- 2017 Big Band Boogie Bash!
February 25, 2017
1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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 annual day-long festival of big band music takes place on Saturday, February 25th this year from 1-8pm. Tickets are $16 GA and $12 Students & Seniors (60+)
