Denver Eclectic Concerts premise is simple. It is eclectic quality, carefully curated.
That’s more to us than just a cute alliteration. It is the driving force behind every artist we host, and it’s the belief that even though cream rises to the top it still may need to be thoughtfully and artfully presented.
Denver has a new abundance of choices when it comes to music. What gets us excited, what really leads our decisions is the belief that content is more important than form, that how you look, how young or old, how new or established is not nearly as important as how you touch people with your music.
Our simple biased belief is that handmade music does this better than any other music. And we know that Denver has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to thoughtful, expert musicians. We want you to come hear them, talk to them in a more informal setting. We think you’ll find out why the music salons in days of old were such exciting incubators of creativity. It surely had something to do with the amount of personal connection between the creators and their audience.
Denver Eclectic, proud sponsor of our artists, in our city, a “City on the Rise”.
