Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, JoFoKe (bka Joslyn Ford-Keel) is such a vocalist who does this with ease. Fabled to have been born with microphone in-hand on a snowy Denver evening, she was raised engrossed in performing and worship artistry by her classically trained, jazz pianist father, choir director mother and all around artsy blended family. This eclectic artist grew up active in music, theater and dance but, perhaps the greatest impressions were left when she was given a chance to “sit-in” with her family and friends’ bands, vocal groups and orchestras. JoFoKe (pronounced: Joh-Foh-Kee) emerged on the professional Colorado music scene as a teen and, because of her sophisticated musical ear, attention to detail, and ability to effectively adapt her sound to most styles of music, she was quickly dubbed a “chameleon”.
City Park Jazz is Denver’s favorite free, outdoor summer concert series. Concerts take place Sunday evenings, June 4th through August 6th, in City Park. City Park Jazz’s 10 concerts feature music from jazz, blues and salsa artists both local to Colorado and from across the country. The music starts at 6 PM, but be sure to stop by early and grab a bite to eat from one of our delicious food trucks!
