Friday "JAZZ NIGHTS" Series

 

In this ministry, we open our sanctuary as a venue for the community of talented jazz musicians and their supporters from around the Washington area. The players are organized by one of DC’s most experienced jazz organizers, Mr. Dick Smith. Every Friday night from 6 to 9 p.m. Jazz Night in Southwest attracts large crowds of people from all over the metropolitan area. A real community of people has converged around Jazz Night. We share fellowship and affirm the fact that this is a powerful communal and spiritual experience -- that God loves Jazz and rejoices with us in our expressions of love and life. Jazz night is catered by the SW Catering Company.


Blue Monday Blues - 6:00 pm (every Monday)

Blue Monday Blues is a project of Southwest Renaissance Development Corporation launched in 2006. It welcomes a great many of the area's finest electric, down-home artists to lead incredible live performances every Monday evening without any exception.

The BLUES is a truly great American art form. With distinct influences from African, Caribbean and Southern origins it has expressed the passions of people very familiar with adversity and hardship. Perhaps this is why it has such a compelling appeal: the very common human experience of transcending these difficulties and reclaiming a new harmony. Blues is anything but sorrowful; it leaves you with a renewed sense of vitality and offers a new way of seeing things.

We hope you will enjoy these experiences and find something inspiring every time you come.

Today, as a rising star of one of America’s finest musical traditions, Gonzalez has come to his current status by following in the footsteps of jazz’s ancestral forebears. The fusion of world rhythms and straight-ahead jazz makes this passionate performer an audience favorite all over the world

In the music player 

Facebook 
The consummate musician, producer, arranger, songwriter and artist in his own right, Wayne Linsey’s list of credits reads like a who’s who in contemporary music. Legendary names like Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are among the plethora of artists with whom the L.A.-based maestro has worked on stage and in the recording studio. Super producers like Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds and hitmakers like Whitney Houston and Earth, Wind & Fire always call Wayne to work on their projects; as a touring musician, Wayne spent many years with the ever-popular band Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, lending his distinctive and soulful touch as the primary keyboardist to the group’s energetic live show.
