Kenny Washington with the John Toomey Trio at Bank St Stage

After a year and a half of being shut down due to Covid, the Virginia Arts Festival opened its new season with Kenny Washington - Vocals and the John Toomey Trio. This performance was San Franciscan vocalist Washington's first gig on the road since lockdown. The audience, hungry for live entertainment, bought the 250 tickets the venue was allowed to sell (at the time of the performance social distancing was still in effect). in less than a day. The singer had appeared here three times before and has become a local favorite. Performing many tunes from his album What's The Hurry (Lower 9th, 2020), Washington, along with Toomey, Jimmy Masters and Brian Caputo proved why he (and the trio) is such a crowd pleaser and insured an open invitation to come back whenever he can.
