La Pompe Jazz is a Denver-based gypsy jazz group that fuses eclectic American jazz standards with french ballads, and Django Reinhardt "Hot Club" tunes. With a diverse blend of vocal arrangements and hard swinging instrumentals, La Pompe Jazz has garnered a loyal following of swing dancers.
They've been making their mark with performances at Denver's most popular swing dancing venues such as The Mercury Cafe and the Arvada Tavern and a sold out concert at this winter's 'Speakeasy Soiree'. They have also managed to reach outside the jazz community with notable venues like Ophelia's and great summer festivals like The Denver Flea and The Big Wonderful. La Pompe Jazz is pushing the envelope for what vintage jazz can be and bringing the music alive for a whole new generation.
