No Trick Pony rides again–
No Trick Pony 2/1/23 7pm at Arts Club DC
No Trick Pony is a Washington, DC power-trio. Consisting of seasoned DC veterans Amy K. Bormet (piano, voice), Keith Butler (drums), and Brian Settles (saxophone), the group presents a unique sound that most often finds Bormet constructing song, poetry, and harmony, above a quiet tornado of exploration from Settles and Butler underneath. Though each member is steeped in streams of traditionally defined music — jazz, popular music, punk, and classical, to name a few — the group tends to focus on a deconstruction of the strict barriers of jazz, exploring instead on the transitional points between composition and improvisation. Groove abounds as a way to moor the listener in these explorations, which have the uncanny ability to present as both song and not-song. No Trick Pony has appeared at The Duck Pond in Georgetown, Rhizome DC in Takoma Park, and was a featured billing as part of the 2022 Capital Fringe Festival.

Opening night of the DCJazz Festival!
A great night watching the incredible Christie Dashiell! What a treat to see her on the big stage, my true friend from our Howard University and inaugural WWJF days! Big thanks to L A Randall (who takes so many great photos of the DC Jazz scene, including several for Washington Women in Jazz Festival!) And a special shoutout to Staci Griesbach from LA, who reached out to me to be her +1 VIP. Thanks for the hang, and the hors d’oeuvres! <3
P.S. Check out my up-and-coming homies vocalist Bridgett Nesfield and drummer Kendell Haywood!
