)-- People House, a non-profit that has provided services to the Denver community for more than 40 years, will hold a fundraiser at Dazzle, Denver’s premier jazz venue, on Sunday, November 4, 2018, from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. This second-annual “Gift of Music” fundraiser is organized to help support People House’s effort to keeping mental health care accessible to all. This event will feature three bands, a silent auction and raffle, and special remarks by Andrew Romanoff, former speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives and current CEO of Mental Health Colorado.
“We are overjoyed to once again have the opportunity to raise money for our empowerment programs serving the Denver community – and grateful to Dazzle for hosting the event,” said Lori Ohlson, President of the People House board of directors. “And we are particularly thrilled that Mr. Romanoff, whose leadership makes such an impact on mental health in Colorado, as our special guest speaker.”
Bands performing at Dazzle for this event include:
1) The Wendy Woo Band, a long-time Colorado favorite that has performed at top venues across the country including the Fox Theater and Red Rocks in Colorado, the Bitter End and the Living Room in New York, the Hotel Cafe in Los Angles, the Bluebird Café in Nashville, Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia.
2) The Cody Sisters, just back from a UK tour, excited about the North American release of their brand-new album “White on the Blue."
3) The Lovely and Talented, a special project founded by Denver’s JT Nolan and joined by Matt Skellenger, Paul Hurd and vocalist Robin Sanchez.
Dazzle, voted by Downbeat magazine as one of the top 100 jazz clubs in the world, recently moved into its new location in the historic Baur’s building at 1512 Curtis Street.
