* Leonard Brown & Joyful Noise ***FINAL SHOW OF BOHEMIAN CAVERNS***

March 26, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
Bohemian Caverns
2001 11th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20001

Bohemian Caverns will not end with a bang or a whimper but something much more fitting for the historic venue: a Joyful Noise. The group of DC cats–Allyn Johnson on piano, Kris Funn on bass, and Nasar Abadey on drums–are no strangers to the caverns, having performed over many years in many different configurations and groups. They are led by Dr. Leonard Brown, a saxophone stalwart and crucial figure in the cultural study of jazz. Dr. Brown is the co-founder of the annual John Coltrane Memorial concert, and a frequent performer in it. Through both his tenor and soprano horns you hear echoes of Trane’s spirit and quest for sonic ascension. Together with some of DC’s finest musicians, Dr. Brown & Joyful Noise will lead Bohemian Caverns into a final, joyful cadence. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.

***Please note, this is the last show scheduled at Bohemian Caverns for the foreseeable future. The Caverns, as well as Tap & Parlour and Liv Nightclub, close up shop under the current management on March 31.

Please help us thank Omrao and the rest of the Bohemian Caverns team for the last 10 years of incredible jazz programming in our cities finest and oldest jazz venue.
