MY BANDS

The Deborah Stafford Trio, Quartet, & Quintet

My Jazz Quintet plays a great mix of Jazz Standards and Jazzy Blues and we are happy to curate the song list to make it perfect for your event. The Quintet consists of piano, bass, drums, vocals and sax. But if you have space or budget constraints, we can trim it down to a Quartet or even a Trio. We play all over the front range. We also do theme events such as "Gatsby" or Roaring 20's Parties, WWII Events with 1940's style music or whatever you dream up. Just let me know what feel you want for the evening.

Deborah Stafford and her award-winning Blues Band, The State of Affairs, have had a pretty good year. They were chosen to represent Mile High Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis,  They got a nod for best self-produced CD and made their first music video. They were nominated for 3 "Members Choice" awards by Colorado Blues Society including Favorite Band and Best Songwriting. Deborah was asked to sing in the Women in the Blues Showcase and just last month the band got to open for Buddy Guy. Not bad for the Blues!
