Chick Corea and Steve Gadd Band Live at Blues Alley Oct. 5-8

September 26, 2017

Chick Corea and Steve Gadd Band will be performing at Blues Alley October 5through 8, 2017.

 

This musical partnership is the stuff of legend. But the music is always new. Since Gadd became the very first electric Return to Forever drummer (true story), these two have turned out one game-changing record after another: The Leprechaun, My Spanish Heart, Three Quartets and Friends. Now, co-leading a band for the first time, they pick it up where they left off, this time with young guns filling out the lineup: Lionel Loueke, the Benininan genius on guitar; Steve Wilson, Chick’s Origin protege, on sax and flute; the great Carlitos Del Puerto on bass; and Venezuelan master Luisito Quintero on percussion. New studio album on the way, fall 2017.

The Bridges of Washington Boat Tour Sept. 23

September 19, 2017

The Bridges of Washington Boat Tour will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 3:30 to 6:00 pm. 

 

Washington’s Bridges, Monuments, and Scenery are best seen from the Potomac. Early wooden bridges were swept away by floods, set alight by steamboat sparks, and ravaged by war. The spectacular, wooden Georgetown Aqueduct carried C & O Canal barges across to Alexandria. One of the earliest crossings, Chain Bridge, swung from chains. Some unbuilt bridges were architectural or engineering marvels, and today some need “infrastructure” conservation ASAP.

 

This guided tour will depart from Georgetown aboard the Harbour Belle and focus on bridges, past and present, as they contribute to the evolution of the City of Washington, its transportation needs, and its grand plan.

 

Guide Don Myer is the author of Bridges and the City of Washington, an architect, and a DC Preservation League Trustee. He formerly served as Assistant Secretary of the Commission of Fine Arts and Clerk of the Works of the National Cathedral.

 

The tour leaves from 3100 K St. NW. Pre-registration is required.

$75 DCPL & Historical Society of Washington DC Members

$100 Non- Members

Ticket includes guided tour, light food and beverages

Space is limited and Registration is required
