Kate Hope & Friends
Strongly rooted in Classical piano and vocal training, Chicago-Native Kate Francis Hope’s highly eclectic background has uniquely ignited a vibrant, versatile and authentic performer.
Kate’s original songs combined with choice cover songs range in style from gospel, rock, folk, alt-country, blues, bluegrass, rock-a-billy, singer-songwriter and a touch of jazz.
From 2006-2017 she was front-gal of the Kate Hope Band back in Greater NYC after 13 years of performing in Santa Fe, NM as a lead vocalist of various groups.
Now a Boulder County local, Kate has teamed up with a number of Rocky Mountain High-ly talented musicians to perform in Boulder and Greater Denver. Her original recordings have been graced by the likes of Grammy-Award winning musicians and producers.
Our Por Wine Bar performance on September 23 includes Denver guitarist Dan Montelongo and Louisville local Bassist, Mark Brummer in the band. Each of these fine musicians brings years of experience in NYC and Colorado.
“If the audience has half as much fun as the band is having, we’re in for a good time.” ~Kate
