Thursday, September 27: Villain & Saint in Bethesda (8:00 pm)
(7141 Wisconsin Ave, 240-800-4700). We seem to play here twice per year, and we love it. Villain & Saint was named the best Bethesda music venue in 2015 by Bethesda Magazine and was listed as one of the top 10 best new bars in the DC Area in 2015 by Zagat. It's a great place for live music, with an excellent sound system and food by Robert Wiedmaier, the well-known chef who also runs Marcel’s and Brasserie Beck downtown. And by the way, Robert was just awarded a Michelin Star for Siren, his Logan Circle seafood restaurant. Apparently, in addition to collecting Michelin stars, he also plays blues harmonica. We'll try to get him to play with us, but no promises that this will actually happen...
Wednesday, December 5: Twins Jazz on U Street
Details on this and other fall shows coming soon...
Friday, December 14: Gemeny Winery and Vineyards (Aura and Lou in a Duo Performance, 5:00 – 8:00 pm)
(8606 Cedarville Rd., Brandywine, MD 20613; phone: 301-442-4670)
This little winery has become our home in the southern region of Prince George's County, quite close to Washington DC. With the winery and vineyards located on a working family farm, Gemeny Winery is a great addition to the agricultural landscape of Maryland and produces wine from grapes grown on the farm. Lou and Aura will be playing as a duo for this night, indoors in the tasting room.
We also love playing private parties, which is a great way to introduce our music to people who wouldn't hear us otherwise. So if you'd like to host Brulee in your living room, backyard, office, Jacuzzi greenhouse, kitchen, yacht, private jet, safari tent, treehouse, basement, private South Pacific atoll, airport business class lounge, or Neapolitan pizzeria, just let us know.
The best way to hear about upcoming shows is to join the email mailing list. Go to the home page to enter your email address, and we'll add you to the list. We send about one email per month and jealously guard your contact details.
