Stacey Riley & Eunha So

Thursday, June 8th, 7-10 PM, join us in a fond farewell concert and OPEN JAM for one of Denver’s finest young pianists, Eunha So! We are wishing her well, as she ventures off to SUNY Purchase to pursue her Master’s degree. Eunha is joined by Stacey Riley on vocals, Dan Quisenberry on drums, and the beloved Ron Bland on bass! They will play 7:00-8:00, and then the party becomes an OPEN JAM from 8:00-10:00 PM. Listeners, players, and singers are invited to share in the celebration, so come one, COME ALL!
3) Eunha’s bio (you already have mine, right?):

Eunha So is a pianist and composer with experience in many different genres encompassing classical to jazz. 

Eunha graduated from the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music with a Bachelor degree in Jazz Studies and Commercial Music. She has studied and trained under a number of prominent artists including pianists Eric Gunnison, and Art Lande.

In 2015, Eunha toured and performed with Red Bull Sound Select Artist “Povi” and was featured and selected as one of Jazz 89.3 KUVO’s 2015 “30 under 30” musicians. She is an active performer in the Denver music scene and works as a mentor and a program assistance with Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts.

Stacey Riley has been a singer most of her life, starting out in high school and college choirs, and eventually leading pop bands and jazz combos. While she was growing up, Stacey’s father sang in rock bands and steeped her in a wide variety of genres, including blues, soul, Motown, R&B, folk, and rock. Stacey first discovered vocal jazz as a teen, hearing Billie Holiday on a film soundtrack. When she heard more jazz in college at student performances, she decided this was the music she was most moved to sing, and has been doing so for the past 4 years. Stacey’s repertoire includes many selections from The Great American Songbook, a number of French/gypsy jazz tunes, and some Brazilian jazz, as well. Her main focus is the expression of the lyric, while striving to honor the style and intention of the composer. Stacey performs monthly at La Cour – Denver’s Art Bar, and around town at local venues, house concerts, and private events.
