Ted Vigil is a singer/songwriter who will pay tribute to the music of John Denver. He began performing at the age of 10, developing his talents as a drummer and singer in school choirs and symphonic and jazz bands.

In 2006, he took first place in the Talent Quest in Laughlin, Nev., which was a competition of contenders from 28 states, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. He then went on to win Komo TV 4’s Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike Contest and has been using his likeness of Denver to pay tribute ever since.

Vigil now performs nationwide for all kinds of venues and has become well-known for his portrayal. The most often-heard comment after his shows is, "I can't believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver. It really took us back."

He has wowed crowds, selling out theaters in Pennsylvania and Kansas and has played twice now for Denver’s own "Windstar Foundation" in Aspen, Co.

He has cruised the Caribbean with Darryl Worley and Jimmy Wayne on a tour that was hosted by Great American Country’s own Storme Warren.

Last year, Vigil was awarded the Rising Legend Award by the National Traditional Country Music Association. He has also had the privilege of performing with Steve Wiesberg, Denver’s lead guitarist.

Performing with Vigil will be Cat Menzies (vocals & keyboard) and Amy Daves (fiddle).

Menzies is a newcomer to Vigil's performances, but is no stranger to the stage. She has performed regularly since 2004 as a lead and backup vocalist in the Detroit area music circuit. Her versatility ranges from popular music and musical theater to operatic repertoire. She is also a professional pianist, music director and instructor, and works frequently with high schools, community theaters and church groups.

Daves was raised on classical music by parents who met in a symphony setting. She studied violin as a child, and as an adult, she found her passion in country music. She has played for several country artists and has opened for national concerts for Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Big and Rich, Lee Brice and Travis Tritt.
