Blues Alley Jazz was established in 1965 and has consistently been ranked and labeled the number one jazz club in the world by its industry peers. It is America’s oldest, continuously operating jazz supper club and has been home to such luminaries as Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and Wynton Marsalis. The historic club is best in class, and its leadership seeks partners who can meet their high level of expectations.
In addition to being a jazz club, Blues Alley is an important and contributing member of the Georgetown and DC communities, sponsoring such programs as the Blues Alley Jazz Society, a youth orchestra and a youth summer camp.
In 1980, Executive Director of Blues Alley, Harry Schnipper was introduced to the Didden family when he bought his first home on Capitol Hill and he has been banking with National Capital Bank ever since.
