Live For Live Music in partnership with AEG has announced that Denver Comes Alive will return to the Mission Ballroom in Denver, Colo. The celebration marks the event’s second annual celebration and will commence on Dec. 4.
Denver Comes Alive is a full day of live sets and unique projects featuring a wide array of live music greats. The event was inspired by the live music culture of New Orleans and its famed Jazz & Heritage Festival and promises to deliver a mix of never-before-seen collaborations and touring bands.
In true “Comes Alive” style the event will feature the premiere of a new band, Ramble On Revival. The ensemble is made up by Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company), Steve Kimock (Phil Lesh & Friends), Eric Krasno (Soulive), Holly Bowling (Ghost Light), Jeff Sipe (Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit), Skerik and Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band). The musicians are set to play a set seeped in the spirit of the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers Band and more.
Along with Ramble On Revival, the event will also feature Grammy-nominated New Orleans soul/funk/jazz/hip-hop/spoken word outfit Tank and the Bangas, beloved instrumental band Circles Around the Sun and former Prince and Michael Jackson collaborator Judith Hill. The event will be hosted by SiriusXM’s Ari Fink and also feature DJ Logic who will perform between sets. In addition to all that, there will also be live painting and a pop-up gallery by beloved New Orleans artist Frenchy.
