The Denver Jazz Club Youth All Stars
Come and experience the future of the art of Jazz through the performance of the Denver Jazz Club Youth All Stars! Begun in 2009 by retired Denver, Colorado high school band director Dr. Ed Cannava, the student musicians of the highly selective Denver Jazz Club Youth All Stars are extremely energetic and entertaining. Specializing in New Orleans and Chicago style traditional Jazz, the Youth All Stars also include Pop tunes, vocals, and choreography in some of their arrangements – all from memory.
The band performed on a concert tour to New York City in July, 2014. The All-Stars had an incredible experience performing with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks on two evenings at the Iguana Restaurant & Dance Lounge. Performances also took place on the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier, in Central Park, and in Washington Square (Greenwich Village). Finally, the band had a 4-hour Grand Finale Performance at the Garage Restaurant and Cafe.
Having performed in concert tours for several years to great acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, this past summer, the Denver Jazz Youth All Stars performed in the Montreux, Switzerland Jazz Festival, and in the Assisi Performing Arts Music Festival in Assisi, Italy.
