EVENTS: “Piano Player of the Year” Victor Wainwright Brings Honky Tonk Boogie and Blues to Dazzle at Baur’s on Sunday, November 12th
Music Appreciation Society brings an electrifying evening of blues to Dazzle at Baur’s when 2017 Blues Music Award Winner “Piano Player of the Year,” Victor Wainwright, takes the stage for two extraordinary shows: Sunday, November 12th, 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. This event is the Denver Premier for Wainwright, who American Blues Scene describes as: “… a force to be reckoned with on a piano. He IS honky-tonk and boogie with a dose of rolling thunder.”
Music Appreciation Society (MAS) is a Colorado non-profit that exists to bring a variety of world class music to Denver, having previously presented the likes of Ellis Marsalis, Catherine Russell, Jason Moran and Eric Andersen as well as other renowned artists including Denver Westword’s “Best Chamber Orchestra” Grande Orquesta Navarre. MAS is happy to present Wainwright who “… serves as an electrifying guide to a good time – spinning tales, telling his listeners how to beat the blues, and meticulously conjuring raw soul and energy out of his acoustic piano,” according to Living Blues Magazine. An unprecedented five-time winner of “The Pinetop Perkins Award,” Wainwright has also been named “BB King entertainer of the Year” (2016).
Food and drinks from the renowned Dazzle restaurant are available throughout the evening. Dazzle at Baur’s is located at 1512 Curtis Street in the heart of downtown Denver.
