Let's levitate

Let's levitate.

Lev-i-tate: to rise or cause to rise and hover in the air, especially by means of supernatural or magical power

We're bringing the magical Dan Levinson's hand-picked, all-star musicians to Glen Echo's Bumper Car Pavilion on Saturday, October 22. Rise to the occasion and it'll be a supernatural experience for all.

Details? Levinson's a NYC-based specialist in traditional jazz and swing. He's spent 21 years becoming one of the most prolific musicians on the scene today, an "in-demand reedman" one might say. He'll be headlining a DC crew with our local outstandings including our favorite Craig Gildner. It'll be $18 at the door and we'll even throw in a free lesson at 8 p.m. to getcha in the groove. The main show starts at 9 p.m. – just like the usual Tuesday gigs. See you there for the magic.
