Purnell Steen & the Five Points Ambassadors: Celebrate a Cool Yule & Joyeux Noël
December 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
Purnell Steen and The Five Points Ambassadors is a band dedicated to playing and preserving the music of Denver’s legendary Five Points neighborhood. The Blues-oriented Hard Bop music is basically Swing style. Their chanteuse, the scintillating Myra Warren, rounds out the ensemble. Having recently spent a week in Denver’s Sister City, Brest, France, for their 2022 Cool Yule & Joyeux Noël Holiday Show they will definitely Swing and Sway the Five Points Way, with maybe a hint of a French accent! The band has performed for many dignitaries, and during the 2008 National Convention, played for the Clintons, and other notables. Purnell is a cousin to Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, George Duke, five-time Grammy Award winner Dianne Reeves, and the legendary 102-year-old bassist Charles Burrell.
This show is part of Dazzle’s large ensemble series, ‘Move To the Music’, with support from a grant by Denver Arts & Venues.
