Queen City Jazz Band
We are the Queen City Jazz Band
from Denver, Colorado, USA and we play Dixieland Jazz, New Orleans Jazz, Traditional Jazz, Classic Jazz, Hot Jazz or whatever you call it. For over sixty years the QCJB has been delighting audiences with the happy sounds of the 20s, 30s and 40s—Gospel, Early Jazz, Ragtime, Swing, Blues and Spirituals. We have performed at every major Dixieland/Swing jazz festival in North America. We faithfully recreate the music of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, Bix Beiderbecke, Wilbur DeParis, Turk Murphy and many others. Our great singer, Wende Harston, brings to life the great hit songs of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Ethel Waters, Alberta Hunter, Helen Humes and many other early blues singers. Wende’s Gospel style is truly inspiring. Our concert performances never fail to delight listeners of all ages. Our busy schedule abounds with weddings, worship and memorial services, educational clinics, fundraisers and major parties. If the theme of your event is the Roaring Twenties, Mardi Gras, the Great Gatsby, Prohibition, the Jazz Age, Swing Dancing or Ragtime, we are the band for you.
