Hope to see you all this Saturday, May 19th, 6-9pm at Chez Billy, for the pre-season fundraiser for Season 2 of the Petworth Jazz Project!
This year there will be 5 shows, on the last Saturday of every month from May through September, on the lawn at the Petworth Rec Center at 8th and Taylor St. NW. The talent is sourced in collaboration with Omrao Brown of Bohemian Caverns, and is truly the best of the best in local jazz.
The season kicks off on May 26th with a performance by the Jolley Brothers.
