HRCA annual event features Denver singer Lannie Garrett

Posted

Wearing all black and a multi-colored sequined vest, Lannie Garrett strutted into the ballroom of the Highlands Ranch Mansion. There she took 225 adults seated before her to a different era.

With the help of her Errand Boys of Rhythm Quintet, Garrett sang classics by famed female jazz singers, from Billie Holiday to Ella Fitzgerald to Nina Simone. In between songs, she shared stories from the 1940s and 1950s jazz scene.

For the seventh year in a row, Garrett performed at Jazz at the Mansion on Aug. 29. Highlands Ranch Community Association hosts the show, which sells out most years.

Garrett's music career began 12 years ago, when she opened a nightclub in downtown Denver. She's played at renowned venues, such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Boettcher Concert Hall, and worked alongside some of the industry's greats, including B.B. King and Jay Leno. In 2016, she was inducted into The Colorado Music Hall of Fame.

“Everyone in Highlands Ranch loves her,” said Danielle Coryell, community event manager at the HRCA. “It's a great way to showcase local Colorado talent.”
