DSC_0143 (3)Since I announced to you last week that I’ll be singing on Wed., Sept. 14, at Twins Jazz Club,  in Washington, D.C., I got called for another gig on Thurs., Sept. 8, at the Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown.

The program on Sept. 8 is produced by Art Soiree, which puts on a wide range of innovative music and arts programs around the D.C. area. Held outside in the hotel’s intimate Urban Garden, this should be a lot of fun.

With me for both programs will be two spectacular musicians: Dan Lamaestra on piano and David Jernigan on bass. We’ll be playing an eclectic mix of standard and not-so-standard jazz tunes. For a hint of what you’ll hear, click here to listen to my recordings.

At Twins, located at 1344 U Street (top floor), NW, Washington, D.C., there’s a cover charge of merely $10 and a food or drink minimum of $10.  Doors open at 7 p.m. The music starts at 8 p.m. for the first set. The second set starts at 10 p.m.  For directions and parking tips, click here.

On Sept. 8, the Urban Garden bar opens at 6 p.m. The music will play from 7 to 9 p.m. The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown, is located at 3100 South Street, N.W. Washington, D.C.

I hope you can join us.

Updates on Nov. 22 Gig

For the three people (okay, maybe only two) who might actually check here before heading out to my gig at Twins Jazz in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, November 22, there will now be only one long set, starting at 8 p.m., instead of two.

The other news is that bassist Scott Giambusso will be joining me and Chris Grasso,  who is playing piano. It’s a great combination.

Once again, there’s a $10 cover. Bring friends. See you there.

My Next Gig: Sun., Oct. 18, at Twins Jazz

Jeff with Wayne Wilentz on piano, James King on bass and Jim West on drums, July 2014.

So many important events occurred on October 18 throughout history. In 1873, for example, Columbia, Princeton, Rutgers and Yale Universities set the first rules for collegiate football (what are their rankings this year?); in 1929, Canadian law finally recognized women as “Persons”; in 1954, Hurricane Hazel (the third that year) became the most severe ever to hit the U.S.;  in 1961, the film adaptation of “West Side Story” was released; in 1968, police found 219 grains of cannabis resin in John and Yoko’s apartment; and, in 1980, Brooke Alexander, 18, of Hawaii, was crowned Miss World USA. All true, according to the Internet.

I won’t promise anything quite as auspicious, but we should have fun on Sunday, October 18, 2015, when I’ll be back at Twins Jazz in D.C.to perform two sets at 8 and 10 p.m.

This time I’ll be singing with Wayne Wilentz, one the most talented and, consequently, busiest musicians around, who will burn up the piano keys and keep me from running off the rails. His playing alone will be a huge treat for everyone.

Also, I’ve invited special guest Cheryl Hurwitz to add some of her great violin stylings on a few tunes.

For a better idea of what you’ll hear on September 10, click here to listen to my recordings.

There’s a cover charge of merely $10.  Doors open at 7 p.m. The music starts at 8, and then again at 10 p.m.

By the way, I’ll be back at Twins on Thursday, November 19 and Thursday, December 10. Mark your calendars.

Please come on down. I hope to see you there.

Next Gig: Jan. 22 – Art Soiree’s Living Room Series Live at Ritz-Carlton Georgetown

JAN-22NDIf I might borrow a phrase, you deserve a break on Thursday, January 22 — if not most other days. You know, leaving the worries of the day behind and relaxing in a living room-like setting with some friends as live music plays.

That’s the night I’ll be performing in the Living Room Live Series, which Art Soiree, the producer of the event, calls a concert series that “spotlights emerging artists.” It all takes place in the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown’s lobby-lounge, which has the ambiance of an actual living room (with a fireplace and drinks and all).

I’ll be singing jazz songs from the Great American Songbook, along with pieces from other related genres. If that’s a little too vague for you, click here to listen to a few of my recordings with these same guys.

Backing me up will be some of the city’s best: George Oakley (reeds and woodwinds), Scott Giambusso (bass) and Nick Lipkowski (guitar). (We’re actually a quartet.)

As if that’s not exciting enough, the show is also free — but you have to RSVP. To get your ticket, click here.

Doors open at 7 p.m. The performance starts at 8, and we’ll play until 10:30 p.m. Seating is first-come-first-served.

I’m mighty grateful to Sandro, the founder of Art Soiree, for having me play. Art Soiree curates and stages contempoary art exhibitions, festivals and art projects. Sandro and his partner Tati have presented more than 300 unique exhibitions and programs since 2009, featuring more than 400 contemporary artists. They also offer full production and artistic marketing services to private and business clients.

So I hope you can join us on January 22. Please, don’t do it for me. Do yourself a favor. You deserve it.

Next Gig: May 29 at the Black Fox

I’ll be back at the Black Fox Lounge, Thursday, May 29, from 8 to 11 p.m. With me (vocals) will be Nick Lipkowski (guitar) and Eliot Seppa (bass), playing jazz standards and non-standards again.

We’ll be in the street-level window of the Black Fox, which is at 1723 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. There will be food and drink for you, but, as always, no cover charge.

See you then.

Jeff
