DC Jazz Festival Announces Lineup

The DC Jazz Festival, celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, announced the schedule for its 2019 “Jazz in the ‘Hoods” lineup.

Presented by Events DC, the festival runs from June 7-16 with an array of music ranging from the traditional to the avant garde, in all four quadrants of the nation’s capital, featuring performances at more than 20 neighborhood venues.

“As the official convention and sports authority for Washington, D.C., we are proud to continue as presenting sponsor of DC JazzFest where D.C.’s deep-rooted jazz history will take center stage,” said Gregory O’Dell, president and chief executive officer of Events DC. “This annual citywide celebration brings residents and visitors of D.C. together to experience some of the best jazz in all corners of our city, at intimate spaces and non-traditional venues that reflect our culturally diverse nation’s capital.”

Jazz in the ‘Hoods represents an exciting DC JazzFest partnership with city clubs, restaurants, hotels, museums, parks, campuses, alternative and pop-up venues and more.

For the ninth consecutive year, Jazz in the ‘Hoods will include a major presentation from “CapitalBop,” one of DC JazzFest’s distinctive partnerships, which will present musicians at alternative venues and pop-ups.

This year’s show takes place June 8 and will include headlining sets from Georgia Anne Muldrow and Justin Brown’s Nyeusi.

Returning to the DCJF family for its eighth iteration, the “East River Jazz Series” presents free and affordably-priced performances and programs to thousands of residents east of the Anacostia River.
