Upcoming Shows

Thursday, March 8: Bossa in Adams Morgan (7:00 – 9:00 pm)... The return of Johannes Langkilde!
(2463 18th St NW, Washington, DC 202-667-0088) This will be our first public gig in a while, and it's a big one for us.  It's our first time at this great Adams Morgan music venue.  They'll have tables set up, and we'll be playing the dinner sets so you can check out their Northern Brazilian menu.  Lou is really quite excited about the Moqueca, which he hopes will bring back memories of the summer of 1995 in northeast Brazil.  And here's the big news: Our beloved keyboard player Johannes Langkilde will be visiting from Denmark that week, and he'll be joining us for the gig!  So come make him feel loved in the hope that he can be seduced back to Washington DC again on a full-time basis.   Apparently, he's been practicing the chromatic harmonica, so we expect that he'll be importing some pretty cool tricks for his big return.

Friday, March 9: Gemeny Winery and Vineyards (Aura and Lou in a duo performance, 5:30 – 7:30 pm)
(8606 Cedarville Rd., Brandywine, MD 20613; phone: 301-442-4670)
We love this winery opened in the summer of 2016, located in the southern region of Prince George's County, quite close to Washington DC. We've played here many Saturdays with the full band, and those shows will start up again in April (see below).  In the winter months, they don't have the larger Saturday events, but they've still been featuring live music in their small tasting room for Friday happy hours.  So come join Aura and Lou for this little intimate event.  If you ever thought "I love those Brulee songs, but it's hard to focus because I'm so dazzled by the impossibly sexy bassist and drummer," then this is the show for you. 

Saturday, April 7: Gemeny Winery and Vineyards (Full band 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. This is the first Saturday music event of the 2018 season for Gemeny. These nights are always a great time with excellent wine and great food trucks.  So come help us kick off spring 2018 at Gemeny.

Thursday, April 26: Sotto on 14th St. in Downtown DC
Join us at the fabulous SOTTO restaurant and bar on 14th St. in the hippest part of Downtown DC (Sotto is the lower level of 1610 14th St NW; the entrance door is between Ghibellina and Pearl Dive Oyster Bar). Cozy yet classy, this speakeasy sharing a kitchen with Ghibellina serves retro-inspired cocktails & a full menu of delicious food that gets great reviews and press. It's easily metro accessible and there's a valet parking stand right out front for those not keen on the parking search.

Thursday, May 17: at Villain & Saint in Bethesda (8:00 - 10:00 pm) 
(7141 Wisconsin Ave, 240-800-4700). This place was named the best Bethesda music venue in 2015 by Bethesda Magazine and listed as one of the TOP TEN BEST NEW BARS IN THE GREATER DC AREA in 2015 by Zagat. It's a great music venue, with food by the well-known Belgian chef who also runs Marcel’s and Brasserie Beck downtown.


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, or private South Pacific atoll, just let us know.
