Sunday, March 22: Wind Ridge Vineyards in Darnestown, MD (2:30 – 5:30 pm)
(15700 Darnestown Rd, Darnestown, MD 20874, 301-750-9463)
This very welcoming winery is quickly becoming a nice little home for us. So far, we've been playing in their cozy indoor tasting room, but if the late March weather cooperates for this afternoon, we'll be playing outdoors on their hill above the vineyards overlooking the sunset. This means we'll have enough space to finally bring along our beloved drummer Mike Metzger to Wind Ridge. So come show him the Metzgarian welcome he so deserves. We're also hoping for our friend Rusty Wilson to be joining us for some solo piano during our set breaks. And there will be food served by the esteemed Watershed cafe, including soup and empanadas. So don't miss it!
Saturday, March 28: El Golfo in Silver Spring (7:00 pm until they kick us out)
We discovered El Golfo last year, and it's a great place for music. There's a perfect space for listening, Latin American food, and occasionally dancing between the tables. We'll have the full quartet with Mike on drums.
The Future: We've also booked lots of other dates including Gemeny Winery, Twins Jazz on U street, and our annual evening at the Riversdale House Museum Jazz series. Watch this page for details coming soon...
We also love playing private parties, which is a great way to introduce our music to people who wouldn't hear us otherwise. So if you'd like to host Brulee in your living room, backyard, office, Jacuzzi greenhouse, kitchen, yacht, private jet, safari tent, treehouse, basement, private South Pacific atoll, airport business class lounge, or Neapolitan pizzeria, just let us know.
