New Pics From RitzCarlton, Georgetown

A few photos from show in January at RitzCarlton, Georgetown.Gabriela Alarcón shot the photos for Art Soiree, which produced the program. Gabriela graciously gave me permission to included them here. Click here for samples of her work, and go to my gallery for more pics from the show.

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.

Next Up: April 2 at the Black Fox

Hey, everyone, come on down to the Black Fox Lounge, Wednesday, April 2, 8 to 11 p.m., and you’ll see me singing music with the great help of Nick Lipkowski (guitar) and Shawn Simon (bass). We’ll be playing that jazz music again. I’m going to brush off a few new (to me) tunes — standards and, shall we say, non-standards. If you want to know what I mean, you must be present to win.

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 there.

March 19 at Black Fox

Now that the snow days are (hopefully) receding in our memory, we can get on with the music. Our last show was cancelled in the aftermath of the snow, but we’re back on for Wednesday, March 19, 8 to 11 p.m., at the Black Fox Lounge. By “we” I mean Nick Lipkowski (guitar) and Nicole Saphos (bass and possibly a little singing, too).

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 there.

Good Music and Warm Weather, Feb. 19 at the Black Fox

winter photoHere’s the scene outside my house as a write this note. It’s what everyone in the Washington region is seeing, waiting (so we’re told) for yet another layer of snow tonight. The weariness has surely set in, but consider this: the forecast shows that it will be 60 degrees on Wednesday, February 19. Coincidentally, that the same day, from 8 to 11 p.m., I’ll be back at the Black Fox Lounge, for an evening of Great American Songbook jazz classics and more — this time with  Oren Levine(piano), and Eliot Seppa (bass). It will be a perfect night to celebrate the melting of ice and snow and the imminent appearance of early crocuses. Come by and release.

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.

Hope to see you there.
