We love the Blues and found this little place in Georgetown in the alley off of Wisconsin and M. We made reservation to see an old Blues Harmonica player and his band. This was a small dark place with lots of character. The tickets were reasonable. They had food but we only ordered a drink. There are two shows, 8 and 10. We did the late show. We felt they would be more warmed up. The place was not crowded so we were very comfortable.All in all a great night for the Blues

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Saturday 10 p.m. show with Kim Waters--awesome! Cozy and intimate. Up close and personal. History and tradition. And great jazz artists. My husband and I are smooth jazz lovers and so we were naturally blown away. We took our adult children to their first contemporary jazz experience and they loved it, too. They live in DC, but had not visited this establishment. I think we will all be back for a return show-- just not soon enough. Live music is such a joy to experience!

We took some friends who had never been to Blues Alley. They could not believe how fun & personal the show was. This is a DC institution, you must check it out.

It was the fourth show of Rachelle Ferrell at Blues Alley in a weekend. Athmosphere was perfect, nice sound, nice people and nice evening. Be there for a perfect quality time. Nice food, nice drinks, great service.
