Join us as we launch a year-long celebration of BlackRock’s 15th Anniversary!
This special evening begins with scrumptious hors d’oeuvres in our beautiful lobby followed by a featured performance by the Hot Sardines.
We will all raise a flute of champagne to mark this major milestone, mingle with the members of The Hot Sardines, BlackRock’s talented team, your new Executive Director, Alyona Ushe and the wonderful members of the Board of Trustees.
As we celebrate our history…
“What was missing was a community gathering place,” said County Executive Douglas M. Duncan, “For a community to have a sense of spirit, a sense of identity, you need things people can rally around. Germantown had no core before, no special, unique place.” Washington Post, December 5, 2002
We will bring in the new era with one of your favorites… Hot Sardines!
“Simply phenomenal” THE TIMES (LONDON), Review
“…one of the best jazz bands in NY today.” FORBES, Ultimate NYC…
“They had won over the audience right from the start. LONDON JAZZ NEWS, Review: EFG London Jazz Festival
“…absolutely gorgeous instrumental” THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD, Review
In the last two years, the Hot Sardines have been featured at the Newport Jazz Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival, have sold out NYC venues from Joe’s Pub to Bowery Ballroom and more than 150 tour dates from Chicago to London, and have released two albums on Universal Music Classics to critical raves and a No. 1 slot on the iTunes Jazz chart in the U.S. and internationally.
Always a sold-out performance at BlackRock, we are honored to have the Hot Sardines celebrate with us in dapper style as we toast to this momentous milestone in Montgomery County history.
