“I just want the rest of D.C. to know about this great piano community.”

“Dear PoPville,

I am writing to you to let you know of this amazing music community that started one year ago and has flourished. They just had their one year anniversary and I heard the story for the first time. Apparently two Mt. Pleasant neighborhood people noticed an unused piano at Purple Patch, and they approached the owner, and one thing led to another and they started Open Piano nights. It’s a amazing community of pianists that come play a variety of tunes, from ragtime, to jazz, or classical. Anyone who wants to come play, plays. I just want the rest of D.C. to know about this great piano community.”

Open Piano Wednesdays + Acoustic Thursdays at Purple Patch DC Facebook says:

“Open Piano is a space for pianists to hang out, play, and for listeners to enjoy it. In the style of old-time rent parties, any piano player can drop in and take a turn. It’s not a concert; food and drink are served through the evening by Purple Patch.

Acoustic Thursdays is a biweekly event with live music focusing on one or two musicians. Please check out our event page for dates and bios of artists.

Hosted by Kevin Lambert, musical director of Los Caribbeat and recovering lounge pianist, Open Piano is kid-friendly, there is no cover charge, and no music but live music.”
