This Saturday eve, join us with special guests Victor Provost (steel pan) and Allyn Johnson (piano) at the Black Fox Lounge for a night of jazz to ring in the first real Spring weekend and the Cherry Blossoms. Victor and Allyn are regularly noted as top players in town, including each being named “Artist of the Year” by the Washington CityPaper’s annual “Jazzies” (Victor in 2011 and Allyn in 2013). Top-notch bassist Ed Hrybyk rounds out the band, along with yours truly on drums.
No cover! 9:30pm-12:30am at the Lower Level of the Black Fox Lounge (1723 Connecticut Ave NW).

I’m excited to announce that starting in 2014 I’ll be hosting a no-cover jazz combo every First Saturday at the Black Fox Lounge (1723 Conn Ave NW) from 9:30pm until 12:30am.
The WED Jazz Trio includes Dave Kane on keys, Ed Hrybyk on bass, and me on drums — and we will be joined by a different special guest artist each month.
In January, we were joined by saxophonist Tedd Baker, and coming up this Saturday, February 1st, we will be joined by vocalist Lena Seikaly.
Thereafter, we have an outstanding line-up of special guests:
…and more to come throughout 2014! Stay tuned!
