Double Sharp welcomes special guest- Mary- eL
“Coming with a siren’s voice and wielding a soulful guitar, Mary-eL brings a blend of original music steeped in the sounds of rock, r&b, soul and funk. It is sure to be a night full of searing rhythms and cutting leads as the sexy, sultry Polynesian phoenix lights up the stage!” – M.Joyce
Mary-eL is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Virginia by way of Indianapolis who’s injecting edgy rock and soul into the DMV music scene. This Jill-of-all-trades has hosted her own radio show, acted in short films, co-hosted local TV programs, is a highly sought-after studio session vocalist, and is well known for her energetic stage presence.
2015 proved to be a big year for Mary-eL. In August she performed with John Kadlecik, Ron Holloway, and Beau Sasser at the 2015 Peach Festival. That same month she provided background vocals for Melvin Seals & the Jerry Garcia Band at the 2015 Lockn Fest. In October she sang with Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), G.E. Smith (Saturday Night Live, Hall & Oates), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), and Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) at D.A.R Constitution Hall for a benefit concert to aid the wounded veterans of MusiCorps. Then in November she embarked on a 6-week, 28 city tour with The John Kadlecik Band as both a vocalist and guitarist. Then in July of this year she had the privilege of opening for the legendary Allman Brothers Band drummer, Butch Trucks & the Freight Train Band!
“A mesmerizing performer!” – M. Smith
As an original artist she has performed in many of the popular venues around the DMV including: Rams Head Live & Rams Head Onstage, the 8×10, Baltimore Soundstage, Hard Rock Cafe DC, AMP by Strathmore, and even the French Embassy! A few of her songs have been played on various indie radio stations and programs including Ocean 98.1 FM, KNHR: No Hits Radio (Texas/Canada), The Kitty Opal Show (UK), and the No Filter Sports Radio show.
“The next one for sure!” – Chuck Treece
When she’s not out performing her original music or providing vocals in the studio, you can see her from time to time performing with her fellow musical cohorts providing backup and support for their shows. No matter the venue or genre one thing’s for certain: her passion for music comes through in her performance and it is both consuming and contagious!

Pork – Great selection from chops, ribs, sausages to roasts, hams and bacon. We have just about any cut you’d want.
