MCA Denver says
What Young Men Do

"Venus Cruz has opened for artists such as Black Thought of The Roots, Saul Williams, Zap Mama, Goapele, Al Green, Guru, Vieux Farka Toure, Tinariwen and Bishop Desmond Tutu, to name a few. Her current project, "What Young Men Do," includes the talents of Mikey Smith(keys), Mark Emmons (drums) and John Grigsby (bass). Within weeks of its start, the band played Denver's UMS Festival, the Larimer Block Party (now Project Pabst) and opened for Grammy-nominated artists Hiatus Kaiyote and Emily King. This year they also landed the opener for Grammy-winning vocalist Gregory Porter at The Chautauqua Amphitheater in Boulder. In 2012, Cruz won Westword's Best R&B Vocalist Award. Cruz has held residencies at Dazzle Jazz, Ophelia's, Herb's Bar, El Chapultepec and The Living Room, and is a regular player on the scene. With deep improvisational skills and a soulful voice, Cruz has collaborated with artists hailing from many different genres of music. She is also the host and DJ for the internationally popular show "Jazz Odyssey" every Wednesday (10 p.m. to 12 a.m.) on KUVO.org 89.3FM."
