Commander Cody Band at The Hamilton Live May 28

May 11, 2016

The Hamilton Live presents Commander Cody Band with Mike Marlin (former child prodigy who defeated mid-life crisis to make brilliant, brooding rock record) on May 28, 2016.


Look in any book on the History of Rock and Roll and you will find Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen The band’s name was inspired by 1950’s film serials featuring the character Kommando Kody and from a feature version of an earlier serial, King of the Rocket Men, released under the title Lost Planet Airmen.


The band's founder and leader, George Frayne, took the stage name Commander Cody. Among many other achievement, this eight piece super band’s album Deep in the Heart of Texas is one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 albums.


Today the Commander Cody Band features Mark Emerick on guitar, Steve Barbuto on drums, Chris Olsen on pedal steel, and Randy Bramwell on bass. Cody is still trying to pound his piano into submission. And they all sing.

The Hamilton is located at 600 14th Street NW.

Welcome to Kalorama View

April 7, 2016

“We're setting a new standard for the neighborhood,” says developer Mike Cassar as he enthusiastically praises architect KC PriceAkseizer Design Group, and the Kimberly & Daryl Team of Washington Fine Properties. “I don’t think there’s anything like this in the area."

"We created beautiful tall ceilings, and from the penthouse, that amazing rooftop view," continues Cassar. Incidentally, other developers were eagerly photographing that view when The Georgetown Dish was there for a sneak preview. "When we first purchased the property, it was full of water, totally flooded. It took almost a year."

And there are those Jeff Akseizer's signature yellow doors. Unit one carries that 'sunshine' touch into the living room.
