Gigi MacLaughlin and John Lee

Round About - an original Washington, DC-area pop/rock acoustic duo made up of Patrick Garrity and Aaron Lowenberger. Started in 2010 and spending over a decade as a four-piece rock band, they became a duo permanently following the recording of their fourth studio album, 2022’s Inner Voices & Curious Choices.


Melissa Quinn Fox - A singer/songwriter from Pittsburgh, PA, with deep roots in both Country and Americana music.  She is known best for her story-driven songs and powerful vocals.  Capturing the attention of her audience through her charismatic live performances, Melissa continues to inspire listeners to find gratitude in every moment.

Tobago Bay Calypso Trio - Northern Virginia’s Hot Calypso band featuring music from the Caribbean and the sound of steel drums. A stylistically unique group from day one, with music ranging from Soca and Calypso to Latin, Pop and Jazz.

David Manley and Mauro Miranda -  Guitarist David Manley and Brazilian Vocalist Mauro Mir share their love for Brazilian jazz with their personalized interpretation of this South American indigenous music. 

Delta Spur - Delta Spur is DC/MD/VA's hottest country band, performing Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Zac Brown, Keith Urban, as well as other country favorites.  A Delta Spur show is an energetic performance of fresh, modern country music; mixing the fun and excitement of a party band with country songs you want to hear.

The Walkaways - The Walkaways are a metropolitan DC-based band, making original music since 2006 with a sound has
been called "alt-country" (Washington Post, Washington City Paper, Washingtonian Magazine). Their songs draw even more broadly, however, from Americana, folk, roots rock, country, indie, and classic rock. Key influences include Ryan Adams,
Son Volt, Wilco, Springsteen, Uncle Tupelo, Josh Ritter, The Band, and Old 97s. 

Jay Byrd - Jason (Jay) Byrd has been a professional guitarist, singer, and songwriter since his late teens. In his early twenties, he co-founded the blues-rock trio The Groov with Kerry Brooks, and in 1996 joined the then-Grateful Dead cover band Wavy Train. Byrd's original songs and guitar work helped Wavy Train to forge a sound that combined pop-oriented melodies with extended improvisation. After moving to the Washington, DC area in 2001, Jason began crafting songs with a decidedly Americana bent. An award-winning songwriter (NewSong, Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, Bernard-Ebb Finalist), Jason continues to write and perform original roots-influenced music. Jay’s new album, At Home Again (2022) is now available on CD and on all streaming platforms.

Gigi MacLaughlin and John Lee - Gigi MacLaughlin and John Lee bring their love of Brazilian, and Pan-Latin Music to Lena's Loft.  MacLaughlin is from the Northeastern part of Brazil and has teamed up with DC based guitarist John Lee to create amazing music.  You will enjoy their music, built on the diverse repertoire of Brazilian and Pan-Latin melodies and rhythms.  

Summer and Eric Duo - finalist for the “Best of Loudon,” Summer and Eric Duo bring their contemporary music style steeped in country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and the blues to Lena’s Beer Garden.

Heather Lloyd - Heather Aubrey Lloyd has co-fronted Baltimore’s ilyAIMY (Lena’s regulars!) for two decades. "Janis Joplin ... and Joni Mitchell blended together," says The Montgomery Caller of Lloyd’s passionate, “sing-me-the-phone-book” alto. The awards haven't stopped since she took Album of the Year from the Songwriter’s Association of Washington in 2018. She is a Grand Prize winner of the prestigious Bernard Ebb Songwriting Award, and this year opened for Gordon Lightfoot. Expect a blend of classic covers from every genre alongside award-winning original music.

Combo Indigo - Combo Indigo features Vocalist/Guitarist Joe Chiocca and Bassist/Vocalist John Coppola.  This old school Classic Rock, Pop, folk, Blues and Bluegrass duo pride themselves as not being singer songwriters, but playing good old music!

Bobby Thompson - Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist, Bobby Thompson is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing seven albums since 2011.
