2020 has been a challenging year for the world, especially so for the musical communities within America - but in times of tremendous adversity, great art arises from struggle much like a phoenix from the ashes.  Bringing music to the Nocturne stage to help us look ahead, the Derek Banach Quintet will perform original, straight ahead compositions by all of its members. The lineup features a number of Denver's finest as they get back on the bandstand after too long a break due to the 2020 pandemic crisis.
