Dave Devine Quintet: Rome and Beyond

All day

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)


Hailed as “Denver’s Guitar Guru” by Westword Magazine, guitarist, composer, and educator Dave Devine is known for his virtuosity as a performer, dramatic versatility as an artist. Devine’s recording projects have ranged from experimental jazz (momen terra, Static Trio) and chamber pop (Greybird, Delby L), to jazz metal (Hate Camels), ambient (Mountain Coast), and art rock (DOORS THAT DON’T)./  Devine has also recorded/performed with Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band (Body and Shadow, Blue Note), John Grant and the Czars (Sorry I Made You Cry, Bella Union) Art Lande, The Barr Brothers, Chuck Prophet, Marc Broussard, Elliott Sharp, Ron Miles, Matt Wilson, Ben Goldberg, and Neil Halstead among others. In addition to his renowned work on stage, Devine is also an educator at heart and is the Co-Director of the Jazz and American Improvised Music program at Metropolitan State University of Denver, where he has taught since 2002.
