Music

Our acoustically designed room in the heart of Denver plays host to live jazz nightly (Wednesday through Sunday). Check the calendar below for set times as they may vary. Nocturne’s distinctive Artist in Residency programming is at the core of our line up. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in a four- to eight-week run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a jazz genre, or the exhibition of an Artist's own original work. 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. Nocturne is proud to be the only venue in Colorado that features jazz exclusively, and we are also pleased to feature national touring artists on special occasions.

ABOUT LIVE MUSIC AT NOCTURNE:

Reservations are strongly recommended for either music set. By reserving your seat for dinner and a show you can enjoy the live music along with a three course menu by our talented culinary team. You can make a reservation on-line or via phone @ 303.295.3333.

Supporting the musicians practicing their craft on our stage is important to us - your prepaid dinner reservation includes the artist fees that support fair pay to our music community. You can support in other ways such as purchasing music online, physical CD's or sending Venmo tips to your favorite artists. The music community is strong but still working to rebound from a lot of cancelled gigs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support of their craft will keep this art form alive.

Dave Devine Quintet: Rome and Beyond

This special set of shows are inspired by the album "Rome" by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi. Rome is a "soundtrack without a movie" with music that draws heavily on the whimsical styles of the Spaghetti Western films from the 1960's ( the more famous having been directed by Segio Leone and Sergio Corbucci, and scored by Ennio Morricone). Twangy electric guitar, mournful nylon string guitar, epic haunting vocals, groovy beats and all the trappings of this evocative orchestration and unique sound.  Supplementing the works from Rome, the quintet will also perform selections from Ennio Morricone scores from the original films.  Featured personnel: Patrick Lee (piano), Julia Mendiolea (bass), Tania Katz Sinon (vox), Braxton Kahn (drums)
