Denver Vintage Jazz Festival is THREE nights of world-class music held in the Mile-High City of Denver presented by Community Minded Dance (CMDance) at The Studio Loft at Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver, CO.

CMDance is proud to host this annual event with live music of the Jazz Era (1920s-40s), starring nationally acclaimed artist Charles Turner and his NYC Jazz Band and also featuring Joe Smith and the Spicy Pickles Jazz Band.

Charles Turner – The Brooklyn-based Jazz vocalist, composer, and educator has quite the impressive repertoire. His critically acclaimed album “Single & In Love” was produced by Grammy award-winning drummer Ulysses Owens Jr. The Berklee College of Music graduate has taught in schools including The American School of Modern Music and NYU and has recorded interviews with Jazz FM and Birdland Jazz Club, just to name a few.

Joe Smith and The Spicy Pickles – This band likes to captivate their audiences with their performances. The Denver-based group has released several albums including “Extra Spicy” and “Rocky Mountain High”. Their music has been used in commercials and film.

This event runs concurrently with Lindy on the Rocks, a vintage swing dance festival, and passes are also still available for classes. See full details, purchase tickets, or make a donation to support our school programs via our website: https://www.cmdance.org
