Just nominated by Westword Magazine as one of the best jazz bands on the front range, La Pompe Jazz's notable performances include the Five Points Jazz Festival, Westword Music Showcase, The People's Fair, and 1940’s Ball.
The third annual Speakeasy Soiree provides La Pompe Jazz the opportunity to collaborate with the best Front Range swing musicians starting with the darling of Denver swing, Sweet B, bringing her distinctive and soulful voice to the stage. Then there is Jeremy Mohney, Boulder based saxophonist, vocalist, bandleader, and composer bringing the Hot Jazz! Plus, Jill Frederickson, drummer, will be rounding out the rhythm section with her impeccable groove.
Gazella is a real-life Las Vegas Showgirl who high-kicked her way into the principal role of the world-famous showgirl spectacular, Jubilee! Gazella has performed her original works all over America and can frequently be seen in the spotlight as one of the stars of the famous Denver venue, The Clocktower Cabaret.

La Pompe Jazz wants an event that brings swing music and vintage gypsy jazz to the masses! Swingin Denver has a tremendous passion for the music and swing dance and wants to promote this art form. The theme is all things Vintage.
There is no specific dress that will be turned away but we do encourage period vintage attire from the 1920's-40's. Check out our Facebook for some tips!
La Pompe does not start until after the Charleston lesson. There will be DJ'd music before. La Pompe will end between 11:30/12.
The VIP lounge will have more comfortable seating, and direct access to the bar. The Early Access time is really for people to beat the registration line if that gets long. The food is being catered by Comida, featuring wonderful fresh contemporary Mexican food. The cocktail will be either a vodka/gin cocktail or Whistle Pig cocktail. We will also be doing complimentary 12 year rye tastings. Swingin' Denver's gift certificate is for $15 dollars to be used for their dance classes. Also, La Pompe Jazz will be giving signed copies of their latest EP.
