Native Washingtonian Lena Seikaly is a fresh voice on the national jazz scene. She was named "one of Washington's preeminent jazz singers" and "brightest voices in jazz" by The Washington Post. Dr. John Hasse, Duke Ellington's biographer, called Seikaly a "major league young talent in jazz." Seikaly is making her mark as both a revivalist of traditional jazz vocals and an innovator in contemporary vocal jazz styles.
Jazz guitarist Steve Herberman is a master performer and educator. His sheer command of the instrument puts one in mind of the great jazz guitar masters. Herberman is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and has performed at venues such as Birdland in New York City, Spazio in Los Angeles, the NAMM shows in Anaheim and Nashville, and, recently, the North Wales Jazz Guitar weekend in the United Kingdom. Closer to home, he has performed at Blues Alley, the Smithsonian Jazz Cafe, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Don't miss out on your chance to witness these masterful contemporary artists and manipulators of the Jazz sound!
