Mercury Cafe-January 8 from Rudy

A note from our recent gig at Atonement Lutheran:

Dear Bill: 

Thank you all  so much for playing and singing for us last Sunday.  Everyone I spoke to was just bowled over by your wonderful performance, and 

the happiness you brought to our service.  I personally saw one older gentleman who could barely move along, bent over on his walker.  He was, however, able to 

make the effort to stand and clap (as best he could) to your music, and he left with an ear-to-ear grin! 

Thank you so much for bringing so much joy to Atonement!

We are the Queen City Jazz Band

from Denver, Colorado, USA and we play Dixieland Jazz, New Orleans Jazz, Traditional Jazz, Classic Jazz, Hot Jazz or whatever you call it.  For over sixty years the QCJB has been delighting audiences with the happy sounds of the 20s, 30s and 40s—Gospel, Early Jazz, Ragtime, Swing, Blues and Spirituals. We have performed at every major Dixieland/Swing jazz festival in North America. We faithfully recreate the music of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, Bix Beiderbecke, Wilbur DeParis, Turk Murphy and many others. Our great singer, Wende Harston, brings to life the great hit songs of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Ethel Waters, Alberta Hunter, Helen Humes and many other early blues singers. Wende’s Gospel style is truly inspiring. Our concert performances never fail to delight listeners of all ages.  Our busy schedule abounds with weddings, worship and memorial services, educational clinics, fundraisers and major parties.  If the theme of your event is the Roaring Twenties, Mardi Gras, the Great Gatsby, Prohibition, the Jazz Age, Swing Dancing or Ragtime, we are the band for you.

We Have Evolved


We celebrated our 60th anniversary in 2018.  In the past twelve years, we have added two new players and our band has evolved in two important ways.  First, we are playing to young adults who pack the dance floors jitterbugging and swing dancing to the music of Louis Jordan, Nellie Lutcher and other pop stars of the 40s and 50s.  Second, the QCJB has embraced old and new second-line styles from the streets of New Orleans.  The music of New Orleans musicians like Trombone Shorty, Tuba Skinny and Dr. John and bands like the Rebirth Brass Band and the Treme Brass Band have inspired us to discover new rhythms and melodies that are thrilling our concert and party audiences.  For our younger listeners these two additions to our repertoire are a link to the music of the past.  Our long-time fans can rest assured that our esteem for the legendary jazz styles of Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith will never diminish.  Celebrate the new and link to its roots!
