In an era where the jazz industry's seemingly greatest fear is extinction by the threat of a graying audience, the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts (CCJA) is doing everything they can to grow new audiences and train young jazz musicians in the art form. One of the many ways they achieve this is by hosting the Big Band Boogie Bash, where six college bands and three high school groups come together to participate in a one-of-a-kind day-long big band festival. Beginning back in the 1970's and originally featuring a lineup of professional groups, CCJA has re-invented and rejuvenated it with a fresh focus on the youth of the music.
The 2014 Big Band Boogie Bash features the following lineup:
1:00 University of Northern Colorado Lab 1 2:00 Metropolitan State University Jazz Ensemble 1 3:00 Legend High School Jazz Ensemble 3:45 University of Denver Lamont Jazz Orchestra 4:45 University of Colorado-Boulder Jazz Ensemble 2 5:45 Colorado State University Jazz Ensemble 1 6:45 Denver School of the Arts Jazz Workshop Orchestra 7:30 CCJA Jazz Arts Messengers
The Big Band Boogie Bash will feature a silent auction run by CCJA's board of directors, featuring items such as passes to the Telluride, Jazz Aspen, and Vail Jazz Festivals.
Tickets to the Bash are $15 general admission, and $10 students / 55+, and allow you to stay for as long as you'd like. Tickets are available at the door as well as online at: jazzarts.org
