Capital Blues kicks off their Red Hot Blues 'N BBQ festival with a dance in the Bumper Car Pavilion. Admission includes a beginner dance lesson from 8 - 9 pm, followed by dancing from 9 pm - midnight. Tonight's band is Robert Lighthouse and The Trouble No More

 

Robert Lighthouse, a native of Sweden, first came to the United States at the age of 18, determined to learn more about the music he loves – Mississippi Delta Blues. For eight years he traveled around the country visiting blues Meccas like Chicago’s famed Maxwell Street and New Orleans, the cradle of the blues. He settled in Washington, DC in 1988 and established a cult following as a street musician. He toured Belgium and Holland with the Charlie Sayles Band and then landed his own steady gig at City Blues Cafe in D.C.

While Robert often does a one-man show to rave reviews, this time he’ll be joined by his band, the Trouble No More.

Capital Blues continues their Red Hot Blues 'N BBQ festival with a dance in the Spanish Ballroom. Admission includes a beginner dance lesson from 8 - 9 pm, followed by dancing from 9 pm - midnight. Tonight's performer is the Stacy Brooks Band

 

Stacy Brooks was dubbed DC’s Queen of the Blues by her musical peers in Washington DC when she decided to dive deep into the Blues in 2007. Stacy works very hard to keep that opinion alive & well. Washington DC is not known as a Blues Town but ask anyone in Chicago, Key West, Memphis, Atlanta and Europe when coming to DC, they will tell you Stacy Brooks is a must see. The Stacy Brooks band won the DC Blues Battle of the Bands and competed in the 30th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January 2014.

 

Stacy Brooks is a long-time favorite of DC blues dancers, and we’re thrilled to have her out again. As a special treat, she’ll be joined not only by her usual band, but also a brass section, to really fill up the Spanish Ballroom!

Tonight: Tara O'Grady and the Black Velvet Band

 

Tara O'Grady & the Black Velvet Band combine celtic, folk, funk, blues, and especially jazz in their unique lickety-split swing sound that has been described as 'Black Irish' and 'Celts in the Cotton Club.' This Irish-American jazz powerhouse based in New York City writes original music that sounds like it was composed for Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald, but also performs traditional Irish songs with fresh arrangements meant more for a prohibition swing dance hall than an Irish pub. Her stellar musicians have shared the stage with legends such as Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Debbie Harry and Muddy Waters.

 

"This torchy chanteuse leads one of the most badass old-time swing bands you'll ever hear. One thing that distinguishes her from the legions of come-hither, moldy fig front women is that O'Grady writes her own songs - when she's at the top of her game, which she generally seems to be, they sound like classics from the 1930s. She brings Bessie Smith into this century with lickety-split swing."
