DC Jazz is a website dedicated to promoting Washington, D.C.’s vibrant, varied and surprisingly under-appreciated jazz scene. This site is designed to help everyone from novices to hardcore bopheads find live music that will fit their preferences on any given night. CapitalBop offers all of these features that you won’t find anywhere else:

  • a comprehensive, up-to-date calendar of all the jazz going on in Washington
  • a list of D.C. clubs complete with maps, profiles, contact information and essentials about pricing and food
  • a catalog of local jazz musicians, with their contact info
  • a steady stream of coverage — written articles and multimedia — on D.C. jazz music

In addition, CapitalBop produces live performances to showcase and stimulate the forward-focused creative thought that is occurring on the local jazz scene. At monthly D.C. Jazz Lofts, a variety of musicians present their music, which ranges across idioms — from acoustic to electric, bebop to free jazz. CapitalBop does not make any profit from these performances, and all proceeds go to the musicians.
