The 10th annual Five Points Jazz Festival was a blast! “Once characterized as the “Harlem of the West” Five Points was a jazz mecca for legends such as Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and Count Basie to name a few.” This year’s festival featured Denver’s own Hazel Miller and a raft of the finest Jazz music, historical exhibits, lectures and much, much fun!
What a great time! The organizers were really great and all of the event guests were very kind, appreciative and respectful. This was my first “working event’ with Colorado Clowns, and I was really impressed, once again, by the amazing skill and talent we have in the alley. Thanks for organizing this for us, Bill (and Darryl!).
Denver Water was present doing outreach and education on the importance of water conservation during our drought.
It was a very last minute decision to bring Luigi’s fresh seafood out to play. Choosing which costume to wear, or which character to bring to the festival playground can be fraught with indecision and hesitation. In this case stalking the right costume ended in outrageous success. From the moment I stepped out, folks were asking about Luigi’s Restaurant, and where they could find it! I didn’t have the heart to tell them it was a a fraud and a figment of my imagination, and resorted to instructing them to look for luigi’s Restaurant at the next festival!
One of my students, “the Calvinater” made an appearance as well.
