I am playing a show this coming Thursday Aug. 4th at the Phillips Collection, Washington’s world-famous art museum next door in Dupont Circle.
On the first Thursday of every month, the museum opens its doors for performance, tours of new exhibits, drinks and food, attracting hundreds of neighbors and art enthusiasts. This month’s theme is “By the Sea,” featuring the paintings of William Merritt Chase. Be sure to buy your ticket in advance through the links below, as Phillips After 5 routinely sells out.
My friends and I will play music in the Tryst Cafe courtyard at the Phillips from 5 until 8:30pm. More information below. Thank you and until then, – Peter
By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea!
You and me, you and me, oh how happy we’ll be!

Grab dinner at participating food trucks, taste the warm notes of summer with rum samplings from Cotton & Reed Distillery, and sway to the calypso sound of the Casio Steel Band. DC-based songwriter Peter Maybarduk and indie rock quintet Notaries Public perform original music and pianist Simon Kirabo Muyanja of Uganda performs seaside-themed jazz and popular standards within the courtyard.

Our indie rock quintet Notaries Public will play Velvet Lounge, in Washington DC’s U Street corridor, on Saturday, April 11. In the words of Notaries guitarist Ben O’Donnell, you will want to be there when we break the wax seal and execute this rockument.
We’ll be supported by local singer-songwriters Eugene Fertelmeyster and Laurel Rose.
