I Love Denton
Denton, Texas is the place to be for art followers, music lovers and collectors. The Courthouse-on-the-Square district is at the center of the creative community. Being the home to several restaurants, theaters and antique shops, “the Square” is the absolute best place to begin the Denton adventure.
A music lover would not want to miss one of the annual music festivals in Denton, particularly, Denton Arts and Jazz Festival. This event brings in a crowd of over 200,000 people, all in search of good food, amazing music and decorative crafts.
For those who have a love for jazz, it would be impossible to deny the fact that the University of North Texas Jazz program has ranked above schools such as Berkley and NYU as one of the best jazz schools in the country, not to mention the several Grammys that the proprietary UNT One O’clock lab band won.
In fact, the music scene in Denton achieved so much popularity, The Dallas Observer, which is a DFW publication, created a section in its pages for local music in Denton. The city is definitely a rival to Austin, Texas’ music scene. There is really something going on in Denton. In 2008 Paste magazine listed Denton the best music scene in the USA. If you like music and art, you will love Denton. Look out Austin, Denton may take your spot as the music capitol of the world.
