March is Women's History Month, and DCLX is kicking if off right with one of the most kick-butt lady bandleaders we know! Mark your calendars, get excited, tell a friend, and plan to join us March 3rd for a celebration of women in jazz with Shannon Gunn and the Bullettes! We'll also be featuring women teachers, DJ, and emcee!

 

Steeped in the tradition of the masters but forging ahead with a style all its own, “Shannon Gunn and the Bullettes” is the new all-women jazz ensemble based out of the DC area. Laid back but hard swinging, the Bullettes bring all generations together to enjoy a dynamite performance. The Bullettes began as a “dream” of Shannon Gunn, trombone player and graduate of the George Mason University Masters in Jazz Studies program. The Bullettes are a musical organization that uplifts women in jazz, creates networking opportunities, and provides a positive role model for aspiring jazz musicians in the DC area.
