How Many Dates Does A Washington DC Area Jazz Pianist Play In A Year?

1 Posted by - December 17, 2013 - Blog, Featured, Gig Reports

Just for fun, I thought I’d count the dates I played in 2013. I played some memorable gigs and some that I’d forgotten until I looked at this list.

I especially enjoyed being part of the Sunday afternoon concert series at the Barns of Rose Hill. The concerts at Westminster Canterbury and Bright Box were highlights as well. I’m also enjoying my new job on Tuesday nights at Trio Grill in Falls Church. There I’m playing a mix of jazz and rock standards with Joey Whitney on tenor sax. As always, I appreciate the long relationship that I’ve had with Lightfoot Restaurant and Village Square.

While I’ve worked a lot to the west of DC in Loudoun County, my goal for next year is to go beyond NOVA and play more in DC proper.

So how many gigs did I play?

119 jazz gigs in the year 2013. (Did I mention that I also have another band Stereoreel that did its share of playing this year?)
