Get the Rockin Pneumonia
I love rock and roll piano, especially that classic boogie-woogie sound. I also love that Daryl Davis landed here. Daryl is one of DC's best bad ass piano players, and the only person I know who owns a collection of Klu Klux Klan formal wear. For many years now, Daryl has been on a remarkable one man mission to understand racists by befriending white men wearing hoods. (That is when he wasn't playing keys with Chuck Berry.) Check out Daryl's crazy amazing story here.
This Saturday Daryl will be hosting Chuck Berry's Birthday Party at one of the newest clubs in town- Pearl Street Warehouse. (Chuck would have been 91 yesterday.) If you didn't make it to last weekend's opening festivities down at the Wharf, this is a show well worth considering.
