Jazz Duo for Birthday Party

Tessa and I had a great time last weekend playing through a good portion of our jazz repertoire as background music for an 80th birthday party. The birthday boy, his wife, and a couple of dozen lifelong friends and guests all enjoyed a best-in-class dinner at Joe’s Crab House while we provided atmosphere and ambiance – and then stuck around for some food of our own!! Big thanks to the hosts for having us...

Valentine’s Day Music at the DoubleTree

Our Valentine’s performance was a total blast! It had all the important elements: great people, amazing venue, and of course, love. We spent the evening singing through nearly all of the love songs we knew – lots of jazz standards, some latin, and some pop as the guests rotated slowly around us, enjoying the music and crystal-clear views of the Pentagon and downtown Washington. I actually played for two different crowds – the weekly Comedy Zone dinner on the 12th floor, then a couple of sets with Tessa in the Skydome. Pictures from both below!¬†It was a great night ūüôā

A Weekend at the Old Town Theater

A Weekend at the Old Town Theater

I had the pleasure of playing at Alexandria’s newly restored Old Town Theater last weekend. For each show (two on Friday, two on Saturday), I played the “walk-in set” for about half an hour before showtime, a quick jingle as each act was introduced, and a quick “walk-out” piece. The host was Mark Matusof¬†and he introduced magicians Karen Beriss¬†and Osmar, before the main act, Chris Barnes from Milwaukee. Having been re-opened in December 2012, the Old Town Theater is poised to return as a popular venue in downtown Alexandria. It’s almost 100 years old, and although much of the specific history has been lost of the years, immediately upon entering you know that you’re in a real vintage place. The second floor has a bar and...
