There are several different opportunities to strut your stuff and play in the nation’s capital, with over nine performance venues throughout the whole city, not to mention all the educational sites to see along the way! Take in history, education, and musical tips left and right as you choose between several museums and memorials, some popular playing platforms including the Jefferson Memorial, National Mall, Washington Harbor, Six Flags Over America, and the MLK, Jr. Memorial. If you time your visit right you and your band can perform in the National Independence Day Parade on the 4th of July or the National Cherry Blossom Parade in the spring! (Note the upcoming opportunity to play in the Presidential Inaugural Parade in 2017 as well).
