Tyler Leaks Freeform

  • Marvin 2007 14th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

Band plays from 7 pm- 10 pm. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Happy hour is from 6:00 pm-7 pm. No cover, no tickets, no reservations just really good music and cocktails.

The 2017 edition of the Jazzies named young DC drummer Tyler Leak as a rising star on the scene. “The young drummer…has an aura of joy in his craft that evokes New York great Brian Blade,” it said, “and Leak seems to be in pursuit of Blade’s imagination and precision as well. He’s gaining on it.” That goes double for the imagination part. Leak channels his considerable youthful energy into interesting textural ideas, smart subdivisions, and a melodic sensibility so complete that you could happily sit through a solo drum concert by him.
