Denver and the Mile High Orchestra are a “horn-driven pop band.” They draw inspiration from Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire and Blood Sweat and Tears as well as Billy Joel and Huey Lewis. They take pop music from the past and give it a modern twist. They were founded in Nashville in 1999. The current lineup includes Denver Bierman as vocalist, a seven-piece horn section, and a four-piece rhythm section. They were the top three finalist in “The Next Great American Band” on Fox TV.
