Washington, District of Columbia August 26 — Friday night, Mr Henry’s Restaurant will play host to Resident Artist Aaron Myers as he brings in his jazz band for his monthly fourth Friday Jazz Show. For over 5 years, Myers has brought either a weekly or monthly show to the greater Washington DC area, filled with jazz, comedy, and guest artists who entertain to a packed house. His show has quickly become a crowd favorite in the Eastern Market/ Capitol Hill area.
“I’m pumped and ready to get in front of an audience,” Myers said. “I do not think you’ll meet anyone who loves their job more than I do!”
Myers has been been working at House Studio DC finishing his project “The Lion’s Den” which will display his talent as a composer, arranger, pianist and vocalist as he collaborates with opera singers, rappers, and many local jazz musicians. Friday’s show starts at 8pm and goes to 11pm and will celebrate the completion of his project, announcing the official release date of the project, and private performances to support the project.
As resident artist, Myers also serves as one of the hosts for the Capitol Hill Jazz Jam every Wednesday night from 8pm – 11pm, the only Jazz Jam in SE Washington DC, started by saxophonist Herb Scott. Mr. Henry’s, known as the original musical home of Roberta Flack, also seeing other early musical acts such as Donny Hathaway, is proving once again, to be a home for musicians and music lovers alike, boasting music programming with local jazz and bluegrass musicians. The Capitol Hill Jazz Jam has added an educational component asking those who attend the Jazz Jam to bring school supplies so it can be dispersed to local DC schools.
Aaron Myers, known as the “Class Act,” is a native Texan who has decided to make Washington DC his home. Through his partnerships with charities, businesses, and politics, Myers has made an impression on the District that merges art with activism. Visit his website at www.aaron2.me.
