Lost Soul

Lost Soul


LOST SOUL is a straight-ahead jazz combo that specializes in driving, classic jazz and be-bop, beautiful Latin bossanovas and sambas, soulful blues, gently-shepherded soft ballads, and groovin' funk, as well as serving up standards, vocal charts, and some smooth jazz tunes.


Lost Soul is an energetic classic jazz quintet that is deeply rooted in the most basic of traditions of jazz.

We present this EPK as a means to book future dates at fine Front Range establishments, as an accompaniment to great cuisine or as headlining an evening's entertainment for swing listeners, dancers, and fans.

In January 2008, Lost Soul "sold out" the dining room on a Sunday night at Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge. Dazzle is one of Denver's premier jazz supper clubs and one of the 'World's Top 100 Jazz Clubs' as recently listed by Downbeat Magazine.

Members of Lost Soul have also performed at:

El Chapultepec Too (invited back three times!)
Alto (downtown Denver)
Stars Restaurant (Cherry Creek)
Bliss Cafe (Arvada)
The D-Note (Arvada)
Trilogy Cafe (Boulder)
Magnolia's Steak and Seafood (Lafayette)
Water to Wine (Centennial)
1770 Sherman Community Center (Denver)
Ellie Caulkins Opera House (Denver, various private events)
South Denver Chamber of Commerce (Centennial)
The Denver Fireman's Museum (Downtown)
The Mountain States Childrens' Home (Longmont, 2 years running)
Friends of Hutch (Cancer benefit, headliners)
Innervisions (Blind musicians benefit, headliners)
The Omni Interlocken Resort (Broomfield).

Pianist Kathryn Shut has also performed at the former Hotel San Remo in Las Vegas, the historic Musician's Mutual Foundation in Kansas City, and at the Chapparral Grill (Adam's Mark) in Dallas, alongside her father, jazz master Tim Ballard. Music director and trumpeter Mike Evans also lends great licks to Denver Dixie band Jubilee Hot Seven, a swing dance band, and a classical brass quintet.

When appropriate, we will invite stellar guest artists to perform with us. We have worked with Keith Oxman (tenor sax), Tim Ballard (vocals), Drew Morell (bass), Jared Johnson (tenor sax), Jean Luc-Davis (bass), Julia Wilson (vocals), and John Hines (trombone) just to name a few!

The group's sound is perfect for intimate gatherings, such as dinner or behind conversation (... we are proud to share that we were actually complimented by patrons at several local restaurants for this quality... ) However, never boring, the group swings with a passion, without being harsh or brassy.

Venue and booking Managers should contact our parent entertainment company, TIMKAT Entertainment, Inc, at 303-997-2881 or at TimKatEnt@gmail.com, and speak to Kathryn Shut /shoot/. THANK YOU for reviewing our EPK and we look forward to entertaining you soon!

"Recently, my wife and I organized several fundraisers to help pay for expenses associated with our son--in law's fight with mantle cell lymphoma. When Kathryn heard about the silent auction to be held in Broomfield, she immediately talked to other members of Lost Soul Jazz Combo who offered to help by providing the entertainment. They arrived early and set up their equipment before the event and were playing as the guests arrived. They played a variety of music for the younger and older guests. They were very professional on and off stage and played until the event was over. It was a very successful fundraiser and all the guests had a good time. We were very pleased and grateful for the entertainment provided that evening and would definitely invite Lost Soul Jazz Combo to any event available in the future." -Bill Bone, "Friends of Hutch" Foundation

Set List

We typically play a 2-4 hour show, longer shows in 45-60 minute sets, take 15-20 minute (max) breaks, and always arrive early to set up!

We also are respectful to the restaurant, understand that we are there to assist in building a draw, do not tend to drink on the job, and always maintain a professional demeanor, as we are interested in performing in classy establishments.

Common jazz classics, Latin favorites, blues, and be-bop charts are 'I Can Dream Can't I?', 'Minority', 'Jeanine', 'Dolphin Dance', 'The Girl from Ipanema', 'Dindi', 'There Will Never Be Another You', 'Take the 'A' Train', 'Save Your Love For Me', 'Friday Night at the Cadillac Club', and many more, including the samples given on MySpace and this EPK.

The tunes and their order featured on each performance vary each and every time that we play, keeping things fresh!
