The Blackbyrds are one of the most accomplished music bands ever from the Washington, DC area. They came together more than 40 years ago as Howard University students under the tutelage of their music professor, the late great jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, who also became their manager and producer. They created a unique jazz funk sound combined with soulful harmonies that made a big impact on the music charts in the 1970s, with 10 top 40 R&B hits and several on the pop charts.

The Blackbyrds' biggest hit songs were «Walking In Rhythm», their Grammy nominated, million selling smash hit that received widespread airplay on several radio formats, peaking at #4 on the R&B chart and #6 on the pop chart; «Happy Music», an uplifting party anthem that was their biggest R&B hit at #3 and also #19 on the pop chart; and «Rock Creek Park», their most beloved song known by generations of music fans for its infectious groove and famous verse “doin’ it in the park, doin’ it after dark, oh yeah…Rock Creek Park!”

The Blackbyrds are still touring around the world but they always look forward to performing in the DC area because they are most appreciated here. Their original core members are all from the DC area including bandleader Keith Killgo on drums, Joe Hall on bass and Orville Saunders on guitar, as well as key member Dave Robbins on keyboards. Their crowd pleasing performance features all of their most popular songs plus those by their late mentor Donald Byrd, and the dance floor will be open for everybody to dance and party all night!
