Join us for an entertainment experience you will not forget! This band’s new live stage production is premiering in Alexandria, Virginia as the first stop on a planned National tour, and the timing could not be better. American Spirit takes us back to the 1960s and reflects on how five individuals worked to bring our country together in the most trying times. There was intense racial strife and a nuclear showdown. But unlike the politicians media, and celebrities  of today. Those in a positions to make a difference chose to unite rather than to divide. Politicians spoke words of inclusiveness, a spiritual leader suffered incredible indignities but never related the actions of a few to an entire race. The music industry and its performances were writing and singing music to appeal to all. You will hear the incredible powerful words as the were actually spoken by John Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy during the times of national crises. In addition you will be transported back in the time for three live tributes to actual concerts: Motown’s 1963 Motortown revue at the Apollo Theater. Frank Sinatra and Count Basie’s “Concert of the Century” at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in 1966, and to the Fox Theater in Detroit for Motown’s final Motortown revue in 1968. Hear over forty songs that you know and love all performed live in upbeat, fast-paced medleys by our incredibly talented cast of musicians. Your emotions will run the gamut but you will never experience another show where you will be dancing in your seat one minute and bought to tears the next.

On Behalf of the Carlyle Club: Hail Hail Rock n Roll Tribute to Chuck Berry
Nov 17 @ 8:00 pm

The influence of Chuck Berry’s music is incalculable. From rock to hip-hop, country to jazz, Berry’s music provided the foundation for popular music as we know it. From formative hits like Johnny B. Goode and You Never Can Tell, Berry’s music completely altered the musical landscape. Join some of DC’s finest musicians to celebrate the music which gave life to virtually all that came afterward.

Meet the band: Kenny Pirog (vocals, guitar): Pirog spearheads area rock & roll group Wanted Man, introducing elements of blues, surf rock, and rockabilly to the Washington, DC, music scene.

Anthony Pirog (lead guitar): Pirog is making his mark on the guitar-playing universe, one sonically enthralling, diversely influenced project at a time. Pirog challenges our preconceived notions about genre and guitar sound with aplomb.
DARYL DAVIS earned his Bachelor of Music Degree from Howard University in Washington, DC where he was a member of their world famous and renowned Jazz Vocal Ensemble. In addition to being a vocalist, guitarist, and composer, DARYL is a keyboardist extraordinaire. Upon graduation, DARYL went on to work with such artists as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Platters, The Drifters, The Coasters, Bo Diddley, Percy Sledge, and Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave), to name a few.

Elijah Jamal Balbed (saxophone): An alumnus of Howard University’s legendary jazz program, saxophonist, composer, educator, and activist Balbed has been named Artist of the Year (2016), Best Tenor Saxophonist (2013), and Best New Jazz Musician (2010) by the Washington City Paper.

John Previti (bass): During the early 60s, Previti grew up immersed in the region’s bubbling cauldron of musical styles: swing, country, jazz, R&B, soul, and rockabilly, leading to an 18-year stint playing with guitar legend Danny Gatton.
Larry Ferguson (drums): Ferguson is known for his incredible timing and technique behind the drum set. Able to provide a keen sense of rhythm to any variety of musical genre playing, from orchestral to jazz and rock, Ferguson is a first-call drummer.
