Cool Gallery Opening and Then Up on the Roof with Satin Doll Trio

Thursday is shaping up to be one of our awesome Combo Nights!  I'll actually start at about 5:30 at the spacious Kogod Courtyard in the Smithsonian American Art Museum between 7th and 9th st. for their monthly Take 5! Jazz concert. Tony Williams, the featured performer, has earned recognition as one of the most innovative drummers in history. Then at about 6:30 we'll head a couple blocks away to Longview, one of the coolest galleries in the city for their latest opening reception - J. Jordan Bruns exhibit called Light, Color, Chaos! (Check out the Facebook Page here.)  They actually use real wine glasses there.  :-) Then at about 7:30 we'll walk about 7 blocks over to one of our favorite spots, the rooftop of the Beacon SkyBar for the Satin Doll Trio - an elegant ensemble that performs Jazz, Swing and Latin music as well as the intimate “supper club” jazz style.

You need to sign up for the free Beacon SkyBar event - go to Art Soiree's EventBrite link.

There will be chances for food along the way, initially at the museum, and then at the SkyBar. Or we can also stop somewhere on the walk over.  I made the gallery the meeting point because it's an easier time for most people, but you can meet us earlier at the museum or later at the Beacon.  Hope you can join us!

    Yes, the band was canceled. But the rain is gone and there's a nice breeze here atop the SkyBar:)

    Arrived early to the SkyBar, and was told that the band (Satin Doll) canceled due to the weather (will be replaced by DJ). :-(

    Thanks for checking, Karen, on Sky Bar. I looked at the weather map app and it looked not too promising for this evening.
    Bad luck!

    Excited about today's event! Timing is about 5:30-6:20 at Kogod Courtyard - we will be in the back as you face the band. I'll have a sign. Then 6:30-7:40 at Longview Gallery - look for a group. And then 7:50 or so on at the Beacon. It's about 7 blocks from Longview to Beacon. Up to you where to meet us. My # to text is 703.338.7494. We'll adjust if it rains at all and post here.

    To clarify, most people come alone. That's sort of the point to it all. :-) I'll designate the places to meet later in the week.
