We first connected with El Golfo when they catered Andrew's birthday back in January, and we had our first gig there two months ago. It's a really great place to spend a Saturday night. Nice Mexican (and other Latin American) food, margueritas, and music from us. We really loved our night there in March - a great listening crowd in an intimate room. And parking was easy! After this, we'll be taking a couple of months off for all sorts of personal stuff. So come join us for this one if you can.
This Saturday, April 6 from 6-9 PM, we'll be back at our favorite haunt in southern PG county, Gemeny Winery and Vineyards, in Brandywine, MD. They'll have Myra's New Orleans food truck on site, and of course plenty of wine!
Gemeny is at 8606 Cedarville Rd, Brandywine, MD, and can be reached at (301) 442-4670. This lovely, lively place is less than an hour from DC, full of fantastic folks, and perfect for rain or shine with an indoor area opening out to a patio. The winery asks that you leave the kids at home for this one, but we're bringing our youthful drummer Mike anyway.
We hope to see you this Saturday evening!
Band Brulee and Tacos...together at last! We start at 7:00 pm. See you there.
Sorry we haven't been seen in public so far this year. We've been hiding in Mike's studio working on recording new songs. For much of February, I'll be off in far flung island locations trying to conjure new song ideas, but we have lots of shows planned for March. I'll add them to the shows page soon. And in the meantime, check out our photos page for all the recently added pictures.
We're really excited about playing at this iconic Washington DC jazz spot! Our very own Saxophone Colossus Tom Anderson (who you can hear on our CD) will be joining us for the occasion. It makes us look great if people buy advance tickets (which are thankfully cheap), so please get yours today! Here are the links for the 8:00 and 10:00 sets. Twins is a jazz club with Jamaican & Ethiopian-focused fare in an arty, red-walled room, and it plays a key role in Band Brulee history because it's where Lex met his wife! So show up because you never know what life changing event may occur...
Check out our shows page for new dates in DC, Bethesda, and down at our favorite winery. See you soon!
This Saturday, August 25 from 5-8 PM we'll be back at our favorite haunt in southern PG county, Gemeny Winery and Vineyards, in Brandywine, MD. Our singer Aura needs to dash off around 7:00 to catch a flight to Bangkok (alas, we won't play One Night In Bangkok no matter how nicely you ask!), but this is good news for blues fans as special guest Miles Spicer will take over the mic after 7 to send you home with a case of the Piedmont blues, and he'll be backed up by the boys of Brulee. Come early, stay late, and enjoy some great wine and dinner from Mr.T's Bustaraunt food truck!

We're off on our usual summer hiatus for lots of worldwide exploration. This summer, the members of Brulee are fanning out to Australia, Fiji, Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Italy, Austria, Spain, California, and Georgetown for tacos at Chaia. We do have one midsummer gig though on August 8, a rare date when we're all in town. Check the shows page for details. And when I get back in August, I promise to update this website with lots of band photos with our gorgeous new drummer Mike Metzger, who really isn't new anymore. i'm just really slow with the website. Signing off until August...
We always love our nights at Villain & Saint: Great sound system, great food, easy parking, and so conveniently locating for all our friends in the Northwest DC and Bethesda neighborhoods. Aura and I are hoping to see some of the Lafayette community out for this one, particularly since it's a great place to bring the kids for a quick dinner with music after Arts Night. You can hear our first few songs, and still be home for bedtime! See you there.
We've been gearing up to get the spring music season started at Gemeny Winery on Saturday April 7, but the weather doesn't seem to be cooperating. So Saturday's event is cancelled. But the good news for our southern Maryland winery crowd is that better weather and other shows are just around the corner: Running Hare Vineyard on April 21, Aura and Lou in a Duo happy hour performance at Gemeny on May 4, and then the whole band at Gemeny on June 9.
