"Best John Denver tribute ever. Close your eyes & you will think you are listening to John Denver himself. I had the great privilege of hearing Wayne aboard MV Oriana last December and was most impressed especially with the rendition of Calypso which was indistinguishable from the real John Denver. A concert on board ship never to be forgotten". - Chris Robinson

"Just seen the most wonderful concert at the Basingstoke Haymarket. What a fabulous evening of nostalgia, superb songs expertly sung by a great performer and his musicians, thank you, JD would have been very proud. The sad fact is I could remember all the words to just about every song. Looking forward to the next time already!" - Alan Matthews

"Hi Wayne just wanted to thank you and your musicians for a wonderful evening of nostalgia. The show was uplifting and at times really moving. I remember being really sad to hear the news that John had died as he was very much part of my era and your rendition of his songs brought back many lovely memories. Thanks again". - Marilyn Hunter
