Jazz on 2nd Ave is a world-class jazz event in Niwot, Colorado, a quaint little town tucked between Boulder and Longmont in Boulder County. We are a sponsor for this year's event, and we are excited for jazz fans as they listen to internationally known jazz greats in genres including contemporary jazz, Latin, funk, fusion, traditional, and big band jazz.
Produced by the Colorado Jazz Group, a 501(c)3 non-profit, all proceeds from this event go back into outreach and & inspiration for the next generation of jazz musicians. It's run by Front Range residents for Front Range residents. The mission of the Colorado Jazz Group is to reach new generations and inspire them to love one of the greatest of American musical traditions. Concert goers will be able to get food and drink from Cocktail Caravan, McDevitt Taco Supply, Sweet Cow, Umami Mobile Eatery and Steuben’s Food Truck, and there will be live art from local artists. It's a truly community oriented event, and we are proud to be listed with the other great sponsors in the local area.
Partnering with local & international artists, the Colorado Jazz Group serves Front Range schools and offers jazz education free of charge. In 2017 a partnership with the Vail Jazz Goes to School program brought a successful 19-year curriculum to three area elementary schools (Niwot Elementary, Sacred Heart of Boulder and Ryan Elementary). For us, sponsoring the Colorado Jazz Group puts us in the hearts & minds of the thousands of Front Range citizens, and we get to experience something we love: live music.
If you're in the area, this weekend, swing through Niwot, just off the Diagonal Highway in Boulder County.
