Note: No jam on 4/16/23 (karaoke night)!
For our first month of a relaunched jazz jam session, we are going to continue a lineup of outstanding sax players (thanks again to Tedd Baker, Lionel Lyles, Herb Scott, and Elijah Balbed) for a month of much-needed #SaxualHealing.
So come join the jam this Sunday (4/23/23) as Monthly Master jazz artist and saxophonist Mercedes Beckman headlines the session, along with a special house band of Shawn Purcell (guitar), Hope Udobi (keys), Delorean Fullington (bass), and Tyler Leak (drums).
Mercedes came to the DC scene shortly before the pandemic and can be seen playing all around town, including with the U.S. Army’s Jazz Ambassadors.
Come sit in with Merrcedes and the rest of our special Fourth Sunday house band! 6:30-9:00pm @ Haydee’s (3102 Mount Pleasant Street NW). No cover!
Facebook event here.
**Please mark your calendars for the full #SaxualHealing lineup**
