Shows in Hagerstown, MD & York, PA Were AWESOME! Read a few of the great reviews.
On Monday Dec. 13, 2010 my husband and I went to see your show at the Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown, Md. We enjoyed your show greatly! I listen to your radio show every day (Intelligence for your life) when I am commuting to my job which is about an hour's drive. I have learned a lot from your show. Keep up the great work.
Yours truly, Darlene House
Hello John, I was at your concert this evening in Hagerstown, and had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed everyone in the show and loved the music. Especially, the closing song. It was amazing!! The combination of great musicians, the background video, light show and most of all, you John with your creativity. Thank you so very much for a wonderful night.

I attended your show last night in Hagerstown MD. It was wonderful. I listen to you all the time (at work) - school secretary - Musselman Middle School. You give me a lift in the afternoon! I loved the band! "Big Band Sound returns with John Tesh" Merry Christmas. -Sandra Sherrard
Hi John. I just returned from your show in York PA. I correct myself. It was not a show. It was a production; a fabulous production and yet it was also so personal. I loved every minute!! I appreciated what the couple does for veterans. We send money to ReCreation and F.O.R.C.E.S., who travel the country entertaining our veterans in hospitals. You asked that we write you about ministries that we are involved in that help others. I'll give you the shortened version to this amazing story. In January I was reading "If You Want to Walk on Water, You Have to Get Out of the Boat". It told of a man who prayed daily for six months and the miracles God performed through him. The author challenged his readers to also pray daily for six months. After praying for about 2 weeks, God put the word "gumdrops" in my head. As I prayed, I realized that "gumdrops" was an acronym. It took from the end of January until the middle of May for God to give me one letter at a time until the finished acronym was "God & U & Me Divinely Rescuing and Offering Prostitutes Salvation, Safety and Settlement." Amazing huh? Every night I'd go to bed wondering "Is God going to give me a letter tonight?" So far I have an EIN and have applied for my LLC (Limited Liability Company) license. Once I get that, I can apply for my 501(c)(3) to be a non-profit. God has propelled me so far out of my comfort zone, you would hardly believe it's me. But when you get such a specific message that can only be from God, you have to act. I have no idea where the money will come from. I have no idea if the house we are considering will be "the one". I have no idea how to get board members or someone to help me, but since this is God's project, He will supply and He will supply in His perfect timing. If you know of any successful businessman or woman who would be willing to help me, please have them contact me. God works in mysterious ways, and who knows? Maybe God had me come to your concert tonight not only to enjoy a fantabulous performance, but to get help from you. Thanks for listening. P.S. My daughter got turtles for her young children so I so appreciated your info on the health threat that they are so I could warn her.
Great show tonight, can't wait for your "big band" Christmas CD (jazz/big band guy myself....Maynard Ferguson fan for ages and going to see Dave Stahl's christmas show next week in Carlisle PA). Short story.....my wife and I were not originally supposed to be at tonight's show. We saw that you were going to be at the "Strand" when the schedule was released but never got tickets. Fortunately for us, my mother in law had a hip replacement on 11/29 (my wife's birthday) and is not yet feeling up to sitting through a concert....we were the beneficiaries of her misfortune. My wife and I enjoyed the concert so much we can't wait for you to come to the area again.....Christmas or not. Thanks also for being a kind and humble performer......it's very refreshing to see a famous person care so much about others and have a passion for what you (and your staff) can do for the less fortunate. Makes me think about additional things I can do for others. I'll stop rambling now....just still energized after your concert. Thanks again for an enjoyable evening.
Saw your concert in York on Tues. 12/14, 2010- I've seen your concerts on PBS however, sitting in the audience and listening to the show-I realized how talented and non-flashy you are- you have a real connection with the audience and you could feel the admiration and respect---- I didn't know what to expect from your live concert-- I was pleasantly surprised and have a respect for you and your band- I know how hard you must work to get a show together- but for the public it was well worth it-- your ticket prices were relatively cheap in price- and for some who might not otherwise would have missed this concert-- again I commend you for your thoughtfulness--- I listen on Warm 103 and I'm glad you followed your passion---- sorry for this windy e-mail--- I'm half Italian and you know some of us wear our feelings on our sleeve----Again, thanks for a wonderful night--- Good luck in your future endeavors. -Bonnie Blackwell
Dear John, My mom and I went to your show in York, PA last night. Great job! It was so much fun and was a great way to get in the holiday mood. I am 17 years old, a high school senior, and I remember you mentioning Intelligent Kindness during your show. I wanted to tell you about my passion and what I've done voluntarily. I have been an Irish dancer (i.e. Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, etc) for approximately six years now. I competed and did performances with my school. It was not until maybe a year ago that I had to stop practicing, basically, 24/7 because my knee could not take the strain any longer. It was and still is a difficult thing to take because I have loved it so much. However, I have found a solution! My mom is an alum of Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA. I have been homeschooled all my life, except for three years, and she and I have continued to stay connected with Wilson College. Ever since I was in first grade, my mom entered me in their summer day camp for children, ranging from grades K through 8. They, unfortunately, changed the grades from K through 6. I was an 8th grader at the time and was very disappointed to learn that I would not be able to participate since that would have been my last year for the camp. My mom and I decided to contact Wilson College and see if they would allow me to teach an Irish dancing class during that camp. They interviewed me and gave me the job. Well, this upcoming summer will be my fifth summer teaching the Irish dancing class, and I have loved every minute of it. I have never once allowed them to give me my payment. I always volunteered my time. It has been a great "job" but it has been even more rewarding because since the first two years I taught my class, the majority of those same first students have come back every year. Because of this, I had to start two different classes: one for beginners who have not taken my class before and another for my many first-year students. It has been a joy and a great pleasure to be a part of Wilson College's program, and I am so glad to share my story with you. Great show last night, and I look forward to seeing another one in the near future. -Sincerely, Kim
