After performing to sell-out crowds at Summit Church in 2004 and 2006, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra is returning to Alta for a summertime 7:00 PM show on Sunday, July 22.

Blending a red hot horn section with jazz and big band roots, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra have created a sound that is unlike any other. With Denver Bierman writing and arranging the band's music, the diverse sounds of legends such as Stevie Wonder, Chicago, and Earth Wind and Fire combine for a fresh look at contemporary pop.

DMHO wowed all of America as they made the finale of the FOX-TV's "The Next Great American Band." They've garnered praise and a devoted fan base from Greece to Hollywood, having played the Summer Olympics in Athens and the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

While the music is what brings fans of DMHO to the show, the show itself makes a fan for life. Massive radio airplay, countless primetime television appearances, and tour dates all over the world have built a fan base of all ages for the band.

While DMHO has been compared to many, the music defies a genre. Silky smooth vocals combine with a wall of sound that calls up the images of blues, funk and soul. What can be defined is a contemporary pop sensibility with a nod to the great horn bands of the past.

Over 10 years, seven albums and two live-show DVDs, the band has evolved and explored many different musical avenues, but one thing that remains unchanged is an unswerving devotion to Jesus Christ that is transparent in their music.

Advance tickets for the July 22 concert are $10 each and may be purchased from Summit Church at 1000 Main Street in Alta. If available, tickets will be $15 at the door. For more information, call the church office at 712-200-2200. To learn more about DMHO, check out www.denvermho.com.
