Wednesday, December 5: Twins Jazz on U Street (Two sets: 8:00 and 10:00)
(1344 U St NW, Washington, DC , Phone: 202-234-0072). We're really excited about playing at this iconic jazz spot on U street, and our very own Saxophone Colossus Tom Anderson (who you can hear on our CD) will be joining us for the occasion. Twins is a jazz club with Jamaican & Ethiopian-focused fare in an arty, red-walled room, and it plays a key role in Band Brulee history because it's where Lex met his wife! So show up because you never know what life changing event may occur. It makes us look great if people buy advance tickets (which are thankfully cheap), so please get yours today! Here are the links for the 8:00 and 10:00 sets.
Friday, December 14: Gemeny Winery and Vineyards (Aura and Lou in a Duo Performance, 5:00 – 8:00 pm)
(8606 Cedarville Rd., Brandywine, MD 20613; phone: 301-442-4670)
This little winery has become our home in the southern region of Prince George's County, quite close to Washington DC. With the winery and vineyards located on a working family farm, Gemeny Winery is a great addition to the agricultural landscape of Maryland and produces wine from grapes grown on the farm. Lou and Aura will be playing as a duo for this night, indoors in the tasting room.
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.
