There’s a storm brewing…

…and it’s the sound of Dandy Wellington and his Band.  Catch him on November 4th at the DC Tweed Ride Bash at Brixton.

“Inspired by the Big Band Era of Jazz, Dandy Wellington and his Band have taken the sounds of the 1930′s and 40′s and created a world of well dressed music. With a passion for obscure songs steeped in the Jazz tradition, Dandy Wellington has assembled a catalog of music that invokes an atmosphere of class. From the golden age of cinema, to the bounce of New Orleans, each song is hand selected and played to perfection by a band cut from the cloth of elegance.”

We’re excited to have Brixton host this years Tweed Ride celebration.  It’s the hottest new spot on U Street should provide the perfect setting for us. Tickets are moving fast.  Don’t get caught outside when the storm hits! Less than 60 tickets remain.
