Our stage and acoustically designed room plays host to live jazz nightly 7 PM -10:30 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. Although Nocturne hosts both local and national talent, Nocturne’s distinctive Artist in Residency programming is at the core of our lineup. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in an eight week performance run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a particular era or genre of jazz, or their own original works. This old-school approach to programming combines the unique opportunity to hone one’s craft with regular stage time, while also establishing an elevated rapport with Denver music fans.
ABOUT LIVE MUSIC AT NOCTURNE:
To experience a nightly Artist in Residence performance, reservations are encouraged. You can make a reservation on-line or via phone @ 303.295.3333.
In addition to formal reservations, we also hold a number of seats aside for nightly walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Supporting the musicians practicing their craft on our stage is important to us - we have an artist fee that ranges from $5 to $20 per person per night (for Artists in Residence) that is applied to all guest checks at the conclusion of an evening. These artist fees directly fund all the live music heard at Nocturne. Please check the calendar below for each night's artist fee pricing.
On Friday and Saturday nights, our late night sessions are typically from 11:00pm to 12:30am and feature solo artists, duos, or trios - exploring a variety of sounds within the jazz idiom, from traditional to funky.
