Oct 11 | CapitalBop featuring Chris Turner & DJ Raydar Clis at THEARC


CapitalBop presents 
Igmar Thomas & the Cypher, featuring DJ Raydar Ellis and vocalist Chris Turner. Led by a young New York-based trumpet titan, the Cypher is one of the most exiting bands around today, with a masterful blend of hip-hop and jazz that is all its own.

SCHEDULE 7:30 doors
8:00 Donvonte McCoy & 3rd Floor
9:15 Igmar Thomas & the Cypher

With this show we're proud to bring our Traveling Loft series to Anacostia for the first time. It'll all happen in an intimate gallery space at THEARC, Ward 8's premier music venue, located just steps from the Green Line.
Opening for the Cypher will be Donvonte McCoy, an Anacostia native who's known for his own mashup of jazz, funk, go-go and hip-hop.
Igmar Thomas has played with some of the biggest names in jazz and hip-hop, and he's currently overseas on a tour with Ms. Lauryn Hill. He'll get back to the States just in time to bring his stew of big band jazz and hip-hop aesthetics to D.C. Fans of acts like The Roots might just lose it upon exposure to the intense power of the Cypher, a seven-piece group that carefully gels Golden Era hip-hop and contemporary jazz into a neo-jazz sound that's entirely of the present moment.
This engagement of Igmar Thomas & the Cypher is made possible through the DC Special Presenters Initiative program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
