Next Gig: Epicure Cafe, August 4

Copy of Copy of Copy of astrid smith (2)Up next: I’ll be singing at Epicure Cafe, 11104 Lee Highway, Fairfax, Va., on Sunday, August 4, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. (Note: this is updated from the originally advertised time.) Right beside me will be two of the best players around: Donato Soviero on guitar, and Scott Giambusso on bass.

It’s my first time performing at Epicure Cafe, which is, according to its own description, “a family-owned and collectively-led arts space, restaurant and lounge” that offers with a great menu of “Mediterranean dishes with a modern twist, as well as gourmet pizza offerings – with many options for our vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free friends.” (I stopped by recently and had “Steak Kabob with Falafel-Hearted Artichokes. Really good!) It’s a comfortable place to sit back and listen to music.

And we’ll be there to do our part. Cover charge will be a mere $15 per person.

Hope to see you there.

Next Gig: Takoma Park’s Square in the Circle, February 11

square-in-the-circle-2I hope you can join me on Saturday, February 11, from 7:30 to 10 p.m., when I’ll be at Square in the Circle, 6714 Poplar Avenue in Takoma Park, Md. I’m thrilled to be doing it for at least three reasons:

1) Square in the Circle (pictured above) is actually the home of my good friend Alan Kanner, who regularly hosts some of the best independent musicians from across the U.S. It’s a relaxing, intimate setting where the audience can actually touch performers there, but let’s not get carried away with that.

2) Because Square in the Circle typically hosts folk and roots musicians, I’m excited to mix my usual jazz set with equal parts folk, country and blues tunes. It’ll be a night of great American music by the likes of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Elvis Costello (okay, British, but with the heart of an American), Billy Strayhorn, Bob Dylan, Duke Ellington and Tom Waits.

3) I’ll be joined again by two spectacular musicians, who, without me, would be worth your hearing: on piano, Dan Lamaestra, who has recorded extensively and performed around the world and currently holds the prestigious position of pianist with the internationally renowned Navy Commodores Jazz Ensemble; and, on bass, David Jernigan, one of the Washington area’s leading (and busiest) performers of Brazilian and American jazz.

All this for the low, low cover charge of only $10 per person. There will be refreshments there, but you’re welcome to bring your own, if you don’t mind contributing.

Because it’s a house, seating is limited. So if you plan to attend, please send an email to me at weintraubjeff@gmail.  

If I were to tell that this will be a fun night of great song and spirit, is that something you might be interested in?

See you on February 11.
