Purnell Steen & the Five Points Ambassadors

Purnell Steen and The Five Points Ambassadors (also known as LeJazz Machine) is a band dedicated to playing and preserving the music of Denver’s legendary Five Points neighborhood. The Blues-oriented Hard Bop music is basically Swing style. Denver’s own scintillating Myra Warren rounds out the ensemble. Celebrating Juneteenth has been a long tradition for the Five Points Ambassadors, and they will definitely Swing and Sway the Five Points Way! Ever the storyteller, Purnell will share the histories of the Black artists who have worked and played in Five Points. Purnell Steen and the Five Points Ambassadors have been chosen to represent Denver on tour in our Sister City of Brest, France, in September 2022. They have performed for many dignitaries, and during the 2008 National Convention, played for the Clintons and other notables. Purnell is a cousin to Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, George Duke, five-time Grammy Award winner Dianne Reeves, and the legendary bassist Charlie Burrell.
