Hello from Asia! 

Work is keeping us far away from music for the first half of November.  Actually, VERY far away with Lou in Japan and Aura in Cambodia.  We'll be returning to DC and the band soon though.  Two shows for November and December have just been added to the shows page. 

And we'll be adding some new videos to instagram soon, so if you haven't started following us yet, now would be a great time!  We finally joined instagram last month, so now we have to find some followers.  Help us get the word out if you can.  See you soon! 

Video for "Part-Time Island Girl"... 

Click here to check out the video we made earlier this year.  This little song that seems perfect for the gray rainy day outside as I'm typing this. 

Band Brulee has finally arrived at the 21st century and joined Instagram.  So now we have to actually find some followers.  If you're on the 'gram, please come follow us - @bandbrulee. 

Check out the shows page for some winery dates later this month, and we have a little time for some more outdoor gigs before winter hits.  So count us in if your neighborhood needs some front porch or block party music...      

Busy September! 

We're totally back from summer vacation, and we're playing all over the place in September.  Lots of variety too.  Mike will be joining us on drums on Sept 9, and Aura and Lou will be playing some of those trio gigs with the great Franklin Wade on Trumpet.  Some gigs are listed on the shows page, and the late Sept gigs will be added soon...

Today's show at National Harbor postponed until Sept 1 

Due to the threat of thunderstorms, today's show has been postponed until Sept 1.  See you then.  Here are the details:

We'll be playing at National Harbor aiming our songs directly at people on the water (165 Waterfront Street, Oxen Hill, MD).  Bring your boat (or rent a SUP board, kayak, or giant swan if you don't happen to have a yacht handy) for a refreshing night of #musiconthemarina with us. Our landlubbing friends can also listen from the boardwalk, so come for an adventure even if you prefer terra firma! 

Each event in this summer-long series has a theme, and ours is Jazz Through the Ages - which we will interpret in the broadest sense possible.  Come try something new with a refreshing night of music from a Brulee trio of Louis, Aura, and Franklin Wade on trumpet!

This event is sponsored by the nice people at Patina Polished Living.

Tuesday, May 3: Top-secret party in Riverdale... 

Aura and Lou will be playing from 6:00-8:00 at the 2-year anniversary party tonight at 2Fifty, the highly acclaimed barbecue place in Riverdale.  They were named best barbecue in the DC area by the Washington Post this year, so they're sort of a big deal.  It's a private party with lots of local culinary luminaries, but if one of our Riverdale area friends shows up early, maybe you can sneak in by carrying one of Lou's guitars...  

Next public gig is Saturday May 14 down at Romano Winery.  Come join us!

Meadworks on Saturday April 2! 

This Saturday, we'll be back at our new favorite place in the DC area: Meadworks in Hyattsville.  Ken Carter, the owner and head meadmaker, has provided a truly unique spot for music in our area.  We need more creative places like this in the DC area, so I hope you can come support Ken (and us).  Our drummer Mike can't join us this time, so we'll be an acoustic quartet with the great Franklin Wade sitting in on trumpet.  Lots of details about Meadworks are on our shows page.  So click above for all the information, and come say hello on Saturday night!  

Friday at Windridge Winery...The return of Lex O'brien! 

This will be our first 2022 show in the gorgeous outdoor setting at Windridge on their hill with the sunset view.  We'll be playing as a full quintet with the great Franklin Wade on trumpet.  Our drummer Mike won't be able to join, but here's some amazing news: Our original drummer Lex O'Brien is visiting from Austria this week, and he'll be taking his old seat behind the drums!  We're excited to play some of our older songs from the Lex era that don't get played much these days.  You can expect the return of "Count Sheep."  Windridge is about a 35 minute drive from where we live in Northwest DC, and Lou recommends ordering Inferno pizza for a pickup on your way home after the music. 

Sunday afternoon at 2:30 on the front porch! 

The only thing I miss about 2020 is the Sunday afternoon music out in our neighborhood.  This coming Sunday afternoon is predicted to be 75 degrees, which seems perfect for outdoor music! So come join us back in our usual spot on the 5700 block of 33rd St NW.      

We’ll be starting at 2:30 PM and probably playing for around 90 minutes.  Maybe more.  

This time, we’ll be a trio with Aura singing, Lou playing guitar, and our new friend Franklin Wade on trumpet!  We met Franklin last November, and he’s joined us at almost every show since then.  We played at a winery a few weeks ago as a small trio like this, and I really loved it.  We're so excited to bring Franklin to our neighborhood!  You can learn more about him here: https://www.wadetrumpet.com/about 

See you Sunday I hope. 

Back at Windridge this Friday! 

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Meadworks on Friday!  Such a great night!  This coming Friday, Aura and Lou will be playing as a duo indoors at the great Windridge Winery in Darnestown (near band-favorite Inferno Pizza).  Come join us if you can.  See the shows page for details.

Meadworks on Friday, February 4! 

Come join us on Friday, February 4 at the wonderfully unique Meadworks in Hyattsville.  We'll be playing as a quintet for this one.  Our amazing drummer Mike will be there, and the great Franklin Wade will be sitting in on trumpet.  Click on the shows page for details.
