Denver's Best Blues Jam
Westword, Best of Denver 2011 AND 2009
Ziggies, Best Blues Jam.
Thank you to all the great musicians who make this happen!
Best Blues Jam - 2011
While Ziggie's has long been hailed as Denver's oldest blues bar, in recent years it's expanded into other genres, such as rock, R&B and funk. In addition to an acoustic open-mike night on Mondays, an open jam on Tuesdays and a chance to sit in with featured musicians on Wednesdays, Ziggie's also boasts one of the longest-running blues jams in town on Sundays. And that's where the real action is. The Doc Brown Blues Band and the Blues Allstars alternate hosting the blues jams, which bring in a variety of solid musicians playing covers and originals. Keyboard players need not worry about bringing down a keyboard; the bar has one available for the jams, which kick off at 7 p.m.
Westword, March 31-April 6, 2011, Volume 34, Number 31, Page 98
Thank You Denver!!!
Ziggies - "Best Blues Jam"
2009 Westword's Best of Denver
"Best Blues Jam"
"Ziggies has always been known as Denver's oldest blues bar, but ...Carla Jordan, who took over the place and remodeled it just over a year ago have expanded the music selection by also bringing in R&B, funk, rock and jazz acts on Fridays and Saturdays. The other five nights are allotted to open mics... Whether you want to hone your chops with some stellar blues talent or just listen, Ziggies is the place..."
