Bemus Point United Methodist Church is bringing Denver and the Mile High Orchestra to the Reg Lenna Civic Center on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. This return visit to the Jamestown area provides an evening of faith and fun as DMHO brings their "Timeless Christmas Tour" to the community and kicks off the Christmas season.
With Denver Bierman writing and arranging the band's music, the diverse sounds of legends such as Stevie Wonder and Chicago blend with musical influences like Maroon 5, and Jason Mraz for a refreshing look at contemporary pop and Christian music.
Beginning in 1999, Denver Bierman and his merry band of musicians that would come to be known as the Mile High Orchestra were putting together an act that would take them across the globe. The group of Belmont University students took the music they loved and combined it with a hot, pop style, mixed in a slick tight stage show and took it on the road.
Pictured above are Denver Bierman and members of the Mile High Orchestra. The group will perform in concert on Nov. 28 at the Reg Lenna Civic Center.
"The first show we performed was for 28 people," said Denver Bierman, the creative force behind Denver and the Mile High Orchestra. "It wasn't the hottest ticket in Nashville that night, but there was free coffee and cheesecake. That's one thing - in the beginning I told my guys, I may not be able to pay you but there will be dessert."
The band has come a long way from those humble beginnings to network TV.
Denver and the Mile High Orchestra wowed all of America, as they made the finale of the "American Idol" spin off "The Next Great American Band." They've garnered praise and a devoted fan base from Greece to Hollywood, having played the Summer Olympics in Athens, and the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
