Avi Resort & Casino presents Ted Vigil, a John Denver Tribute artist!
March 1, 2019 – John Denver Tribute Artist, Ted Vigil will be at the Avi Resort & Casino, Saturday, April 20th at 8PM.
Ted is a singer, songwriter and a tribute artist. Born in Seattle and raised in the Olympia area, he has been performing from the age of ten as a drummer and singer.
Vigil has spent the last 10 years paying tribute to the “Sunshine” singer in shows across the country, and even toured with Denver’s former lead guitarist, Steven Weisberg. During his show, Vigil shares a little about his experience touring with Weisberg, who passed away in 2014, and things he learned about Denver while he and Weisberg were on the road. Though Vigil never got to meet Denver, he did meet some of his family, including his mother, and even sang for her.
In 2006 he went on to Laughlin, NV to compete in the Talent Quest 2006 involving 28 states, New Zealand, Australia and Canada taking first place. He then went on to win Komo TV 4's NW Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike contest, and has played twice for John Denver’s own "Windstar Foundation" in Aspen, CO. In 2012 Ted was awarded the Rising Legend Award by the National Traditional Country Music Association. In 2016 Ted was part of the Kings of Country Tour in Australia starring Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and John Denver tribute artists touring 20 cities from coast to coast. Ted now performs internationally and the US, wowing crowds and selling out venues.
