On February 3rd, 33 members and guests attended the Silver Star Theater to dine and listen to a John Denver Tribute by Brad Fitch. Brad not only looked the part, but shared some little known facts about John's life and music, as well as singing many of the beloved Denver favorites.
This venue included a varied buffet, with several entrees, and accompaniments, as well as a full salad bar. Soda and drinks were available for purchase and at intermission soft serve cones were offered for $1.00. Beside the tasty food, the folks at Silver Star went out of their way in the name of service. The will call area was maned by young people who gave professional service, with smiles. The wait staff was efficient, helpful, young, and very capable. At the end of the performance, as we filed out, the young wait staff lined the wall and thanked us for attending. Customer service, while a dying art at some venues, was fully apparent at the Silver Star.
There was a great turnout for the this John Denver tribute, The crowd gave him a standing ovation, at the end of the first set, and again at the end of the performance. Many of John Denver favorites quite possibly were shared on our travels back home.
