A group of musicians, The Claim Jumpers, that evolved out of the University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media (CAM) gathered Oct. 15 in the main concert hall at the King Center on the Auraria Campus. The mood and Dixieland music were upbeat and fun.

Overall, the ‘homecoming’ night was a celebration of the history of the Claim Jumpers and an acknowledgement of the retirement of the leader and CAM Assistant Professor Bill Clark. The evening was filled with CAM alumni and featured past and current members of the band from the past 30 years.
