Target Family Night: KW Big Band "The Music of Michael Kramer and Tim Whalen"

8/20/2019 at 6:00 PM

Target Family Night: KW Big Band is a Washington, DC-based jazz ensemble co-led by guitarist Michael Kramer and pianist Tim Whalen. This 17-piece band is a showcase for Kramer and Whalen’s original music, and is comprised of some of the best musicians in the area. The band made its sold-out debut in February 2019 at DC’s legendary Blues Alley, and simply blew the audiences away! They're gearing up to record their first album this summer, and will be playing that music at their Millennium Stage performance.
