Nearly four decades later, they're still making a mockery of our democracy to the amusement of snowflakes and deplorables everywhere! Always well received, they're as popular in Washington as they are around the country. They've even performed for the last five presidents – six if you count Hillary. Hey-oh!

    Here's a rare chance to see two iconic bands on the same night, performing their greatest hits! When it comes to transporting music fans back to the sunny '70s, few bands can top the magic of Orleans. "Still the One"! "Dance with Me"! And so many more hits with their pitch-perfect harmonies and catchy melodies, they send out a refreshing vibe wherever they go. As these gifted musicians take the stage and perform each satisfying selection, audiences can't help but move to the rhythm and sing along. Poco became one of the first vocal groups to meld country and rock into a unique sound all its own. Using rich harmonies, country instruments and rock 'n' roll rhythms, the band produced several critically-acclaimed albums, including 1969's Pickin' Up the Pieces, which Rolling Stone called "the perfect album." Whether you're a longtime "Poconut" or discovering the band for the first time, their music continues to captivate.

  37. Reginald Robinson & Taslimah Bey: An Evening of Ragtime Piano

    September 21, 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM @ Family Piano

    Before the terms Classical and Jazz were used to describe music, composers Jim Europe, Scott Joplin and other African American musicians created a unique form so special that it needed its own word to describe it – “Ragtime”. In addition to impacting the music world, these composers broke social barriers and created an art form with lasting impact. Detroit renowned jazz virtuoso Taslimah Bey and master ragtime pianist Reginald Robinson continue this heritage, breathing life to old favorites, unearthing little known compositions, and stunning original music. The two connect the dots between New Orleans and Motown, and bring ragtime history alive when they play the music of Jelly Roll Morton and Scott Joplin.
