First Lady of Soul


If Colorado has a first lady of soul, it’s Hazel Miller. The indomitable R&B artist is as much a household name in the Centennial State as Big Head Todd, and she’s a rare local musician who can pack pretty much any house on any night. In fact, it was just a few months ago that Hazel was recognized by Denver mayor John Hickenlooper as one of 150 people who make Denver a better place to live. Between that and the myriad accolades she’s garnered as a blues and R&B musician over the years, you know she’s gonna put on a show worth the price of admission. 7:30 p.m., Feb. 19, Nissi’s, 2675 North Park Dr., Lafayette, 303.665.2757, $12
