Happy back-to-school!

After a superb summer complete with a tour to Japan, and 5 weeks of teaching at Davey Yarborough’s Washington Jazz Arts Institute, I’m back at Howard for my final year in the graduate jazz studies program.

I have a great show coming up this Saturday as part of the Dance DC festival. From 5-6pm I am thrilled to be performing at Bohemian Caverns http://www.bohemiancaverns.com/
with 2 different groups of my favorite musicians!

Amy K Bormet Quartet- with Brian Settles, Karine Chapdelaine, and CV Dashiell. We will perform all new songs I have written over the past summer.

Aqui Oh- led by Matt Dievendorf with Chuck Navyac, Mark Levine, and Karine Chapdelaine. We will perform songs by Toninho Horta, Jacob do Bandolim, Antonio Carlos Jobim and original compositions!

Best of all its free!

John Kocur Alto Sax, Oliver Albertini Bass, CV Dashiell Drums


This Tuesday, August 4th I’ll be performing as part of the John Kocur Quartet.

John is a great alto player that I have been working with for the last year, and this Tuesday is his CD release party featuring his original compositions and the talents of Oliver Albertini on bass and C.V. Dashiell on drumset.
Always a dynamic and energetic group, we will be playing two shows, 8 & 10pm! Come check us out, you can buy advance tickets on the Blues Alley website $18.
