Paul Mullikin is thrilled to join a long-time-collaborator, bassist Wilson Luallen, at the beautiful La Cour Art Bar on July 5th. He will be performing a variety of Jazz standards, arrangements of classical favorites , and some original compositions, all on the mellow, rich, and all too rarely heard Marimba.
Multi-instrumentalist, composer and educator Paul Mullikin is a graduate of Denver School of the Arts and Lamont School of Music at Denver University. He is a recipient of a Downbeat Magazine Award, Presser Scholar Award, and was recently featured on KUVO 89.3’s &30 under 30& series. Paul has been a veritable chameleon on the Colorado music scene for over a decade. On any given evening he can be found playing percussion with the Colorado Symphony, timpani with the Boulder Chamber Orchestra, drums at Nocturne, solo piano at the Brown Palace hotel, or even rapping on stage at the Walnut Room. In 2017, he was thrilled to be invited to perform with the Boulder Philharmonic at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. as part of the SHIFT orchestra festival. His recorded output includes work with the Lynn Baker Quartet, the Jason Klobnak quintet, Donna Wickham, Art Lande, Beats Noir, and his own compositions can be heard on ‘Time is Now’, by the Paul Mullikin quintet, and ‘Fruition’, a new album due out by Fall 2017.
