About Jim Curry

Jim Curry was raised in Ontario, California, but in his junior year in high school, he and his family moved to Dickenson, Texas. Jim enjoyed music and participated in plays at school. One year, he was encouraged to write a song for a school play. He was hesitant at first to participate. Although he loved music and could play chords on his guitar, he didn’t really have much experience writing music. Despite his lack of experience, he composed a great song and not only was his song well received, but it also became the official class song that year. Rotary International also recognized his talent and awarded Jim a two year scholarship to study music at college. He used that education as his foundation for music as well as a launch pad for his career.

Jim Curry always loved the music of John Denver. It was a huge part of his life and when he performed, people would frequently remark to him how much he looked and sounded like John Denver. In addition to performing various John Denver songs, Jim also participated in a John Denver Celebration event in Aspen Colorado held every year. After John Denver passed away, word got around in 1998 that CBS was filming a John Denver biopic. Jim was interested in helping to provide music for the movie so as soon as he returned home from the John Denver celebration event, he contacted CBS and through a couple of contacts, he was able to send them a CD of his music to CBS for consideration. CBS ended up hiring Jim to include vocals for the first portion of the movie, which was titled “Take Me Home - The John Denver Story”. After providing vocals for the biopic, Jim decided he wanted to continue bringing the sounds of John Denver to the rest of the country. His participating in the movie helped launch his dream of performing at concerts around the country. He normally performs around 150 concerts per year with his band and has played at Dosey Doe Big Barn before. His concerts are an anticipated event in The Woodlands.

About John Denver

John Denver burst on the music scene back in the 1960s. He was known for writing and singing some of the most iconic songs in music history. His style and personality was well received and his career spanned several decades. He was known for his unique country and folk style of singing and at the peak of his career, he performed on several TV specials including concerts at Red Rock Amphitheater and performances with his Rocky Mountain Christmas specials. He developed a great name in music and is one of those artists that most people know and love. If you were to ask a random individual off the street about John Denver, they could probably name at least 5-8 songs from him. His style of music continues to appeal to new generations. John Denver pursued other interests, including painting, photography, skiing and in particular flying. The love of flying was second only to his music. He purchased his first plane in 1974 and continued flying throughout his life. He used his jet to travel to some of his concerts. Unfortunately in 1997, John Denver was involved in a plane crash that took his life near Pacific Grove, California. A music icon was lost that day.

About Dosey Doe

This 165 year old historical structure has been saved for its current purpose. Originally built as a tobacco barn in Kentucky, the 300-600 year old growth oak and birch massive beams are the foundation not only for a beautiful room for also for great acoustics. It is a place where memories are made. No need to run from restaurant to music hall, as here you have it all.

Their entrees are 'cooked from scratch' based on the season, special offerings of purveyors with the type of music of the night in mind. Their task is to offer a meal that would be the reason in and of itself to visit Dosey Doe. The presentation is note worthy and the creations are featured in several Cook Books from Canada to Texas.

Nationally recognized artists from around the world dominate the calendar here: from Jerry Jeff Walker to The Rippingtons, Dave Mason to Lee Roy Parnell, Clint Black to Bela Fleck, Leon Russell to Spyro Gyra, Steve Wariner to Hayes Carll, Roger Creager to Mel Tillis, Manhattan Transfer to Gallagher... up very close and personal. Most artists will stay to have photos taken and give autographs after the show. Many very rarely do it anywhere but here and almost everyone says it is one of their favorite rooms to play.

'I have played them all, big and small, but I have never played a place that sounds as good as Dosey Doe!' - Gary P Nunn

'I will gladly tell anyone that Carnegie Hall cannot compete with Dosey Doe,' - Michael Martin Murphy

'One of my all time top 5 places to have played,' - Marcia Ball

Come early and enjoy the room. Filled with Americana artifacts from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, there is plenty to see. Your hands touching the hand-hewn 2000 lb barn beams, your eyes filled with art, artifacts, signage from a simpler time, your taste buds excited from salad to dessert, and music so pure - up close and personal... all designed to 'Take You Away' and create a memory you will keep.
