Ghosts of Georgetown Walking Tours

January 1, 2019

DC By Foot invites you to come along on a walking tour featuring Ghosts of Georgetown. Tours start every Saturday at 7:00 pm from The Old Stone House.

Among the historic streets, manicured gardens and Victorian row houses of one of Washington, D.C.'s finest neighborhoods lie deep, dark secrets about a forgotten pat. Come along to hear about the ghosts and spritis that still haunt the nation's capital ... if you dare.

You'll hear a historian's take on all of the curses, eerie coincidences and hauntings that make up the darker side of days gone by in this pre-Revolutionary town.

Freddy Cole Live at Blues Alley

November 26, 2018

Blues Alley presents Freddy Cole December 6-9, 2018.

Cole doesn't apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat "King" Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano and sings and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. But he has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother and his timing swings a little more. His vocals - suave, elegant, formidable, and articulate - are among the most respected in jazz. Cole's career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America's homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

"Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing … he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive," The New York Times.

Blues Alley is located at 1073 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.
