This weekend, July 8-11 2017, the intrepid six travel up north to play for hundreds of people and hundreds of thousands of pine trees! With shows in St Johnsbury, Greensboro and Derby Line Vermont, we’re covering at least… well, about 1/1,200th of the state with Mocha Frappacino-ey musical goodness.
In fact, the heck with it – the good old U.S. of A. can’t even contain us – our show in Derby Line is square on the U.S./Canada border. The guys on the right side of the stage are wearing Canadian Mountie hats, and the guys on the left are wearing big ten-gallon jobbers. They may or may not be working on “the Wall” in the middle of the stage during our performance, you’ll know if you hear a jackhammer during the trombone solos (pls post jokes below).
Either way the shows will be YUUGE, featuring music from our most recent release, The Lock & The Key.
We hope to see our New England buddies at one (or more) of the shows!! And maybe some bears…
Celebrate with us!
It’s 2017, and Chaise Lounge has a brand-new album. The CD is called The Lock & the Key, and we can hardly wait to welcome it to the world with you. We hope you’ll join us at a record release event on Friday, January 27 at AMP (powered by Strathmore).
With a very cool cover by artist Adriana Cordero, the CD is now pressed and ready for you to add to your collection. You may already have heard us play a few of the numbers, which include “A Cold, Cold Day in New Orleans,” “The Sweet Ride Home,” and “My Baby Just Cares for Me.” But we promise the event will have plenty of surprises as well.
If you haven’t been to AMP, you’ll find it in North Bethesda, near the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Rockville Pike. There’s ample paid parking in an adjacent garage, and the club is a 7-minute walk from the White Flint Metro station. You can get tickets for the show here. Hope to see you!
In observance of Veterans Day, the American Festival Pops Orchestra presents a concert of uplifting pops sounds to honor all of those who have served and sacrificed to keep us safe. Enjoy a lively program of patriotic favorites and American standards including “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” “American Salute,” “Liberty Fanfare” by John Williams, and other works by Aaron Copland. Of course, no patriotic concert is complete without a stirring medley of John Phillips Sousa marches, including “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” In this special concert, the talented musicians of the American Festival Pops Orchestra give an exuberant performance, conducted by the charming and accomplished conductor, Anthony Maiello.
$50, $43, $30. 1 Free Student Ticket Available with Mason ID on Nov. 1, 2016

The sweet, sultry Valentine’s sounds of Marilyn Older & Chaise Lounge. You and your sweetheart. Friday night February 12. Those three things go together like roses, strawberries dipped in chocolate and those cute, nasty little sweet tarts we used to give each other in grade school.

It has been a long time coming—more than two years!—but our new CD, Gin Fizz Fandango, is finally ready for its unveiling. We’d love for you to come celebrate with us…and hear us play the music live. We’re having a CD release event on September 26 at Montgomery County’s groovy new music venue, AMP (powered by Strathmore). The club is swanky, the sound system first-rate, and Chaise Lounge is jazzed (ha!) to perform this retro-fresh slate of story songs and red-hot instrumentals. Won’t you join us? For tickets, visit ampbystrathmore.com or call 301-581-5100.

Nothing says Christmas like a children’s choir…unless it’s a children’s choir plus the East Coast’s grooviest jazz act. At Chaise Lounge’s annual Christmas show, the acclaimed sextet—fresh from tours in California and Wisconsin—will be joined by the North Chevy Chase Elementary School Holiday Glee Club and other delights of the season. With its signature mix of cheeky wit and retro-lounge cool, Chaise Lounge will bring hip holiday cheer to the historic Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.
A Real-Life Mambo This Saturday, March 1, at 4:30 pm, Chaise Lounge plays a free, hourlong concert as part of the annual Intersections arts festival at DC’s historic Atlas Theater. In keeping with the festival’s theme, we’ll “intersect” with another arts group to accompany a dance piece created for our song “Mambo Noir.” The piece, choreographed by Christopher Doyle, will feature Sam Rodriguez and Sophie Doyle, members of the Maryland Youth Ballet studio company. We would love for you to see the results of this first-time collaboration! Stick around afterwards to hear Charlie and other festival composers in a “Composer Conversation.” Though the event is free, tickets are required. You can snag yours here.
