  1. I like your blog – just discovered it today. Interesting coincidence is that I noticed in one of your pieces you mentioned Dave Goldberg’s article about venues, which I just read yesterday while going through some of my CDBaby mail.

    Anyway, considering Goldberg is a jazz guy, he’d probably like to play Dazzle Lounge when he’s in Denver. They actually do a pretty good job of curating their musical calendar, so people often show up already knowing the musical talent will be of a high caliber. I remember in Goldberg’s article, wishing venues would take responsibility for building their own following by keeping the quality of music performers they hire high was one of the main points he made. They’re probably not perfect…what venue is?…but Dazzle is certainly worth including on your list of Denver original music venues. -StFo

    • Thanks for stopping by, Steve! And thank you for pointing out that oversight – I will definitely include Dazzle on our venue list. (Sometimes I get so caught up in the indie rock scene & forget about the professionals…)

      Yes, Dazzle is an awesome venue & they respect every musician that walks through their doors. Donald Rossa (owner) often introduces an act, asking the audience to kill those cell phones, minimize the chatter & give their full attention to the reason they came there – professional, beautiful music.

      Donald is also an avid supporter of the homelessness cause. He has helped my nonprofit, Musicians In Action, and supported many, many artists along the way. Cheers!
