Saturday, February 1: 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. They have a cozy indoor area, very effective heaters, and lots of wine to keep us all warm. So the show will go on in any kind of winter weather. As we've said before, Lou's favorite Neapolitan Pizza in the DC area is Inferno Pizzeria, about 5 minutes from the winery. But on this day, you might not need to go for pizza because there will be a paella event at the winery. Darnestown is only about 25 minutes north of DC, so this is quite convenient for any of you who live here in the city. Lou drives up there regularly just for pizza. Because the indoor space at Wind Ridge is pretty small, we'll be playing it as a trio gig without our beloved drummer Mike. In the spring, we'll be playing (with Mike!) in their large grassy area outside which reportedly offers great sunset views.
Saturday, February 8: 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.
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.
