kaercher Creek Park for the Summer Concert Series of the Berks County Parks & Recreation Department.
