Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom
As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to ravage the live music industry, venues like Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom & The Other Side in Denver, CO struggled to come up with ways of staying afloat while engaging our lifelong patrons. Knowing that Colorado hosts an abundance of uber-talented graphic designers, we launched a design contest with cash prizes for new Cervantes’ merchandise designs.
This will be the first time Rob Eaton & John Kadlecik have played together since John K left Dark Star Orchestra to play with Furthur in Fall 2009!
Imagine a world where we’re back to dancing to live music! This reality might seem a bit far away, and that’s why our friends that work in the live event industry need your support through this intermission. Their specialized skill sets do not apply to other industries and with unemployment being high right now, they’re unable to find another source of income. So far, Positive Legacy has raised and distributed over $65,000 to live event industry workers to help provide support for rent, groceries and utilities.
Colorado’s very own explosive progressive rock outfit Eminence Ensemble has announced two special Halloween shows at Denver’s Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom with special guest, keyboardist Todd Stoops.
In true Eminence Ensemble fashion, each show set list will be carefully curated fusing elements of rock, jazz, electronic, metal, funk, and hip-hop to create an intricate, psychedelic experience for the holiday celebration.
I had originally started this review with a cute anecdote. It’s kind of my thing, and everybody else’s. But I’m going to cut straight to it. This was fucking insane. Oh. Was my use of fuck in the fourth sentence a bit too much for you? Then why in a flying fuck would you be reading a review of Andy Frasco and The U.N.? I ask again, why in a flying fuck? Keeping you from feeling comfortable comes as easy to Andy and his band as it does to a leather couch on a humid day. So, don’t come to me looking for a run of the mill review of a run of the mill show. Andy Frasco and The U.N.
Hello Friends of Cervantes'!
As you know, all venues, restaurants and bars in Colorado are now closed through May 11 to help contain the spread of Covid-19. Our awesome & dedicated staff are suddenly out of work & will need money for rent, food, utilities, healthcare, etc. Any amount you can give will be divided among all of our staff: door staff, production, bartenders, bar backs and box office.
In the meantime, stay safe, healthy and support the local musicians who are doing live streams and lessons online.
