The Set List:


Welcome to the third edition of The Set List! My name is NG (Naomi-Grace) Panlaqui. Together with Nameer Rizvi, we are the Hill East-based developer-couple behind DC Music Live, a mobile app that aggregates live and virtual music events in DC. Every other Wednesday, expect a list of upcoming shows on and off the Hill, reviews of past shows, and more. 

Without further ado,

Last Weekend

Golden hour was shining brightly on the bricks of Pennsylvania Ave SE as I walked to Mr. Henry’s, excited to attend my first Jazz Jam and the second Jazz Jam of the post-pandemic season from the Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation.

Every Wednesday you can swing by Mr. Henry’s from 8-11pm and vibe to talented instrumentalists and vocalists playing a range of songs–from classic standards to the latest jazz track trending on TikTok. If it’s your first time, you’ll find everyone up the stairs. Chairs and tables are towards the front, a bar and standing room are at the back. Order the mozzarella sticks if you can.

Even towards the end of the night, it was difficult to find free standing room. The musicians were creating pure magic and everyone seemed to feel it. “The vibration of a live band in a small space, the alchemy of making music with strangers, collective applause – all after over a year of going without? We missed this,” said singer/comedian Farrell Parker over IG. “I’ve also never known a more welcoming group of players, jazz fans, and restaurant staff than the ones who show up at Mr. Henry’s on Wednesday nights.”

If you haven’t been to a Jazz Jam before, this is an experience you don’t want to put off. Come early if you’re bringing friends to grab dinner and seats at a table. It might just turn into your regular thing.

About the Set List

The Set List is written by NG (Naomi-Grace) Panlaqui, one half of the developer couple behind DC Music Live, where you can find aggregated music shows happening near you by neighborhood, venue, or metro line. We’re partnering with The Hill Is Home to provide upcoming shows on and off the Hill, show reviews, and more.

Supporting and promoting the venues and artists that bring us live music in our beloved city has become of great importance, especially as we emerge from the pandemic. If you attend a show, take a picture and give us a shout! #DCMusicLive
