Big Bertha's Rhythm Kings
     April 29, 2018, 2-5pm.
Rosensteel Knights of Columbus of Silver Spring , 9707 Rosensteel Avenue, Silver Spring, MD Directions

Big Bertha


BIG BERTHA’S RHYTHM KINGS was formed in 1988 as an outlet gig for a group of grumpy sideman looking for a contractor-free space in which to play. They found a home on Wednesday nights at Bertha's Dining Room and Bar in the Fells Point section of Baltimore, Maryland. They have continued there, evolving with the inevitable personnel changes, ever since. Their repertoire consists of all the traditional jazz pieces that never get played anymore, performed with as much reckless abandon as required to maintain a creative discomfort. They approach each piece as ensemble improvisation, while retaining particularly felicitous results as infrastructure for the next pass at the song. Founded by John Wessner and Henning Hoehne, the band includes: Tom Holtz on Brass Bass, William Goffigan on drums, Jeff Reynolds on guitar, John Wessner on trombone, and Henning Hoehne on Soprano Sax

Directions:: From the Beltway, exit south on Georgia Ave. The church is on the east side of Georgia, immediately south of the beltway (that would be on your left).

Continue thru the parking lot and turn left onto the exit street, Seminary Place. From there, you will be able to safely and easily get back to Georgia Avenue because there is a traffic light at Seminary Place.
