Will I see you in 2020? 

Well here it is again, a new year with new goals and dreams!  Last year was a tough one with the loss of some dear friends as they passed and with this ongoing struggle to recover from hip surgery BUT!!!!..........I am feeling a positive spirt in the air for 2020!  My new year's resolution is to follow up on all those promises to stay connected to friends and family, not letting time get away without visits, conversations & spending time laughing with those I love.  

Thank you for all continued support of my musical endeavors.  This year already has some exciting shows on the calendar and I'm looking forward to new music and opportunities to share it with all of you!  

Please take a look at my event page for upcoming performances and I wish you all a very happy & peaceful new year.  ~ Terri Jo


July 2019!  Summers always fly by so fast!  After a few weeks off for hip replacement surgery, "ugh", I'm looking forward to upcoming gigs and events.  Stay cool and I hope to see you this month!  

I will be joining a team of musicians to host a fundraising benefit at the Muse Performance Space in Lafayette, CO on July 20th from 11am to 2pm.  This is a delightful, non-profit concert room that needs a little boost to keep those doors open. Please take the lovely drive to this quaint town and join us for a brunch & auction along with lots of live music!  www.museperformancespace.com

On Sunday, July 28th I will be performing with my vocal jazz band, "Quirktett" at Dazzle Jazz Club in Denver. Our show starts at 7pm and we would love to have  you join us!   Reserve your table at www.dazzledenver.com

And.... on Wednesday, July 31 at 6:30pm, I will join many local jazz musicians to honor and welcome back to performing, the legendary pianist & vocalist, Ellyn Rucker. This is going to be an evening of music for all at Dazzle Jazz Club in Denver.  Come join the fun! 

Honored to be one of the 31 Colorado Women of Jazz / March 2019 !  

The wonderful jazz radio station, KUVO 89.3 FM, has posted my interview on their website (www.kuvo.org) as part of Women's History Month celebrating Colorado women in jazz.  I'm very honored to be in this list of women musicians, all who have contributed  greatly to the Colorado jazz scene. 

Thank you KUVO!  Here is a link to the article >   https://www.kuvo.org/post/terri-jo-jenkins-talks-kuvo-during-womens-history-month

Dec. 22nd ! "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas......"  

What! December 2018?!?!  I love the colder snowy weather and all the cozy things that go with it. Cuddling with my sweetheart by the fire, hot chocolate in my favorite mug, big warm sweaters, etc.  And the music! I'm the one humming Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas in the grocery store :) 

Just finished a jazz show, singing with the Denver based "Park Hill Brass Nonet" band at the Denver Country Club. It was a blast!  Singing in front of a big band filled with amazing musician and downright fun folks. I'm one lucky singer to have many outlets to share songs with! 

A few big events left in the year (student recitals, Christmas Cantata at First Christian Church in Loveland, Christmas eve services with lovely music) AND a sweet gig at La Cour Art Bar on south Broadway in Denver.  Its a lovely intimate venue with limited seating, so if we have the honor of your company that evening, please reserve a table at www.denversartbar.com.  I'll be singing from 7pm to 10pm and you are welcome to drop by anytime.  Joining me will be the amazing bassist, Peter Huffaker and the wonderfully talented Jeff Jenkins on piano.  We will of course have a few holiday themed songs mixed in with our jazz standards.   Hope to see your there!  

Wishing you a peaceful Winter Solstice. ~ Terri Jo

Oh my how time goes by........ 

July 14, 2018 ,

Happy Bastille Day!  Its a sweltering 93 degrees here in Denver, CO. But I love it :)  Having taken some down time to recover from hip surgery, I'm now building strength both physically and musically.  New music is on my piano, and in my soul.  Contemplating a new recording project and new venues and returning to writing.  Amazing how losing the physical pain I've carried around for more than a year can be oh so rejuvenating and inspiring!  I have a few gig this fall and winter, so I hope you will check out my show page and come by to say hello. 

Love & peace, 

Terri Jo

My favorite time of year!!!  

Oh that cool crisp feeling is in the air again. The colors up here in the high country are stunning!! And with the excitement of fall, come fun gigs too! 

I've just posted some new performances for October and November on my "show" page. I hope you will check them out as there is quite a variety of events coming up.  And.....if you or someone you know is interested in hosting a house concert for either jazz or singer/songwriter folk, please email or give me a call! I really love performing for the intimate and relaxed house concerts that are becoming more and more popular.  Check my contact page for the best way to reach me. 

Here's wishing you a lovely autumn with family and friends, 

love, TerriJo

Summertime.....and the livin is EASY?!?! 

Hard to believe that it will be August in less than a week!! I've still got a lot of summer hiking, swimming, evening walks, and bike riding to do before this warm weather turns to fall (which I do indeed love too!)  It has been an exciting last six months as "Quirktett" unfolds with jazz harmonies, intriguing song choices, and a variety of performances! I adore my singing companions in this group and feel like we are a bunch of soulmates when we are up there on stage. We will be performing at DazzleJazz on Sept. 15 for one show only! Hope you can all come. Yes! All of you!!! Got to make those reservations soon. www.dazzlejazz.com

2017 ! Oh my !  

It is indeed a curious time! So many uncertainties as we head into the new year. One thing I do know, music is indeed a source of self care, comfort, and excitement! I am so very grateful for all the wonderful musical adventures that came my way in 2016!  I recently heard congratulations from programers at 3 different Colorado music stations regarding the release of "From This Moment".  So nice to receive kudos from these music industry folks! I'm sharing one here with you.......from Chris Kresge (noted radio show dj, music show promoter & critic), with the posting of his "Best of 2016" Colorado recordings.  I am honored to be chosen as one of the three picks in the Jazz category!
