The City was born in 1858, when gold was discovered in the sands of the Cherry Creek River. It was incorporated as a city in 1861
and became the territorial capital in 1867. The City was named after James W. Denver, governor of the Kansas Territory.

Ever wonder why Denver is called the "Mile-High City"? It's due to the fact that the State Capital Building is at 5,280 feet above sea
level.
Actually, most of metropolitan Denver is above 5,280 feet.  The Front Range of the Rocky Mountains is an easy 20-minute drive from
downtown via I-70. The metropolitan Denver area has a total population of approximately two million people, and consists of 40 towns
and municipalities. Downtown Denver is the center of the metropolitan area.

Denver has a dry, mild climate with an average of 260 sunny days per year, with an annual average temperature range of mid-to-upper
90's (Fahrenheit) during the summer and 20 - 30 degrees above zero for the winter lows. Summer temperatures above 95 degrees are
unusual. The average relative humidity ranges from 30-70%, while precipitation averages less than 16.0 inches per year.

According to the Colorado Census, there are 175,000 Black African Americans in the Denver Metro Area, which represents 3.8% of
the State's population.

    Enjoy this gorgeously musical, high energy, poignant, funky and nostalgic show featuring the songs

    and more of your favorites!
    This show has some of the best songs that have ever been written, performed by a spot-on band
    and a great singer!
    Lannie wrote this show as she LOVES the genius, soul and singing of both Sam Cooke and Stevie
    Wonder.  When she heard De Thomas sing, she knew she had found her star!  De performed this
show last year and knocked the audience off their feet (Lannie said she should say, knocked “ON their feet,” as dancing in the
aisles was spontaneous!)  De sings the songs as if he has been singing them his whole life, tells the stories of Stevie and Sam,
and charms the audience with his charisma and stage presence.
De Thomas is an accomplished singer, actor and performer.  He has starred in productions of:  “Swing” at Boulder’s Dinner
Theater to rave reviews, starred as “Simeon,” in the Christmas show, “One Bethlehem Night, ” was featured in the acclaimed
Shadow Theater’s production of “Uncle Jed’s Barbershop,” and starred in a production of “The Color Purple” at the Aurora
Fox Arts Center.
