After Midnight plays CCAH show

Special to the Post Independent After Midnight, a six-piece swing jazz band from Denver, plays at 6 p.m. today at Sopris Park in Carbondale.

The third free concert in the Summer of Music series brings Denver swing band After Midnight to Sopris Park at 6 tonight.

After Midnight is Denver’s hottest “swingtet,” modeled after Benny Goodman’s popular small-band sound of the 1930s and ’40s but still relevant today.

The band has performed at clubs and festivals worldwide with Natalie Cole, Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry and the Preservation Hall Jazz band, playing a mixture of swing, jazz, Latin and blues.

“Our repertoire includes music made famous by the likes of Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Jelly Roll Morton, Benny Goodman, and more,” according to the band’s Web site. “We are well known for our exciting blend of jazz, swing, and blues.”

The band features Roger Campbell on clarinet, Ced Forsyth on bass, Greg Harris on vibraphone, Mike McCullough on guitar, Jim Moore on drums, vocalist Rekha Ohal and Bill Stephens on keyboards.

The Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities sponsors the concert series.
