After months of preparation and three rounds of auditions, a new team of cheerleaders danced to “Hail to the Redskins” together for the first time Sunday in Bethesda.
The final stop in the audition process to pick the 2014 Redskins cheerleaders was a ticketed event at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club. For a full house of friends and fans, 60 women showed off their dance, cheer and modeling skills in a bid to join the “first ladies of football.”

"The acts include not just jazz musicians, like Branford Marsalis, but country singers, pop stars and comedians. The venue also welcomes weddings, bar mitzvahs and community events…This weekend, bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys will perform there. Future musicians include Pablo Cruise, America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and the Blackbyrds."
"The lights were dim, glasses of Prosecco were poured, and we were all waiting patiently for the show to begin. We were seated at the best table in the house at the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club for a birthday celebration. Coincidentally, it was also the club’s 1-year anniversary. The evening’s show was titled “Hot Mess Burlesque,” and promised to be a mixture of Mardi Gras themed music, as well as performances by top burlesque dancers from North Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia.”

"The Crawdaddies are not strictly a zydeco band: The Baltimore group works blues, ska and roots rock into its accordion-fueled gumbo. But this anything-goes attitude also makes for a fun party that appeals to all ages. The dance floor at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club will be table-free for the Crawdaddies Mardi Gras show, which includes two sets beginning at 8 p.m."

Country music legend talks about Christmas, life and her famous family:
“It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done,” Judd said of her Christmas show. “It makes complete sense from where I’m at in my life, which is we’re all pretty jaded and we’re all pretty spoiled rotten and we have what we need. I wanted to get back to simplicity because my own children are grown … I just see how lucky we are. … I wanted this tour to be joyful, I wanted it to be about music and not about production with wardrobe changes and lights. I wanted it to be just me sitting on a stool using my God-given talents.”
DCist interviewed drummer extraordinaire Cindy Blackman-Santana, who will lead her band, Another Lifetime, on Friday at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.
“This gig in Bethesda will be our first gig in the U.S. since the release of the CD, so it’s like the premier, and I’m really excited about it. ”
“The Cuban pianist Omar Sosa’s latest album is called Eggún, or “spirit of the ancestors” in the Yoruba/Santería spiritual tradition that Sosa celebrates, and it pays tribute to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue…Sosa arrives in the area on Friday evening to perform with most members of the ensemble that recorded Eggún.”
"Local guitarist and singer Tom Principato will celebrate the release of his 17th solo album, “Robert Johnson Told Me So,” with a CD release party at the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club on Saturday night…Saturday will not be Principato’s first performance at the newly renovated Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club. He’s performed at the club once since its 2012 opening and multiple times before it was remodeled. He said he feels the revitalization was important for the local blues and jazz scene that he’s been a part of for so many years.
“The renovation and what they have done is beautiful,” Principato said. “Any venue that supports local music [and tries] to bring in top-drawer talent is important to the scene.”””
