Great New Dates Coming for Fall! - July 30, 2013

Hope your summer's been wonderful so far!
Mine's passing way too quickly-Can August really be two days away?!!

We're lining up some fun things for Fall!
...for instance, we have some great dates lined up for the Trio in October!
We'll be returning to TO THE BLUE BAR @ The Henley Park Hotel...
Dates to be added to the website calendar soon.

So please check back if they're not there yet.
We're talking 10/5, 10/19, and 10/26!

We'll see you in the Fall if not before!

THE BLUE BAR resumes HOSTING JAZZ on SATURDAYS-BOBBE SHORE TRIO RETURNS SAT. 7/20/13 - June 21, 2013

THE BLUE BAR 926 Mass. Ave. NE, WASH., DC (202)638-5200

THE BLUE BAR is in the Henley Park Hotel, a very pretty boutique hotel. If you're interested in unique hotels that are not part of a chain, check out this one! The TAVERN RESTAURANT is connected/adjacent to THE BLUE BAR, so you can hear a bit of the music while dining in the restaurant, and finish with after dinner cocktails or coffee in The BLUE BAR, with a great seat, and be able to hear the band (and see them if desired). Food/service is good!

Always in need of better/more Jazz venues, the DC Jazz community is very excited to see this venue return to hosting Jazz on Saturdays. There is plenty of free street parking (after 6:30 PM), which is great.

The best way to ensure the success of THE BLUE BAR is to make sure that folks come out to hear the bands performing there! So please share the news about this great venue with friends and other Jazz fans. And please support us on 7/20, when the
Bobbe Shore Trio returns to celebrate "THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK"!
See you then.

Change in Calendar Format - April 4, 2012

Hi Everyone!
We're trying to change the way our "Calendar" looks, that's one of the reasons why you haven't seen any new dates showing up there. If/When we can get it to look the way we want,
hopefully you'll see something soon!

Thanks for your patience, and we hope to see you soon. :-)

HAPPY HOLIDAY! - December 18, 2011

This is the purrrrrrfect time to let you all know how much your support has meant this year (and throughout the years!)...what it's meant to me, and to the other musicians with whom I've shared the stage...as well as Jazz and Blues, definitely the coolest kitty cats walking on this planet! (...and they picked our house to live in!) No two feline sisters can dig the music and look at life quite like they do! (Ah...I know someone out there is thinking "My cat can"!)
And I'm sure I'm just being biased...how can I not be, really, when their names are "Jazz" and "Blues"?! Well yes, there probably are other cool cats! :-)

But I digress...
...as I was saying, if there were no "you", there could be no "us"! That's the plain truth!

So we want to say thanks, & send our very best to you. We wish you all the best in the 2012. We're sending you wishes for a New Year filled with good health and prosperity, laughter, and of course, MUSIC!

It's all around you, all you have to do is listen...
from a concert hall, to a "hole-in-the-wall- dive" with great food and even greater entertainment, or maybe you hear it in the rustle of the dried leaves scraping their way across the street...or the sound of a redder than red cardinal out calling it's mate... it's all music.

Whatever music you like, remember to make time to enjoy it whenever you can.
It's a simple pleasure that let's us know we're not alone in this world.

And that's a comforting thought to hold onto, whether you're listening to your favorite CD, or watching your favorite group perform live!

So, from both Bobbe Shore and First Call, and The Bobbe Shore Trio, have a Happy, Wonderful & Safe holiday, which ever holiday you celebrate!

We'll see you 2012!

Busy, Busy, Busy, Writing...! - October 1, 2011

Hi everyone. Just wanted to share some of what's going on and where I've been lately. We've played some nice private parties. Sometimes they are listed on the website, sometimes, at the client's request, we don't include them in the calendar (as has been the case lately).

Also I've been spending some time writing new tunes, both music and lyrics. That's a funny process. It either gushes out all together and it all fits magically together, the perfect melody and lyrics. And then there are more often the times when the melody is the medody you want, but the lyrics just aren't coming...& you have to walk away from it for how ever long it takes...2 days? 2 weeks? 2 months? You just move on and start a new project, (it's hard because it feels like you're abandoning your creation!), but it will come when it's the right time!

Sometimes a great lyric suddenly pops into your head and you put it to paper, and uh-oh, no music seems to fit it or do justice to it. So again, you try a few times but if you have to force it, that's the time to stop and leave it alone for a while. It will come. You may be in a class, or watching the stars one night, on driving in the car on the way to work...

I find my creativity is at its top form when I'm taking a walk, or even during my morning shower!!!

And when the lyrics and the music are "just right" you know it. Then you can't wait to hear the band embellish and add their touch to what you've written.

