Denver and the Mile High Orchestra is a horn driven pop band from Nashville, TN. With influences ranging from horn bands such as Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, and Blood Sweat and Tears along with timeless songwriters like Billy Joel and Huey Lewis, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra seek to take the best of classic pop music and combine it with a more modern edge to provide listeners with a familiar, yet fresh sound. With a 7 piece horn section, 4 piece rhythm section and led by vocalist Denver Bierman, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra have been traveling all over the United States and the world since 1999, playing energy packed concerts to a fan base of all ages, ranging from 5 to 75. To date, they have released 7 records as well as a live DVD, with a new recording planned for 2008. Furthermore, you may have seen them on TV recently, as they were a top 3 finalist on Fox's "The Next Great American Band." Formed by a group of friends at Nashville's Belmont University in 1999, this exceptional group of musicians is comprised of three trumpet players, three saxophone players, two trombone players and a rhythm section. In the five years since their inception, the group has traveled around the globe, performing at churches, conferences, festivals--even at the Olympics--taking their electrifying horn driven sound to the masses. The big band sound of the 30's and 40's had long intrigued Denver, who had played the trumpet for 16 years , so he assembled a group of musicians--friends to reinvent the style for the modern age. "I grew up listening to hip-hop, rock and pop, to all those genres," says Denver, who is also the group's lead vocalist and music arranger. "So I wanted to take the best of today and the best of yesterday and mix 'em up."
