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.

Check Out My New Demo Tracks

I finally found some time to sit down and record six songs to share with others, and now they’re live and ready for your indulgence.

If you do check them out, you’ll hear me, Nick Lipkowski (on electric and acoustic guitars), George Oakley (alto saxophone, flute and clarinet), and Scott Giambusso (acoustic bass). We recorded at New Door Productions, where Scott is the proprietor and engineer.

To hear the tracks, click over to this page to find the links to the recordings on SoundCloud. Or click each of the songs right here:

I hope you enjoy them, and please share your feedback.

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.

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.
