Denver Jazz Quartet
Ralph Nichols, former member of the Lettermen, has one of the finest singing voices and entertaining styles in the business. A veteran of both The Sandpipers of Guantanamera fame, and The Lettermen, Nichols has over 5000 professional stage appearances under his belt. He has performed before Popes, Royalty, and has done private appearances for such notables as Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Merv Griffin, Roslyn Russell, John Davidson, Danny Thomas, John Elway, and Ronald Reagan…to mention a few.
Recently off a two year stint on the largest ships in the world with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Nichols is available for private functions, here in Colorado or across the country. Nichols also possesses tremendous versatility. He can come packaged as a fully self contained single entertainer equipped with keyboard, guitar and digital backgrounds, or as a stand-up show with either a Jazz ensemble or digital backgrounds. No matter what format you may choose, Nichols comes to deliver a powerful entertaining experience.
While working for years as side-men in various groups, these four Denver-area musicians decided to form a working quartet in the late 90's which has transformed into one of the most sought after jazz ensembles in the Denver Metro area. The Denver Jazz Quartet performs all the jazz standards including Latin jazz, mainstream, swing, ballads and blues.
The Denver Jazz Quartet performs at a variety of venues from small to large, from live corporate entertainment to club dates to jazz festivals. They were the featured jazz group at the Queenstown International Jazz Festival in Queenstown, New Zealand in October, 2003 in celebration of their 25th anniversary.
The group performs primarily as an instrumental jazz quartet or sometimes as a jazz trio. The Denver Jazz Quartet can also be augmented by adding another instrument or a vocalist. The DJQ has performed with some of the finest jazz singers both locally and nationally. For more information and availability, please call (303) 674-9060.
