10506732_10152291436052285_2115087731968413811_oPlease join us this Sunday (6/2/19) as we pay tribute to the late Fred Foss, who was a jam regular, a frequent Monthly Master guest artist, and a long-time DC jazz player and educator, having taught or mentored many players in the DC community.  Our special guest host for the evening will be Fred’s good friend and saxophone compatriot Elijah Balbed.

We will also be doing a collection for the Foss family to help with funerary and other expenses.  The microphone will be open if anyone would like to share thoughts about Fred, as well.

Come sit in with Elijah and our outstanding First Sunday house band as we pay tribute to Fred!  All musicians and appreciators welcome.  6:30pm-9:30pm @ The Brixton (901 U Street NW).  No cover!