So you have the "high" of the song you wrote and the added "high" of hearing it interpreted by your musicians. It doesn't get much better than that! (Except when we finally start to perform that song live, in public!)

So that's what has been taking up a lot of my "free" time. I hope to put some new tunes on the next CD (not sure when that will be), but I look forward to it...and hope you do to!

I hope this finds everyone well and happy as Fall comes to town! Enjoy all the music in your life...it's all around you. All you have to do is listen.
Bobbe

IN-HOME CONCERTS: (Intimate Setting for Dinner Parties, Unique for Block Parties!) - June 12, 2011

"IN HOME CONCERTS":
We also do smaller concerts (almost acoustic, similar in "ambiance"!) with the Trio and Duo. These are perfect for "Intimate Dinner Parties" or for "Get to Know Your Neighbors Parties" , both of which can be held in-house, or on a deck, or by the pool...And the last idea is of today's version of a great "BLOCK PARTY", complete with LIVE MUSIC! Please inquire for more Information & details. What a blast these can be! The first two present a great opportunity to meet the artists, ask questions about anything...instruments, rehearsing, how often do we work? ... full time musicians or day jobs too? Best gig ever?! It's a fun "give and take" for both guests and musicians...
and a very unique way to entertain your guests and get to know the band! (and visa versa!)

The versatility of this performance concept is limited by only the imagination...that's the only thing that can get in the way. So think outside of the box when planning your next party, regardless of how small (or large), and enjoy the Duo or the Trio... (If space allows, then enjoy the Quartet or Quintet, by all means!)

Please feel free to contact bobbeshore@aol.com for promo material (incl. CD),
rates & asst'd. information. Thank you! We'd love to be playing at a house on your street next week...that would be YOUR HOUSE!

PLANNING A PARTY?! - June 11, 2011

THE BOBBE SHORE TRIO &
BOBBE SHORE & FIRST CALL
are currently booking both
SUMMER and FALL 2011
DATES, as well as we already have contracts for 2011 HOLIDAY BOOKINGS & we're taking new holiday party bookings as they come in!!! Don't procrastinate too long!

If you are looking for music for an event or party...be it to celebrate a GRADUATION
or maybe it's a big ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION or the GRAND OPENING of a restaurant or a wine & cheese shop, or any RETAIL STORE...THIS IS YOUR DREAM...THE GREAT AMERICAN DREAM!

What better way to celebrate than with the
"GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK"? (of Jazz Standards, Swing, and Blues)...the music that goes great with just about everything & appeals to every generation?!

This is the music that tells everyone's story in one way or another. You can sit back and relax with it, or you can get up on the dance floor (or make your own!) & jump, jive & swing to it!

Swing Dancing is really so much fun! (to do and also to watch!)

Feel free to contact us at the email address at the end of this article for booking and/or other information. We work closely with each client (and their event planner if requested) from day one, to cover all the details and to help organize the flow of events, etc. We are happy to answer questions you might have, or to provide an ear to listen, and if asked, we'll come up with suggestions and solutions. All this is done long before the event begins, to ensure that as host/hostess, you'll be relaxed and you'll be able to enjoy your own party...No stress for you that night, only FUN!!!

This won't be a "sterile, directions-in-the-box",
"could-be-anyone's" party! We make sure that your event reflects you through the presentation...& also the ambiance will reflect you (or the "Guest of Honor", if it's a Surprise Party)! We accomplish this over the course of the many conversations we'll have, prior to and leading up to your party. We're happy to provide referrals upon request, from clients who can relate their personal experiences working with us regarding level of "professionalism" both on and off-stage, and the quality of both our music & the performance...
We try to connect with everyone, through a song or just a smile!

Having said all that, we have performed at most of the finer hotels/private clubs/venues in the metro area, as well as many arts/music festivals. We'd be happy to send you a promo package with our CD & promo material, including Musician Bios, Songlist, Testimonials, Venue/Client listing, etc.

If you are interested in receiving a promo package with the above information please email me at:
bobbeshore@aol.com.

Thanks very much. We hope to see you at a gig soon, & we would love to talk with you about your party/event. We'd like to help you make your event be THE PARTY of the SEASON!...MAYBE EVEN the PARTY OF THE YEAR!!

Hmmm...well....
ACTUALLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, we REALLY just want to be sure that the party turns out to be the PARTY THAT YOU WANT IT TO BE! SO WHATEVER THAT THEME/CONCEPT IS, WE WILL DO EVERYTHING WITHIN OUR POWER, TO MAKE YOUR PARTY EXACTLY WHAT YOU HOPE AND DREAM FOR IT TO BE!

