John Pizzarelli

June 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
Blues Alley
1073 Wisconsin Ave NW
DC 20007
$40-45 (Plus $5 Admission and $12 Minimum)

Nostalgia is supposed to come with heartache and hurt, right? Not in John Pizzarelli’s musical universe, a cleanly defined realm where popular songs are wholesome and potable, and the jazz chops always serve an air of refinement. The son of Bucky Pizzarelli has developed an international reputation for his guitar work and crooning vocals; in both cases, panache is his stock in trade. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
