1073 Wisconsin Ave NW
Pianist and keyboardist Marcus Johnson is one of the most popular musicians in the city. While he’s known to occasionally sit in with other D.C. jazz cats, Johnson is most often found leading his own groups, letting his fingers slide smoothly across the ivories while the band rumbles lightly grooving funk behind him.
He performs his annual run of holiday shows at Blues Alley. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
