Jazz at the Citizen: Joe Herrera Duo

This week we welcome trumpeter Joe Herrera.

From DCist:

"A native of Yuma, Arizona, Herrera began his musical journey at age 10, when he wanted to play the saxophone, but instead started on the trumpet because his father already had one. He became serious about music as a freshman in high school and would often raid the record collection his band director kept. Classic players like Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and John Coltrane caught the young musician's ear, and from there, his interest took off. After studies at Mesa Community College and Arizona State University, as well as stints as a musician on cruise ships, he began working regularly in and around Phoenix. An opportunity then arose for Herrera to move to D.C., which he did in 2003. He formed his first group, Joe Herrera's Landscaping Crew, in 2005, which featured area regulars Matt RippetoeBobby Muncy and Anthony Pirog. Things have only gone up from there.

Every Thursday night we host JAZZ at the CITIZEN - featuring some of D.C.'s best young players.

Whiskey Brothers: Exploring Barrel Proof Bourbon

Whiskey Brothers: Exploring Barrel Proof Bourbon

This one's for the bourbon die-hards among us. The Whiskey Bros are back in February for a class on barrel proof, or cask-strength bourbon. (This means the whiskey is bottled straight from the barrel. The resulting dram is extremely flavorful, with a much higher proof - typically in the 120-130proof range.) Most whiskeys are watered down out of the barrel to reach the more typical 80-100proof range. Not these puppies! Some would argue that barrel proof bourbon is the purest drinking experience you can have.

Tickets available here: https://whiskeybrosbarrelproof.eventbrite.com/
(Must be 21+ to attend)
