Upcoming Shows

As you know, Summer is our slow season when we all go off traveling far and wide.  But we did manage to squeeze three dates into our summer calendar:

Saturday, August 3: Urban Winery in Silver Spring (7:00-9:00)
(2315 Stewart Ave, Silver Spring) This will be our first time in this great new spot!  Seems like a great family business, and we're excited to give it a try.  We'll have the great Alexey on drums.  More details coming soon!

Wednesday, August 21: Jazz on the Lawn series at Riversdale House Museum (7:00 - 8:00 pm)
(4811 Riverdale Rd, Riverdale Park MD) We are truly thrilled to be returning to this annual summer tradition!  Imagine a huge green grassy field, surrounded by shady trees, with the historic Riversdale House Museum behind the band, and a perfect sunset behind the audience.  This is a perfect chance to gather outdoors before one more summer slips away.  Bring lawn chairs or a blanket and your favorite picnic dinner, and come a little early to soak in the great community atmosphere.  And if it rains, come anyway because they'll just move the show to an alternate indoor space. Last year, we promoted this show by performing on ABC news!  You can watch the performance and the interview with Lou by clicking HERE.

Friday, August 30: Robin Hill Vineyards (5:30-8:30)
(15800 Croom Rd, Brandywine, MD)  Aura and Lou just played here in June as a duo, and this place is fantastic!!!!  A true oasis about 45 minutes from downtown DC.  Gorgeous setting with sunsets over the vineyards.  Great people, excellent food trucks…  A perfect place for late summer outdoor music.


The bad news is that many of the local indoor venues we used to play are now closed permanently due to the pandemic (R.I.P. Villain & Saint, Sotto, Harp & Fiddle, Twins Jazz...).  We're always looking for new places to play, and if you have suggestions, let us know.


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, or Neapolitan pizzeria, just let us know.  Lou recently acquired a small 1957 Fender Harvard Amp that's not powerful enough for most gigs, but it sounds gorgeous in a living room.  If you want to provide the living room and a small audience, we'd love to come over with the Harvard and play for you.
