The Jazz Perpetrators will fill out their September calendar with two additional dates: this Friday, September 16 at the Annapolis location of Smashing Grapes and Sunday, September 25 at Brian Boru Irish Pub in Severna Park.

Catch The Perps this Friday night, September 16, at the Annapolis location of the Smashing Grapes kitchen + wine bar at 177 Jennifer Road, right off Rt. 50 and adjacent to the Annapolis Mall. The band starts at 8 and plays until 11pm. Smashing Grapes is the perfect setting for the band’s patented “high spirits, low volume” delivery of instrumental jazz and R&B favorites. Stop on by, sit back, have a sip, and relax to music that will put you in the groove.

You have one more chance to the see The Perps this month on Sunday, September 25, when they play at Brian Boru Irish Pub, located right at 489 Ritchie Highway #103 in Severna Park. We had so much fun the last time we were there that we just had to do it again. This afternoon performance (3-7pm) will feature the band’s singer extraordinaire, the one-and-only Sterling Dorn. Sterling’s guaranteed to get things groovin’ with his smooth delivery and soulful style — when Sterling’s singing and the band’s swinging, it doesn’t get any better – c’mon down and party with The Perps!

The Perps are Back in Black

Posted: September 6, 2022 in Latest News

It’s September and time for The Jazz Perpetrators to bring their “high spirits, low volume” musical magic back to the Blackwall Hitch’s Sunday brunch. This Sunday, September 11, The Perps will perform in the Hitch’s bar/buffet area from 10am until 2pm, providing relaxing music perfectly suited to blend with the Hitch’s excellent cuisine and sophisticated ambiance. As with all appearances at Blackwall Hitch, this will be an all-instrumental performance.

So set your calendar reminder and your phone alarm so you don’t miss this latest opportunity to enjoy a fantastic musical and dining experience. Blackwall Hitch is located at 400 Sixth Street in Eastport, just over the Spa Creek bridge near the Annapolis city dock. Come on down and chill – see you there!

With back-to-back gigs this weekend, Perps fans will have two chances to see their favorite musical miscreants in two different formations in two different settings.

The Perps start the weekend off on Friday with a nine-to-midnight soiree at the Smashing Grapes Gambrills location situated in the Waugh Chapel Towne Centre on Rt 3/301 just south of Rt 97. As per house request, this will be an instrumental performance. Sit back with your favorite beverage (wine or other) and relax to the famous “high spirits low volume” delivery of The Perps as they ease you into the weekend.

Vocalist Sterling Dorn joins The Perps on Saturday as they provide the musical entertainment for one of their favorite causes, the Goshen Farm Preservation Society’s annual Wine Tasting & Raffle fund raising event. Cancelled during the pandemic, the event and the band return in full form in support of a very special cause. The event is now held at the Cape St. Claire Clubhouse at 1223 River Bay Road, Annapolis, MD 21409 and will run from 4 until 7 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at https://goshenfarm.org/events/wine-tasting-fundraiser/ for $25 or at the door for $30 (cash or check only).

See you this weekend!

This entire week is going to be one big solar slam fest.

This Sunday, July 24, The Perps will once again provide musical entertainment for the Hitch’s renowned Sunday brunch with a performance in the bar/buffet area from 10am until 2pm. The food will be warm, but the musical vibe will definitely be cool as the band’s “high spirits, low volume” sounds provide the perfect laid-back setting for a fine dining experience.

February’s a mess. It’s short, it’s cold, the days are gray and damp (lots of precipitation, liquid or solid – sometimes both in the same day), and, hey, have you taken down those Christmas lights yet? Generally not much to get excited about.

But when it comes to wine, women and song, Valentine’s Day and the Jazz Perpetrators are here to save the day. Keep the love light burning with a relaxing pre-Valentine’s Day outing this weekend (Feb. 13) at the Annapolis Blackwall Hitch’s popular Sunday brunch. The Perps and their patented “high spirits/low volume” music combine with the Hitch’s superb cuisine to create the perfect atmosphere to wrap up your weekend. The music starts at 10am and runs until 2pm. As with all previous performances at the Hitch, this will be an all-instrumental appearance.
