Get Tickets:

Start out the evening with a classy cocktail “Meet and Greet” at 5:30 inspired by the community spirit that is Republic Restoratives, a new women-owned distillery turned venue in town. They are located just a few blocks north of the Angelika pop up and humane society on New York Ave in Northeast DC. There is plenty of parking (free for 2 hours) within a block in the Hecht’s garage. Around 7 pm we’ll convene intro the huge industrial style back room. All ticket holders are given 20% off drinks. They make vodka and bourbon on site, and we’ll have some light snacks as well (pita chips, hummus, tostitoes, salsa, cheese, crackers, salami, and gluten free rice crisps). Feel free to drink water or soda, it’s not required to drink alcohol. You can also order food to be delivered, and there is a nice pizza spot nearby that delivers to the distillery. There are about 10 restaurants within a block, and Union Market is also really close.

Audience members will enjoy a trek through time following the changes in style of the jazz tradition with performances of arrangements by Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Oliver Nelson, and more. Following their tribute to the masters, the jazz orchestra will play world premieres of new music by band members as well as groove arrangements of recent popular music. This will be a nice event, and we hope to see you there!
