Minor Note Orchestra / Press

“Up next were 3 Kings house-band and Denver crime jazz progenitors, Minor Note Orchestra. Keeping the vibe a bit smoother than the previous act, there was still no lack of energy emanating from a stage that this band owns and knows like few others in town. MNO effortlessly wove their way through an array of instrumental originals that feature tight melodies and intricate solos; peppering their set occasionally with some sultry standards sung by featured vocalist Crystal Lassiter and tenor/baritone sax player, “Hot” Mont Brown.”

“And what better sound for the burlesque atmosphere than a little vintage crime Jazz – oh yeah, the sounds you used to hear emanating from those seedy, smoke-filled backroom bars in the crime dramas of yesteryear.”

“Don't let the name fool you! Pawn Ticket Trio is a powerhouse six piece band, consisting of guitar/vocals, upright bass, drums and three piece horn section, whose genre-straddling originals and sizzling standards always have crowds dancing and singing along. They're coming to Moe's Alley on Wednesday July 14th as part of their summer tour and will be joined by special guests, Of Melting Moons.”

“I’m loving the in-store concerts lately. Just this week, we’ve had bands with a harp, trombone, trumpet, sit-upon percussion box thingy and saxophone. It’s been quite lively. Yesterday’s in-store band was Pawn Ticket Trio (there were six of them, but who’s counting?), out of Colorado. They had toes a-tapping and heads a-turning with their jazz-meets-ska-band funky sounds. Here’s the evidence of their show in Streetlight Records: ”
