The Flatirons Jazz Orchestra featuring Deborah Stafford
About this pro
Excellent swing dance orchestra! One of the very best in Colorado. Strong players, great charts full classic sound, and Deborah Stafford is terrific. We love having them play the Avalon Ballroom in Boulder. Their last dance drew a decidedly large audience. Their three performances for us to date have all been great, and we will definitely be having them back. Jim Borzym, American Vernacular DanceOct 24, 2016Sticks W.'s reply
Thanks for the awesome review on Thumbtack! I just accidentally asked you for another one. Sorry. Looking forward to our next show, February 18. --Sticks
This is the best band around. The complexity of sound, the energy of the musicians, and the all-around quality of their performance cannot be surpassed! Working with Sticks is a joy. He knows everything about the music, production, and technology to assure a great experience. It's always a joy to work with true professionals.Oct 22, 2016Sticks W.'s reply
Thank you Susan! Your team was fantastic to work with, and we raised $152,000 for the Boulder Philharmonic! --Sticks
