Two performances at 6:30pm and 9pm.
Celebrating Black History Month – Special Guest Artist-Sheryl Renee
Purnell Steen and The Five Points Ambassadors (also known as LeJazz Machine) is a band dedicated to playing and preserving the music of Denver’s legendary Five Points neighborhood. The Blues-oriented Hard Bop music is basically Swing style. And Denver’s own scintillating Myra Warren rounds out the ensemble. For their annual show in Celebration of Black History Month, they will definitely Swing and Sway the Five Points Way, and, ever the storyteller, Purnell will share the histories of Black artists who have worked and played in Five Points.
Purnell Steen and the Five Points Ambassadors have been chosen to tour France in 2022 starting with our Sister City, Brest, and continuing throughout France. They have performed for many dignitaries, and during the 2008 National Convention, played for the Clintons and other notables. Purnell is a cousin to Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, George Duke, five-time Grammy Award winner Dianne Reeves, and the legendary bassist Charlie Burrell.
