Albino Rhino

Originally formed as a garage rock & blues duo, Albino Rhino has been evolving since their inception. After cutting their teeth and sharpening their horns in DC and Northern Virginia, Rhino has become known for their raw power, energy, and unforgettable funk. The band plays funk-infused rock and blues, with elements of jazz and a tendency for extended improvisational jams that take their live audiences on an ever-evolving emotional rollercoaster. Like Albino Rhino's individual members and their multifaceted city of Washington, DC, their music includes both unique properties and mass appeal. Drawing from their diverse experiences, they have written songs about beach life, social justice, funk, and of course, rhinos, so you're sure to find something for YOU within this band's eclectic portfolio

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
