125 Shows & Counting

(Jazz Recording Artist Aaron Myers will perform his 125th Show as Resident Artist at the Black Fox Lounge in Washington DC. )

Washington, DC, April 14, 2014 – Jazz/Neo Soul Recording Artist Aaron Myers will hit a milestone this week.  Friday, April 18th at 9:30pm when he dawns the stage, it will be his 125th show as Resident Artist at the Black Fox Lounge in Washington DC.  

Myers, originally from Texas, moved to Washington DC in 2008 following his nine month stint on the Barack Obama Campaign.  After working as the National Director for the Global Family Program, he returned to his first love of Entertainment, and made Washington DC his home.  “I believe DC has a live music scene that can compete with NYC, Chicago, or LA any day of the week!  I love the music community here, and I feel privileged to be at a venue that appreciates its artists!” he said when asked about the upcoming show.

In 2013, Myers released “Leo Rising” a Jazz/Neo Soul Album, and was recognized locally with 3 Wammie Nominations (Washington Area Music Association) and was voted Runner Up in two categories, Best Singer & Best Performance Artist, in the recent 2014 “Best Of Poll” sponsored by the Washington City Paper.

Black Fox Lounge is a well-thought-out repose located two blocks north of Dupont Circle, in the Northwest section of Washington DC.  Opened in 2009, the Black Fox Lounge now offers live entertainment 7 days a week.  Mr. Myers started with the Black Fox Lounge at the very beginning.  “My relationship with the Black Fox Lounge has grown over the years.  I started there every Saturday night which wore me out; now I’m there every first and third Friday of the month” he said.  When asked what has kept him there for so long he stated, “The Black Fox has been so supportive of me, especially as I have hit major milestones.  From the loss of my father, to the release of my first album, they’ve been right there with me!”

Mr. Myers is currently working on his sophomore album “The Lions Den” and his fall tour that will launch at Blues Alley September 2nd.  Be sure to check out the 125th Show of Black Fox Lounge’s Resident Artist Friday, April 18 from 9:30pm to 12:30am.  There is no cover for this event.
