    On March 16, WBGO will celebrate 30 years of Felix Hernandez and Rhythm Revue with a dance party at NJPAC in Newark. The party, which begins at 7:30pm, will feature the great classic soul Felix's audiences love, with some special surprises. This is a party with a purpose: proceeds from the event support WBGO 88.3FM, which is the original home of Rhythm Revue - all the way back to 1986! Tickets are available for $88, and there will be a cash bar.

  • At The DC Jazz Loft

    January 28, 2016

    Jazz has its capital cities: major hubs like New York, Chicago and New Orleans. But the music manages plenty well in many other places, too. What goes into those smaller ecosystems to enable jazz to thrive? How do talented musicians make it happen? In search of some answers, we sought out the DIY concert producers of CapitalBop in Washington, D.C., as they presented artists from the Baltimore-Washington area. And we met with the musicians themselves — in one case, touring the place he calls home.

    Jazz Night In America presents highlights from CapitalBop's converted-warehouse "loft" stage at the 2015 DC Jazz Festival, featuring bands led by vibraphonist Warren Wolf and bassist Kris Funn.
