Trio with Barbara Papendorp

Vocalist and actress Barbara Papendorp sings standards from the American and French songbooks plus my original songs. I'm at the piano, alongside David Bamber on bass. No cover charge.

Aaron Myers at Mr. Henry's

Cooling off the summer heat with Aaron and the band, presenting another exciting evening of songs, stories, and surprises. No cover charge, reservations strongly recommended.
Here's a live recording of my latest original song "When The Morning Comes" from our last show at Mr. Henry's on May 28. That's Barbara Papendorp singing, with solos by Lionel Lyles (tenor sax) and David Bamber (bass). Winston Johnson rounds out the group on drums.
My longtime musical partner Aaron Myers is spearheading the DC Jazz Lobby, which I encourage you to follow. I support their efforts to engage local government to provide incentives to support live music and local musicians. 
Here's Aaron performing my tribute to etiquette on the Washington, DC Metro system, which was featured on NPR last year.
