Upcoming Shows

Thursday, September 5: Flanagan's Harp and Fiddle in Bethesda (8:00 pm until late)
(4844 Cordell Ave, Bethesda, MD 20814; phone: (301) 951-0115)  We've been hoping to play here for a while, and it's finally becoming a reality.  This place has truly excellent musicians most nights of the week (I highly recommend the weekly Sunday evenings with the Mary Ann Redmond band), and it seems to have a regular crowd of people who truly value local music and quality songwriting.  Plus, good pub food and Guinness on tap!  We're hoping to become a part of this secret Bethesda mini-scene.  So we'd love it if you can come support us on our debut night.

Saturday, September 7: Gemeny Winery and Vineyards (6:00 – 9:00 pm)
(8606 Cedarville Rd., Brandywine, MD 20613; phone: 301-442-4670)
It's no secret that we love our summer evenings out at Gemeny, located in the southern most 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.  For these Saturday events, they always have food truck catering, which goes great with the wine and music.  Some of you might remember the night last year when Lex joined us on vibes.  He'll be in town in September, and we're hoping to get him back for this one.  

Sunday, September 8: Adams Morgan Day (12:00 – 12:45 pm)
For the first time, we'll be playing at Washington DC’s longest running neighborhood festival.  Adams Morgan Day is a family-friendly celebration with music, art and activities for all ages.  Attendance and entertainment are free, and local businesses and restaurants offer deals for the day. We'll be the first band, so come early to help us get the day started.

Friday, September 13: Romano Vineyard and Winery (6:00 – 9:00 pm)
15715 Bald Eagle School Rd, Brandywine, MD 20613; (301) 752-1103)
We love our winery gigs down in the Brandywine area, and people (especially Marvin, one of the great Friends of Brulee) have been telling us for years that we have to play at Romano.  So come join us for one of their "Food Truck Fridays."  

Saturday, October 26: Trio at Romano Vineyard and Winery (6:00 – 9:00 pm)
15715 Bald Eagle School Rd, Brandywine, MD 20613; (301) 752-1103)
Our drummer Mike will be touring the west coast with his other band in October.  So Aura, Lou, and Andrew will be playing this "Food Truck Friday" as a trio.  Or maybe if Lex is still in town, we'll get him to come out and re-live his glory days before he left us for strudel, beer, and a wife in Austria.   

Wednesday, November 27: Thanksgiving Eve Celebration at  El Golfo in Silver Spring  
15715 Bald Eagle School Rd, Brandywine, MD 20613; (301) 752-1103)  We discovered El Golfo last year, and it's a fantastic place for music.  There's a great room for listening, great Latin American food, and occasionally dancing between the tables.  It's the kind of place where we can play anything we want, so there's always the risk of Andrew bringing his accordion.  They told us the night before Thanksgiving is one of their biggest nights of the year, so bring your visiting family for a  turkey-free night.   We promise some holiday songs, including of course our annual celebration of the Week 52.


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.
