Augustana Arts Proudly Presents... Neil Bridge's Group "Quintessence!" featuring Vocalist Karen Lee! and Guitarist Wayne Wilkinson! Ron Bland on Bass, and Todd Reid on Drums.
Come on down to Augustana's first level hall and be transformed by a cabaret setup and vibrant summertime music from five of Colorado's Greatest Jazz Musicians. Let the spirit move you as Neil, one of Colorado's own Legendary Jazz Pianists, arranger, composer and beloved former DPS Music Educators, his wife Karen Lee, and their group, perform music from The Great American Songbook plus more! (let’s call it a concert with a little dancing on the side).
Enjoy refreshments, while you feed your soul with great music. The Bridge's bring their passion to a repertoire of Swing, Latin, Ballroom and Classic Jazz.
"NEIL has upheld the highest standards in musicianship and music education... as well as swinging without remorse! Truly a long time giant of Denver's Jazz Scene, Neil and his muse, Karen Lee, will remind you with his classic arrangements and impeccable taste, of why we love this most American of music styles." Ricky Rodriguez Denver City Park Jazz Festival 2013
All proceeds raised from the purchase of the tasty refreshments will go toward bringing music opportunity to young people in the metro Denver area.
