June Swaner Gates Concert Hall

New Orleans old-school jazz comes to Denver with the Uptown Orchestra. Under the direction of trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, and anchored by Dirty Dozen Brass Band founder Roger Lewis on bari sax, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra celebrates the musical heritage  of New Orleans, performing blues and standards that combine riff-playing, spontaneous arrangements and the New Orleans second-line groove.
