More music: jamming and playing for a cause

Two more musical events coming up at the start of April. On Sunday the 1st, I’ll be joining the house band of the long-running DC Jazz Jam at the Dahlak Eritrean restaurant in Adams Morgan (18th St & Florida Ave. NW), along with Evan Samuels on guitar, Ethan Foote on bass, and Will Stephens at the drums.

I’ll be playing with Will again on Tuesday the 3rd, along with our Black Fox partner Percy White and multi-reed master Seth Kibel. We’ll be providing tasteful swinging music at “Pearls of Purpose 2012,” the annual gala of the DC non-profit FAIR Girls. They’re focused on preventing human trafficking here in DC and around the world. The event will include a silent auction, food, drink, and extraordinary guest speakers. (click here for tickets) .

And of course, tonight’s performance of the “Dupont Jazz Project” is still on at the Black Fox Lounge. Should be a fun evening of jazz with a talented array of my favorite DC musicians.
