Next Gigs: Villain & Saint, Oct. 22; Mr. Henry’s, Nov. 25

2017 Villain and Saint7Here’s the news about two upcoming gigs: one on Sunday, October 22, 4 to 6 p.m., at Villain & Saint  in Bethesda; and another on Saturday, November 25, from 8 to 11 p.m., at Mr. Henry’s (Thanksgiving weekend!).

Joining me at Villain & Saint will be With me will be pianist Jim Levy,  Percy White on bass, and drummer Ele Rubenstein. Jim and Ele will be with me again at Mr. Henry’s, along with Ethan Foote on bass.

Villain & Saint, which describes itself as “a Haight-Ashbury-inspired rock ‘n’ roll music hall,” which obviously has room for the eclectic mix of standard and not-so-standard jazz tunes we’ll be playing. The Villain & Saint kitchen offers “classic bar-fare of hamburgers, loaded nachos, chicken wings and quesadillas and “a standout selection of premium whiskies and bourbons, American beers, and a slew of signature cocktails.” Perfect for a Sunday afternoon.

I told my wife that I didn’t think this gig would compete with a big, exciting event her organization, Yachad, is having a week later in D.C. So prove me right, and please consider going to both.

Mr. Henry’s is a hopping presence on Capitol Hill, and we’ll be playing in the upstairs performing space. There is a $15 food and beverage minimum per person. Doors open at 6 p.m. for guests who are interested in the jazz dinner menu (prepared by Chef Thomas Bach). Mr. Henry’s strongly encourages you to make reservations to get a preferred table.

I hope you can join me for one of both of these shows.
