Well known DC performer Gary Rowe returns. Glen Echo Heights House Concert & Potluck. SOLOX house concert: Red Lantern at Milo just off Massachusetts Av in Woodacres.
Gary Rowe is a pianist, composer and teacher who balances years of formal education with years of practical experience in a multitude of genres. His expressive piano style is a jazz centered synthesis of a myriad of influences, from Bach to Rock. University of California Santa Barbara (BA, music composition-1976) and at San Francisco State University in the graduate program in composition; 10 years composing and producing soundtrack music for documentaries, commercials, and corporate videos, and has performed extensively in the Bay Area, throughout the West, and in his hometown of Washington, D.C (Watergate, 709, Hay-Adams, Cosmos Club). Program: "The musical theme is doubles:
2 Duke, 2 Monk, 2 Brubeck etc, Then, since I’m most comfortable when people are eating and talking, (all my gigs are restaurants, hotels and clubs), I’ll play background/foreground music while people eat and drink. That will be different and people won’t have to stay late". This is the 76th SOLOX concert at the Red Lantern at Milo, since 2010, and the 27th with GroupMuse. EXPECTING 30-35 PAID ATTENDEES.
