Come to play at Alice's Jazz and Cultural Society, the most authentic Jazz club in the Washington D.C. area! Alice's Jazz and Cultural Society is looking for Sonicbids artists to play this fall and winter. With a dedicated local following, this is a great way to build your reputation and play with other great bands.

The Opportunity

Alice's Jazz and Cultural Society is an intimate Jazz club in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, D.C. that presents live music twice a week (Wednesdays and Sundays, 6-9 pm). It's the love-child of Dr. Alice Jamison, who owns the building, and trumpeter, artistic director and building contractor DeAndrey Howard, who spent five years renovating the formerly dilapidated storefront into a friendly, intimate, nonprofit, alcohol-free, soul-food-available space that hosts local bands and all-age (under 12, free) audiences.

The Band

Alice's is looking for genuine performers that play classic Jazz music. No synthesizers or non-upright basses allowed! This is a platform for accomplished Jazz players to play for an audience that appreciates traditional Jazz music.