Let's talk about it a little while and see what you think! Promo Package (and referrals) upon request.


Here's a Great Way to Make Your Get-Together Fun,
Unique, and Memorable!

Consider...

EXTRA VIRGIN THIS SATURDAY: CATCH the "GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK", with BOBBE SHORE (vocals) & HARRY APPELMAN (keyboard) , 7:30 PM - 11:30 PM! - April 18, 2011

I always have a great time when Harry's on keyboards, whether I'm out listening to him play with any one of the many groups he works with...but I especially enjoy it when the group he's working with is mine!

Saturday, 4/23, it'll be just the two of us at EXTRA VIRGIN in SHIRLINGTON, off of RT. 395. Come on out and enjoy the tasty Italian fare, luscious cocktails, and fun JAZZ from the "GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK", to go with the wonderful food and drinks.

Dine al Fresco (weather permitting) or relax in the dining room and enjoy an evening of "Cabaret Style" Jazz...(Think Sinatra, Ella, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, & Michael Buble among others!)

Celebrating an occasion? Let us know and we'll celebrate it with you!

VALENTINE'S DAY @ MSB&G - February 19, 2011

Excerpt About MSB&G Taken From The
Reston Connection:

"If you haven’t tried the place before, Valentine’s Day is an excellent day to try [it] for the first time," said Adam Dean, beverage manager. "We do our best to create a romantic atmosphere with excellent food and service."

Diners can choose between three different appetizers and five main courses as part of their dinner. On Feb. 12, there will also be live jazz starting at 8:30 p.m., featuring the Bobbe Shore and the Trio.

"My wife and I have been to Market Street Bar and Grill many times on Saturday night, and we’ve always had a good experience," said Kenny Bishop of Reston. "We’re always looking to mix it up for our Valentine’s dinner, so we’re going to give it a try. The atmosphere is pretty special there normally, so I think we’ll do well there."

BOBBE SHORE TRIO SAYS GOODBYE TO MSB&G - February 6, 2011

THE TRIO HAS PERFORMED AT MARKET STREET BAR & GRILL IN RESTON TOWN CENTER FOR THE LAST YEAR AND IT'S BEEN A BLAST BUILDING THE JAZZ FAN BASE TO THE POINT THAT THE VENUE AGAIN HAS WHAT WE CALL "REGULARS"!!

BUT IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON & THE TRIO IS LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME. THE TRIO, WHICH PERFORMS THERE EVERY SATURDAY, WILL PLAY OUR LAST DATE AT MSB&G ON SAT. 2/26.

WE INVITE YOU ALL TO JOIN US FOR THE LAST FEW DATES, ALL SATURDAYS:
2/12 (for their VALENTINES CELEBRATION), 2/19, & 2/26.

AFTER THAT, WE'RE NOT SURE YET WHERE WE'LL BE GOING AS WE ARE IN CONVERSATION WITH A FEW VENUES. IF YOU KNOW OF A VENUE OR HAVE SUGGESTIONS, WE'RE ALWAYS OPEN TO LISTENING, OR IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BOOKING THE TRIO, OR QUINTET, FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME ON THIS WEBSITE or @ bobbeshore@aol.com .
(We are currently taking bookings for summer weddings as well as holiday parties!)

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR MAKING OUR BOOKING AT MARKET STREET SO MUCH FUN & SO SUCCESSFUL! WE CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT this past year!

"For So Long" at The Museum Shops at both THE SMITHSONIAN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY and at THE HIRSHHORN MUSEUM! The CD features 12 great standards and 2 tracks of original music and lyrics, (a Blues shuffle called "Chino Blues" and the CD title track, a '40s style ballad, called "For So Long") Check back here often as we'll be sure to let you know...right here...when all is in place and ready to go.

If you have visitors coming for summer vacations, you are invited to bring them out to a show...and if you do the tourist/museum visit thing during the day, please be sure to stop in for a stroll through the Museum Gift Shop at either the HIRSHHORN or MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY, and let them find/stumble upon the CD themselves!!!

Half Had Not Been Told to Me: The African American History of Lafayette Square


Lafayette Square is a unique landscape with a rich African American history - a history that is unfortunately not often told. This spring, Decatur House shares the little-known stories of Africans Americans on the Square in a new audio walking tour, Half Had Not Been Told to Me: The African American History of Lafayette Square. The tour debuted on April 16, in celebration of Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia, and is offered free of charge, seven days a week, using a surprising new technology - the cell phone.

Participants only need a cell phone and tour map, available at Decatur House, and they will be on their way to exploring the rich African American history of the neighborhood of the president.

››› Pick up a map during our open hours to access the cell phone audio tour.
