 Female led

DJ FUSION BAND

3 Female Singers

1 DJ

2 - 7 Live Musicians

 

Female led DJ Fusion Band Black Iris Collective combines a live vocal trio with DJ tracks and skilled musicians for a totally unique and head-turning audience experience.

 

Completely custom and inventive three-part harmony arrangements - inspired by Postmodern Jukebox - drive their musical sets. 

 

Founded by Julia Tobey of Give 5 Productions and The Beverly Belles, the popular group sings all over Colorado and they are the resident band at Denver’s new “modern Gatsby” Cottonwood Club.  

 

They excel in turnkey 1920s entertainment experience bookings for corporate and private clients.

 

Their favorite collaboration to date was singing “Chandelier” by Sia with acclaimed all female electric string quartet and comrades, Spinphony.

 

The group’s name was inspired by the feminine power of Georgia O’Keeffe’s revolutionary painting entitled “Black Iris”, 1926.

AWESOME DENVER DJ FUSION BAND

Wedding & Event Planner Brindle and Oak

"Black Iris Collective is not only fun, funky, and amazingly talented, but they are so creative...

... We adored working with them on a speakeasy feel event this spring and they surprised us with coming to the event with a [gutted] re-furbished 1900 piano that they created to house the DJ equipment for the event. It was insanely cool and added to the overall vibe of the performance and the event!

 

Their music and voices are out of this world and to top it all off they are such nice people and so easy to work with! I would work with them again and again!​"
