DENVER — City Park Jazz heads into its 29th season with a great lineup of FREE Sunday concerts in the park. Spanning 10 weeks across June, July and August, the collection of local musicians in this year’s lineup crosses cultures, styles and genres in a way that reflects the musical and cultural diversity of Denver.
“We’re really excited about this year’s slate of amazing performers,” says Bob Nelson, president of the non-profit City Park Jazz Board of Directors. “We open with longtime Denver favorite Selina Albright, we have a very funky newcomer to our stage in The Messers and we’re closing out with the Sammy Mayfield Revue. We’ve got a great, eclectic and culturally diverse mix of bands sprinkled in between.”
We are also announcing our call for entries for our 2015 signature season T-Shirt. This year’s competition is only open to current art students over the age of 13, attending school in Colorado. Entries must be received by 11:59 pm April 30. All entries should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission Requirements: Submissions must be original artwork. Submissions must be high-resolution (300 DPI), and in either a PDF, JPG or EPS format. The City Park Jazz Board of Directors Marketing Committee will select our favorite as the winner. The winner will receive a free T-shirt and $500.
The season runs every Sunday evening starting June 7 from 6–8 p.m. The free concerts are staged at the bandshell in City Park.
