Every Friday (May 24th, 2013) until August 30th, Jazz in the Garden series takes place. This is a free concert! The free concert series features an array of jazz artists performing a wide variety of styles—including salsa, blusion, xylophone, and Afrofunk—every Friday evening from 5:00 to 8:30 at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.

On May 31st, Chopteeth will perform. Chopteeth is an AfroFunk Jazz band. Their website is http://www.chopteeth.com

Guests may purchase food and beverages from the Pavilion Café and its carts located around the Garden or bring their own picnics. I will be bringing food for a small picnic for myself. If others want to bring food and share for a group picnic, please let me know. Alcoholic beverages may not be brought to the premises from outside and are subject to confiscation.

I will give out my number closer to the event. I will wait by the entrance of the Sculpture Garden. I will also post my whereabouts on this meetup page, if you can not make it until late. This event ends at 8:30pm. In the event of inclement weather, this meetup will be canceled and rescheduled for another date.

Please change your RSVP if you can no longer make this meet up.

    Sorry I missed the group. I walked around a few times looking for you all, but I had no luck finding the peach and white hat nor the big tree on the left. There were so many people! I did get to enjoy the band close-up, though and they were great. Thanks for planning, Shern.

    Hi All! I arrived early than I thought. I grabbed us a nice spot in the shade. When you enter the garden (only one entrance on 7th & constitution), I'm on the left hand side near a huge tree. I am sitting on a light blue and striped towel. There is a huge peach and white hat near me. Please meet me inside the garden as I will not leave because our spot may be taken. Please also text me if you can't find me. Thanks!

    I'm planning to attend, but will be getting there late (hopefully by 6:15pm). This band rocks! I saw them last year at the outdoor concert series at Strathmore Hall, so they are well worth it. I'll look around the crowd for a Meetup sign.

    Sorry for changing my RSVP, an old friend of mine is in town and unfortunately coordinating last minute catch up can be a hassle, and conflicts with this. You guys have fun though!

      Hi Alex: I completely understand. I hope to see you at another event! Thanks for updating your RSVP.

    Hi All!

    So far weather.com advised that it will be a 10% chance of precipitation. So far, the weather looks gorgeous for Friday but rather warm (88F). As always please update your RSVP in advance of the event if your plans has changed. If an emergency happens, please text, email (through meet up.com) and let me know, so I will not be looking for you. Direct communication is very important as it allows the host to make last-minute adjustments for the capped attendance events. If you are a no-show, this may prevent you from attending other events from this meet up. Please change your RSVP, if you can no longer make it. Please do this before 4:00PM on Friday, May 31st. Thank you!

    I look forward to seeing everyone!! : ) I will send out my cell number closer to Friday. I may bring a couple of extra beach towels. Please feel free to bring lawn chairs and your own beach towel. Also, I will bring food for a picnic for myself and you may do the same.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
