Partnering with Dazzle was a natural choice to preserve El Chapultepec’s Legacy. For nearly three decades Dazzle has co-existed in Denver’s Jazz scene with El Chapultepec.

While providing vastly different musical experiences, Dazzle and El Chapultepec share the same passion to provide stages for diverse groups of artists to share their craft with listeners. Dazzle gives space to a variety of local, national, and international touring acts to showcase their original work at ticketed events. El Chapultepec is more well-known as being a space for musical improvisation and surprise sit-ins, come as you are and no cover charge. Dazzle’s newest location in the Denver Performing Arts Complex is an opportunity to bring both philosophies to one beautiful new space, surrounded by arts and creativity. Including the El Chapultepec Legacy Collection, an installment by artist Shay Guerrero, commissioned by Deborah and Jim Frank. These paintings honor the Hispanic and Chicano influences on jazz in Colorado.

  • “With Love, Freddy Rodriguez Sr.”
  • “With Love, Carlos Lando”
  • “With Love, Jerry Krantz”
  • “With Love, Flo Hernandez-Ramos”
  • “With Love, Tina Cartagena”
  • “With Love, Arturo Gomez”

The title, “With Love”, symbolizes the gifts each of these individuals have put out into the world, their love letters to the community.

Dazzle will continue their format with a stellar line-up and evening sets.

El Chapultepec Piano Bar at Dazzle plans to host “The Late Set” from 11pm – 1am Thurs, Fri, Sat nights starting in the fall. It will feature a variety of The Pec favorite bands. Keeping the legacy alive by hosting talented artists and ensuring live music is accessible to all with no-cover charge. The goal is to capture the essence of the Pec’s music experience, not duplicate the original.

It’s a great space to get a night cap after the Dazzle shows, a DCPA performance, or another gig.
