Washington Nationals Dream Foundation

I had the grand pleasure of playing piano for the Washington Nationals Dream Gala a couple of weeks ago – and what a night it was! Most of the players were there, along with spouses/significant others, several hundred people, and the Presidents! (The huge president heads that you see running around during baseball games.) There was a silent auction and lots of mingling going on as I played background jazz standards, blues … and Aladin’s “A Whole New World,” requested by pitcher Gio Gonzales. The Presidents would come by every once in a while, and at one point Teddy hopped up on stage to air jam next to me. Luckily, the moment was captured and tweeted by a journalist 🙂 Best pic of #DreamGala to date pic.twitter.com/c2oKO2SCp1 —...

Jazz Trio in Alexandria

Big thanks to The Balcom Group for having us play a couple of weeks ago in Alexandria! I had a great time (along with Mark Saltman and Greg Discher) playing an evening of jazz standards at the Westin. We were even joined by one of the guests who sang The Girl for Ipanema in Portuguese (with an excellent accent from what we could tell!). You can listen to clips from three of our tunes that night at our Washington DC Jazz Trio page.

Playing Jazz at Another Great Party

I’ve now had the pleasure of playing piano for United Therapeutics twice – and what a special night it was both times! I already wrote about the 1920’s speakeasy that I played in last December, and last month the event was themed like a classic car repair garage, with so much attention paid to every last detail. The crew from EMT set up all the lighting and sound and were great to work with. Thanks to...

1920’s-themed Holiday Party

1920’s-themed Holiday Party

This just may have been the most fun themed party I’ve been to. It was set in the Roaring 20’s with a live jazz band, professional dancers, horse races, photo booths, while I played solo jazz piano in the ‘speakeasy.’ The decorations were superb, the people were a blast and the food was incredible! I hope they do it again next year …
