Joe Vetter @ Twins Jazz Club

Jan 8, 8:00 PM

Twins Jazz Club, 1344 U Street NW Top Floor, Washington D.C. 20009

Joe Vetter is a jazz pianist based in Bethesda, MD. A native of New York City, Joe grew up in a musical family. As musicians and educators, both his parents dedicated themselves to bringing music to the city’s public schools. Joe began studying classical piano at age nine and continued formal training through his college years. His musical interests ranged well beyond the classical repertoire, and for over a decade, he was active in New York’s vibrant jazz, blues, and R&B scene. He got an early start: When he played his first professional gig at age 15, his older bandmates worried that he wouldn’t be allowed in the club. After moving to the Washington, DC area, Joe shifted his musical focus exclusively to jazz, studying with DC jazz piano master Wade Beach and performing regularly with some of DC’s top jazz artists at venues such as Twins Jazz, the Henley Park Hotel, the Black Fox Lounge, and 701 Restaurant.

Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__]( exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
