“WOW! I had the pleasure of presenting Rick Schuler’s “Rocky Mountain High Experience” twice and both times I was blown away. During soundcheck 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.”
