August 29, 2010: Janine Gilbert-Carter Quintet
Janine was introduced to gospel, jazz and blues at a very early age by her parents and grandmother. This Pennsylvania native cannot remember a time when music was not a part of her very existence. She began her musical journey like so many contemporary artists as a member of the choir at her church in Aliquippa PA. She also had the opportunity to expand on her solo performances as a member of the Bach Choir of PA which performed some of Broadways most exciting musicals. Janine continued to use the gift she was given to perform at various functions and special events until she relocated to the Washington Metropolitan area in the summer of 1988. During the summer of 1996 Janine performed her debut concert in the DC area at New Genesis Baptist Church; this celestial songbird has been flying ever since.

Audiences have been delighted with her performances at "Twins Jazz" the U street Jazz series concerts held at "The Islander" in Washington D.C., The FMJS East Coast Jazz Festival and The legendary Washington DC supper Club Blues Alley as well as several White House Events.
Janine was a finalist in the 2003 FMJS competition, 2004 Mayor's Billie Holiday vocal competition and a quarter finalist in the 2005 American traditions competition in Savannah GA.

October 24, 2010: Steve Washington
Steve Washington, singer-actor and native Washingtonian, has been entertaining since 1981. He has appeared in numerous productions including West Side Story, Oklahoma, and Godspell. He played Demetrius in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Shakespeare Theater at the Folger. In the late 80s, he became a member of Actor's Equity, the exclusive Broadway actor's union, when cast in the Arena Stage production of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along. As a principal in Sir Cameron Mackintosh's Hey Mr. Producer, Steve appeared as the Engineer of Miss Saigon, Valjean of Les Miserables, and the Phantom of Phantom of the Opera. Tackling those roles under the guidance of Mackintosh himself remains a career highlight. Steve has also starred in numerous hit production shows and reviews on land and sea.
In the 90s, Steve fronted several of DC's top bands and orchestras. As such, Steve has shared billing with the Marvelettes, the Drifters, the Supremes, the Village People, Peter Noon, Gary Pucket, Orleans, comedian Steven Wright, and others.
Steve also has his own group — the Steve Washington Project — and performs in the Washington, DC area's top night spots. He has performed before Senator Dole, entertained at the 1998 NCSC Legislative Conference Banquet where President Clinton gave the keynote address, and more recently entertained at the NDRN Annual Gala with Senator Dodd as guest speaker. Steve has had successful runs at Mr. Henry's, the famed Marquee Lounge, and Fleetwood's (Mic Fleetwood's rock & blues club), both of which sadly are now history. Steve also performs frequently at DC's world-famous Blues Alley Supper Club and the Mandarin Oriental.
Steve is a featured vocalist on other artist's CDs and a requested demo vocalist for songwriters from DC to New York City. In 2002, Steve released his first CD entitled "Secretly," a compilation of originals and covers. He is currently working on his second.
Since 2000, Steve has been cultivating an international audience headlining aboard the world's most exclusive cruise ships and touring the Riviera with the Italian version of the Steve Washington Project.
For his appearance at Jazz in the Mills, Steve will tip his hat to Broadway and include special nods to some of his musical heroes including Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr.
