Our members recently enjoyed a two hour walking tour of the highlights of DC’s incredible Jazz history in the Shaw neighborhood. The clubs and theaters on U Street, N.W., dubbed the city’s “Black Broadway,” drew audiences to hear headliners like Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong and D.C.-born Duke Ellington.
Some of the crowd went on for more modern day jazz – to listen to our instructor Ken Avis and his band Veronneau. Thank you to Louise Kenny of our Special Events Committee for coordinating the tour. View our current list of Special Events and join us soon!
