ANN KOROLOGOS GALLERY – LAPOMPE
The tradition of gypsy jazz is alive and well in Colorado. Denver based LAPOMPE combines rustic gypsy swing with vintage blues and soulful originals to create a unique sound and style. The string quartet features two guitars, vocals, upright bass and violin and crafts a musical pulse full of energy and excitement. The band has been nominated by multiple publications for best jazz band on the front range and won the 2017 Producers Choice award at the Westword Music Showcase. With that, on top of headlining spots at City Park Jazz and the Speakeasy Soiree, and a prestigious recurring weekly gig at Denver’s Union Station, LAPOMPE is quickly becoming “Denver’s Jazz Band”.
Their debut all-original album, slated for national release on June 5th 2019, is recorded by Mighty Fine Productions and mastered with Grammy award winning David Glasser. By combining their love of gypsy jazz with the diverse musical influences of each band member, LAPOMPE has managed to cultivate a sound that is both fresh and steeped in tradition.
