Recommended Posts

I will be in the DC area Monday through Friday of next week on business. 13th throught mid day on the 17th.

 

What are the good jazz or funky rock clubs worth spending some time in?

Made a three day trip last year. Never had time to sight see.

 

Company HQ is in Rockville MD and I get to go for four and a half days of meetings/training/"team building".

 

By the time the work day is done, most of the sights are getting dark or closed and its only the bars and clubs that are open.

 

Did make a family trip once, I was 12 and we were living in Virginia.

 

Would rather tour the city with my wife or grandchildren. Lots more fun than if I am alone.

I a live in Potomac, about 5 miles West of Rockville and 15 miles North of D.C. If you have the time, go to the Birchmere on Monday, the 13th. It is in Alexandria, VA, just over the Potomac River.

 

Direction to the Birch:

Victor Wooten, Oteil Burbridge, Steve Bailey and Derico Watson are playing. I hope to go, too.

 

It's 25 bucks a person and starts at 7:30. Email me at bassist5217@yahoo.com for any other suggestions such as good eats, etc... in the D.C. metro area.

Thanks bassplayer.

 

If I can swing it, I will be there. Depends on what the boss schedules.

"One Step Down", "Twins", & "Tacoma Station" were the big local jazz clubs when I lived there. As far as rock goes I don't know what is left there. I believe the "Bayou" closed down. Georgetown and Adams Morgan are good hangs and usually have some kind of live music happening.
I have no homepage.
