Declared “DC’s sentry guards at the cutting edge of jazz” by Washington City Paper, CapitalBop is dedicated to presenting, promoting, and preserving jazz in the District. From the start, it has served as both an online resource and presenter of innovative shows. Capitalbop.com lists every upcoming jazz event in the area, complemented by a steady stream of articles (artist interviews, profiles of unsung jazz heroes, reviews, and more) that aim to welcome audiences of all kinds. Likewise, its monthly DC Jazz Loft concerts, educational events, and other shows adopt a diverse and often unorthodox approach – whether presenting in an empty warehouse or art gallery, pairing innovative international artists with DC’s finest local musicians, or showcasing young and experimental talent. This year, dozens of shows will reach thousands of audience members, united in appreciation for this historic, dynamic genre. Feel the vibe!
