Blending horns with a young rhythm section, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra will present the best of classic pop music and combine it with a more modern edge to bring a familiar, yet fresh sound to the “family-friendly” concert at 7 p.m. Friday, May 24, at Toccoa Falls College.
With front man Denver Bierman writing and arranging the band’s music, the audience will hear the influences of legends such as Stevie Wonder and Chicago blended with musical styles similar to Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz for a refreshing Big-Band experience.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 the night of the show.
DMHO has headlined numerous festivals, national conventions and state fairs, as well as touring with chart-topping artists such as Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant and Avalon. Members of the band have also played for artists such as Donna Summer, Dan Akroyd, Tower of Power, Guy Lombardo, Ralph Carmichael, Chet Atkins, Wes Montgomery and Debby Boone to name a few.
After 10 years, seven albums and two live-show DVDs, the band has evolved and explored many different musical avenues, but one thing has and will remain unchanged — an unswerving devotion to Jesus Christ, which is transparent in their music.
“Having a career in the music business comes and goes,” Bierman said. “The hope we find in our faith is for an eternity.”
