98.5 KYGO hosted the 2019 St. Jude Jam at The Grizzly Rose in Denver on Thursday night, raising funds for research for pediatric cancer and other diseases.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. – www.stjude.org

Playing to a pumped-up, donation-giving crowd, the Grizzly Rose stage featured short, acoustic sets by Nashville up & comers as well as established artists with recognizable tunes played on radio stations such as Denver’s own 98.5 KYGO.

Jacksonville-born and Nashville-based Jordan Fletcher hit the stage first. Fletcher entertained the captive crowd with stories and songs for Still Those Kids, I Know You Are But What Am I, Firebird, Lord I Just Wanna Go Home. Also included in his set was his new release Rather Be Broke(video link).

Next up was small-town Kentuckian Elvie Shane who took the stage by storm and promptly issued a start to his set by requesting shots of tequila. Fueled by numerous shots, Shane educated the listeners on his songs such as Country Roads, Sundress, My Mississippi, Sundays in the South, Heartbreaks & Headaches, I Will Run, and My Boy. Shane also sang a fantastic cover of Apologize and turned up the County with Pancho & Lefty. Keep up with Elvie Shane on his website, Elvie Shane.com.

Tyler, Texas, native and Nashville resident, Niko Moon shared positive vibes through his songs No Sad Songs, Let It Ride, Last Call, Way Back, his current single Paradise to Me, Dance With Me, and Good Time. Moon had the crowd howling at the moon with his cover of Travis Tritt’s It’s A Great Day To Be Alive, and his medley of songs he has written and co-written that other artists have recorded. Niko Moon will have his full band with him when he returns to the Grizzly Rose on February 19(tickets).
