New Vintage Jazz & Wine Fest
Saturday, August 24, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Introducing D.C.’s first jazz and wine festival! Come relax at the Fairgrounds, a beautiful outdoor venue across the street from Nationals Park, sample over a dozen world-class wines, and experience the latest sounds in modern and classic jazz.
The New Vintage Jazz & Wine Festival runs from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., with live music from the Funk Ark, an Afrobeat dance ensemble from D.C.; Diggs Duke, a young, modernist soul-jazz singer and producer; Todd Marcus, a Baltimorean clarinetist whose latest album made NPR’s top-10-of-2012 list; and electric-acoustic guitar whiz Rafiq Bhatia, who hails from New York City and has recently drawn praise fromthe New York Times, Pitchfork and The Fader. Kris Funn & Corner Store,Tarus Mateen and Christie Dashiell round out the slate of local favorites.
As a strong supporter of the arts and community involvement in Washington, D.C., Art Whino will add visual vibrancy and complexity to the event with two live painting stations where artists will create large scale pieces for silent auction. Throughout the day, these pieces will evolve into finished works contributing to the sensory experience of the festival and fostering the innate relationship between art and music.
