Join the Band

We are always looking for musicians to join our groups. 
Pull that horn out of the closet and come play jazz in Denver with us!"

All groups are comprised of standard Big Band and Jazz Combo Instrumentation:

  • Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones with occasional doubling on Soprano Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet.
  • Trombone and Bass Trombone
  • Trumpet with doubling on Flugel Horn
  • Piano
  • Bass
  • Drumset
  • Guitar

All members are people that are doing something else - have another profession, but still love to play music.

Inspite of this, our music quality standards are high because of the enthusiasm of the members and the directors that come from the jazz education community.
