Sunday 1/8/17: DC’s “Best Performing Artist” Lionel Lyles returns to the jam to kick off 2017 (plus Will’s birthday)!

11884993_10153080495392285_7913046257924485688_oCelebrate a brand new year with one of the hardest working men in the DC/Baltimore jazz scene as Lionel Lyles returns as our Monthly Master Jazz Artist on sax!  Also celebrate Will’s birthday (and Elvis’…).

Among other accolades, Lionel has won “Best Performing Artist” the CityPaper readers’ poll, and also been named “Best New Jazz Musician” and “Best Tenor Sax” by the CityPaper arts desk.  Lionel can also be seen at almost every Sunday jam anyway, so it’s fun to give him the reins and let him run the show.

Come sit in with Lionel and the rest of our terrific Second Sunday house band.  No cover!  6:30-9:30pm @ The Brixton (901 U Street NW).
