September 2012 performances
Here's my performance schedule for September, 2012. You can always keep up to date on the gigs and other related info on the web site: http://www.ohljazz.com.
I look forward to seeing you at one or more of these events.
Friday Sept. 7, 9:30 pm: First Friday at the Fox
Happy to be back with vocalist Aaron Myers for an evening of jazz standards and surprises, along with the rest of the Black Fox Ensemble: Percy White on bass and Will Stephens at the drums. The show starts around 9:30 pm at the Black Fox Lounge, and as always there's no cover charge for the music.
I won't be in town for Aaron's third Friday performance on Sept. 21, but I encourage you to come out to hear the show if you can.
Saturday Sept. 8, 8:00 pm: MetroSongs at the Electric Maid
I'm joining Jason Mendelson and the Open Doors for a show at the Electric Maid in Takoma Park to celebrate the release of MetroSongs Volume 3: "Red Handed". Harris Face and Zia Hassan are opening for our band. As part of the set, we will perform my contribution to the metroSongs oeuvre, "Cleveland Park", which is also included in Volume 3.
Sunday Sept. 9, 6:30 pm: DC Jazz Jam
Joining the second Sunday house band for the weekly jam session at Dahlak, 1771 U Street NW, Washington, DC. We're excited to be included in the DC Cultural Tourism guide alongside other notable cultural attractions.
One more event of note: my Black Fox colleagues Will and Percy, along with pianist Kenny Peagler, are performing at the Black Fox Lounge on Saturday Sept. 1 along with the amazing Victor Provost on steel pan drum. If you haven't heard Victor play (or even if you have), this is well worth checking out.
Thanks for your support!
