"Back Home Again" A Tribute to John Denver
"Tom Becker's John Denver Tribute does more than simply remind you of John Denver and the music that made him famous. Tom and his fabulous cast of musicians go a step further and recreate the essence of folk music, both onstage with delightful vocals and masterful playing, and offstate with their ability to please the audience to the core."
-- Amanda Segur, Cultural Center Theater, Port Charlotte, FL

Tom Becker is a former member of the Legendary Folk Group, The New Christy Minstrels. and has gone on to appear with numerous Grammy Winners and Music Legends including Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman and Jerry Jeff Walker.

In recent years, Tom began to feel that John Denver's music and message were more important than ever. "In this time of environmental concerns, and Americans' efforts to simplify their lives, it seems that John Denver's music and message are even more relevant today, yet you rarely hear his music on the radio anymore."

So, he and his wife, Michelle Becker, 7-time TRMA Female Vocalist of the Year, assembled a stellar band and created a concert that will inspire both long-time Denver fans, and those who may be less familiar with his music.

From the foot-stomping fun of “Thank God, I’m a Country Boy”, to the tenderness of Annie’s Song”, to the sweeping grandeur of “Rocky Mountain High” -- Tom and his band take you on a musical journey into the many facets of John Denver's songwriting, the songs that defined his life, and his passion for the preserving the environment. Timeless, universal themes of home, family, love and nature create the framework for “Back Home Again.” Personal anecdotes and observations from Tom’s career in folk music create a warm, humorous and uplifting experience.

Michelle’s performance in "Back Home Again" is just a small part of her diverse musical career. She's appeared with Brenda Lee, The Coasters The Drifters, The Platters, Lee Greenwood and Loretta Lynn.

Together, Tom & Michelle have performed in 40 states, Europe and the Caribbean, with a concert that draws upon 6 decades of popular music. They are 5-time TRMA Duo of the Year.

Like the gentleness of the wind through the Aspen trees and the majesty of the Rocky Mountains -- getting back to the basics never felt so good!
