In 2004, Rampart Rock’n Jazz, Inc. (RRJ) was formed and in 2006
gained its non-profit status as a 501 (c) 3 (fully certified IRS
tax-deductible) volunteer, musical organization in Woodland Park, CO. RRJ
has formed to promote vocal and instrumental music oriented towards younger
participants and audiences, including the baby boomer generation, beyond what is currently available in our community, year-round, and assist
community safety issues. The vocal (choral harmony) portion of that genre
has historically been lacking, locally, and we have plans to solve that gap,
as our initial step. We have long-term desire to bring several concerts yearly
which educate, involve and excite the youth and children of our Southern
Colorado area. Our Christmas holiday concert which intends
to include youth performers, is one example. (We need your donations to be able to
put on these performances for the disadvantaged, and local children.) Our charter is to excite the youth and 'baby-boomers'
of Teller County to our concerts and genre!
In general, we are focused on presenting Woodland Park, Divide, Cripple Creek, Florissant, and surrounding communities, the combination of musical types you would see at a modern jazz festival (typically), Jazz, Soul, Blues, Soft (classic) Rock, and maybe some folk music, with a concentration on the vocal presentation, both a cappella, and with minimal instrumental accompaniment, with concentration on 1950s-present music.
If you wish to promote this type of musical presentation in Teller County, please send your tax-deductible donation to:
