Conserve the land - Boogie with The Hazel Miller Band! Benefit concert Friday, July 24
The Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas invites the community to what is sure to be an exciting night of entertainment, as powerhouse singer Hazel Miller and The Hazel Miller Band put on a lively performance on Friday, July 24, at the SteamPlant to benefit the Land Trust.
Denver artist Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, she has been called “A force of nature” by the Rocky Mountain News. Performing an eclectic blend of jazz, R&B, Blues and original music that is designed to make audiences sing and dance along, The Hazel Miller Band’s shows are popular at festivals and special events throughout Colorado and beyond.
Hazel Miller has been a sought-after performer for three decades. She has been named one of Denver’s 150 Unsung Heroes, and the band was voted Best Band in Colorado by the North Colorado Press Organization. This year, Ms. Miller sang the National Anthem at the inauguration of Gov. John Hickenlooper, and the band performed at the FIS Alpine Ski Championships in Beaver Creek, which drew a television audience of 180,000. Ms. Miller has performed many times with Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and her music is heard on local radio stations throughout Colorado. Hear the music at www.hazelmiller.biz.
“The Land Trust is anticipating this will be one of the most memorable night of the year,” said Andrew Mackie, Executive Director of the Land Trust. “We hope Hazel will consider coming back each year and helping us support the Land Trust’s work. I hope everyone will dig out their dancing shoes and boogie with us at the SteamPlant. We deeply thank Hazel and her band for supporting the Land Trust’s efforts to raise funds for land conservation and restoration in the Arkansas River Valley.”
