The Deborah Stafford Quintet

The Deborah Stafford Jazz Quintet

We play a great mix of Jazz Standards and Jazzy Blues and we are happy to curate the song list to make it perfect for your event. The Quintet consists of piano, bass, drums, vocals and sax. But if you have space or budget constraints, we can trim it down to a Quartet or even a Trio! We play all over the front range at clubs and private events.

Deborah Stafford and her award-winning Blues Band, The State of Affairs, had a pretty good year in 2019. They were chosen to represent Mile High Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, they got a nod for best self-produced CD and made their first music video for "Driftin". They were nominated for 3 "Members Choice" awards by Colorado Blues Society including Favorite Band and Best Songwriting. Deborah was asked to sing in the Colorado Women in the Blues Showcase and the band got to open for Buddy Guy. Post 2020 they were honored to open the Trinidaddio Blues Festival. Not bad for the Blues!
