We’re proud to announce Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom as one of our beloved sponsors for ARISE Festival 2015. Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom is located at 2637 Welton Street in the old Casino Cabaret downtown Denver, whose history dates back to the Cotton Club days of the 1930s when jazz greats such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Benny Goodman took the stage when they toured through.
Over the years the Casino Cabaret has hosted such acts as James Brown, BB King, Ray Charles, Ike & Tina Turner, and countless others. Cervantes’ has continued the musical legacy of the building and neighborhood ever since the grand opening in January 2003. Cervantes’ and The Other Side have played host to thousands of live shows including intimate performances with Chris Robinson (Black Crowes), Derek Trucks, Dr. John, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Nas, Big Boi, STS9, Sam Bush, Page McConnell of Phish, Branford Marsalis, and Warren Haynes to name a few. They’re a venue that has nothing but love for great music, and we have nothing but respect for them!
