The Denver Jazz Club Youth All-Stars participated in the Evergreen Jazz Festival Educational Workshops on July 20th and 22nd. The clinicians did a great job in helping our band improve to a higher performance level. Our performances out on the Elk’s Patio on Saturday, 7/22 and Sunday, 7/23 were well received. On Sunday, the band received a standing ovation and the crowd persuaded the All-Stars to perform an encore! The workshop performance at the Lake House on Sunday afternoon with the Queen City Jazz Band was a lot of fun. All the workshop performers had a great time jamming. The All-Stars closed out the set and the crowd showed their appreciation by giving the band another standing ovation! The DJC Youth All-Stars look forward to returning to the Evergreen Jazz Festival in 2011!
We’ll be attending workshops as well as performing. Come check us out on Saturday and Sunday morning on the Elks patio or Sunday afternoon at the Lake House!
We’ll be at the Westminster Elks Club this Sunday, playing between the pro sets. As usual, we should be performing around 4pm. Come on out and enjoy some great music!
The Youth All Stars would like to thank all of you who have supported us in achieving or goal of performing at the 2010 Sacramento Jazz Jubilee! We couldn’t have done it without your tremendous help!
