DENVER & THE MILE HIGH ORCHESTRA’S GROOVY GARNERS DOVE AWARD FOR CHILDREN’S MUSIC ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Written by SGN Scoops on April 23, 2012 – 4:50 pm -

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Groovy, the first children’s recording by Denver & The Mile High Orchestra, Christian music’s premier Big Band, received the Dove Award for Children’s Music Album of the Year at the 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards, presented in Atlanta last Thursday.  Produced by Denver Bierman, Jamie Statema, and Darren Rust, Groovy marks the first Dove win for GFK Records.

“I am delighted and excited about Groovy’s Dove win,” said Denver Bierman, Denver & The Mile High Orchestra founder and bandleader.  “We had a lot of fun working on this record and collaborating with Jamie Statema and Go Fish, who are the very best at making music for kids.  From the start we were dedicated to recording a project that had both musical integrity and lyrics kids could relate to—and that families would want to share.  Receiving this award is one more expression of confirmation that we are headed in the right direction—we will continue to create music that glorifies God and edifies families.”

“As a record label, our goal is to make great music for kids that won’t drive parents bonkers,” said Jamie Statema, Groovy producer, GFK Records president, and founding member of Go Fish.  “To be able to work with a band as musically and artistically gifted as Denver & The Mile High Orchestra is an honor. We are proud of their first kids album, Groovy, and are extremely excited to see this incredible work honored with a Dove Award.  There has never been another children’s album like it and we are thrilled at how families everywhere are responding to it.”

Delivering Denver & The Mile High Orchestra’s signature high-energy horns and crooning vocals, Groovy includes the Gaither classic “I Am A Promise,” the Bob Dylan-penned “Man Gave Names To All The Animals (featuring Go Fish),” “Sunday School Swing,” “Groovy ABCs,” and such original selections as “All of My Heart” and “Brand New Day,” among others.  Selections from the project are also featured on this summer’s Praise VBS curriculum from Go Fish Resources.

Denver & The Mile High Orchestra have performed extensively around the world, including at events in conjunction with two Olympic Games.  In 2007, the group was a finalist on the FOX TV series “The Next Great American Band.”  Formed by Denver Bierman at Nashville’s Belmont University in 1999, Denver & The Mile High Orchestra’s previous recordings include Good To Go, Timeless Christmas, Stand, and the band’s 2000 debut, Act The Scat.

About GFK Records:
Created in 2003, GFK Records is the label home of Go Fish, one of the leading providers of family entertainment and children’s ministry resources.  Beginning with Splash, Go Fish has recorded seven successful recordings for children and families, Superstar, Snooze, Snazzy, Party Like A Preschooler, Kickin’ It Old School and Christmas With A Capital ‘C’, along with the DVDs Showtime, Let’s Sing, Kickin’ It Old School and Praise.  Go Fish concert appearances have drawn capacity crowds to churches and theatres across the country, while their VBS curriculum series has been utilized by more than 6,000 churches around the world.
