Deanna Bogart

Deanna Bogart

When it comes to Deanna Bogart, everyone wants to claim her as their own -- her hometown, her fans, her fellow musicians and even her instruments. She's that good–and that good-natured.
Born in Detroit, Deanna spent her early years in Phoenix and New York City, climbing on any available piano bench to plunk and play with preternatural panache. Around the age of six, she was "gently removed" from the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music for playing piano by ear instead of learning to read music. While in middle school, Deanna yearned to play the saxophone. Typical of those times though, she was told, "Girls play the clarinet, not the sax." Thankfully for us all, that tide has changed.
Today, Deanna Bogart is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and multifaceted musician whose fans value the diversity of her genre-free zone. As a bandleader/singer/songwriter/producer/pianist/sax player, Deanna combines the best of boogie-woogie, contemporary blues, country and jazz into a splendid blend she calls “blusion.”
Deanna's fusion of blusion -- spontaneous, sophisticated, fearless and fun -- has garnered her three consecutive Blues Music Awards' Horn Instrumentalist of the Year for 2008, 2009 and 2010 and an endorsement contract with Rico Reeds. She has won, at last count, more than 20 Wammies, the music awards for the hotly contested Washington, D.C. region.
Recognized for her dazzling keyboards, soulful saxophone, smoky vocals and cut-above songwriting, Deanna easily wins the hearts of fans on land and at sea on chartered cruises. She is a featured player in the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Revue, jamming with Tommy Castro, Magic Dick (founding member of the J. Geils Band), as well as prominent guitar slingers. Deanna remembers well her early years as a budding musician and is an avid educator and mentor, sharing her insight and wisdom with students of all ages.
Perennially popular with a knack for engaging her audience, Deanna has played for U.S. troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Egypt as part of the “Blues on the Nile” tour, including performances at Cairo University, the Cairo Opera House and even a historic concert at the Great Pyramids.
Deanna Bogart's latest ventures include Blind Pig Record's "Pianoland," a newly minted DVD called "Everybody Has A Story," and“11th Hour,” a CD released on Vista Records, a company she co-founded.

Eric Scott Trio feat. special guest Benjie Porecki

Washington, DC soul/pop artist and bassist Eric Scott has toured internationally as a solo artist and sideman, sharing the stage with B.B. King, Mavis Staples, Aaron Neville, and many more. Recent collaborations include a stint as a vocalist for the Wounded Warriors MusiCorps Band with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters. He is a 15-time Wammie winner (Washington Area Music Association), and his music has been featured on ABC-TV, Showtime, Cinemax, The WB, as well as several indie and major motion pictures. His voice has been featured in regional and international ad campaigns for HGTV, NAT GEO, Ford, Chevy, Jeep, Chrysler, DC Lottery, and many more.

He will release his fifth CD THE CHARM CITY SESSIONS at The Soundry on his own Itzall Goode Music label. Calling his new music “Modern Soul,” Scott’s music continues to evolve, yet remains funky, upbeat, soulful, and socially aware. He is unafraid of a pop hook, and his gospel and soul drenched voice remains front and center. As a live performer, he brings it every night. His airtight trio features the stellar musicianship of guitarist Dan Leonard and drummer Deren Blessman, providing a sound that one would swear exceeds three players, balancing delicately between crafted songs and explorations on their instruments.

Says Scott, "when we play it's definitely all about having some serious fun. To me, music is meant to be enjoyed and uplifting, and I encourage the crowd to be apart of it with us. At the end of the day, I want to get booty’s movin’...AND get people thinking about the world we live in."


Over his 25 year career, keyboardist Benjie Porecki has worked and played with Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Pieces Of A Dream, Buddy Guy, Maysa, Ledisi, and many more. Currently he tours with jam band icon Keller Williams, and as a solo artist he has five releases that have received international critical acclaim.
