Joe Smith and the Spicy Pickles Jazz Band is a Denver-based vintage jazz band dedicated to swing music and dance. This small group style swing band packs a punch of power, personality, and wit into each show, intriguing generations new and old with the beloved charm of big band swing from the late 30’s and early 40’s. The Pickles bring it all – high energy, quality musicianship, and an authentic big band sound and look that celebrate the unique American spirit of swing. The band fuses musical influences from the sounds of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw with the showmanship of Louis Armstrong, Lucky Millinder, and Jimmy Lunceford. With a smart respect for the preservation of vintage jazz music and entertainment, the Pickles are constantly adding new and original tunes to their repertoire. They bring a unique visual flair to each performance with gimmicks, tricks, horn movements, and hat work inspired to captivate audiences all night long.

Please join us for what will not doubt be a remarkable evening!

Dance lesson at 7 PM. Beginners and experienced dancers all welcome.

Live music 8 to 11 PM.

$15 general admission, cash or check at the door. All ages.
