The Denver Jazz Orchestra Presents: A Night in Vegas
Fri, March 24, 2017
7:00 pmDazzle Jazz
Close your eyes and take a trip back in time...to Las Vegas,1966. Vegas is still about class, style, cocktails, good food, and dressing up and the Vegas casino shows are all about listening to some of the best big band music ever.
Denver's premier 17-piece big band, the Denver Jazz Orchestra (DJO), will be dressed in black tie and re-create a vintage big-band set featuring the hits of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tom Jones, Wayne Newton, Louis Prima with even a little Elvis thrown in!
The DJO has secured these classic big band arrangements, including songs from the iconic live recording of Sinatra at the Sands: I Got You Under my Skin, the Best is Yet to Come, Luck Be A Lady, Come Fly With Me and many, many others! Featuring vocalist/trumpeter extraordinaire Chris Lawson and a special guest artist, this will be a show you won't want to miss!http://dazzlejazz.ticketfly.com/event/1441543/
The 16-piece DJO is comprised of Denver's finest top shelf jazz musicians including alumni from many of the major touring big bands. The DJO honors but expands the tradition and the unique sound of the American big band with arrangements from the library of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Stan Kenton and Woody Herman as well as featuring contemporary latin, funk and fusion arrangements from Maynard Ferguson, Jaco Pastorius, Tito Puente and others.
We invite you to come experience and enjoy your home-grown Denver Jazz Orchestra!
