Free Music in The District

Why stay cooped up in the house when you can get out and enjoy the beauty of a summer afternoon? Local band The Johnny Hodges 2-Man Quartet said, “We’d rather have our practice sessions outside, because it’s such a nice day.”

The band is made up of Johnny Hodges and his partner Don Reithel. The two men play in downtown Columbia in between gigs at local bars. They are also members of different bands but The Johnny Hodges 2-Man Quartet has remained a constant. While they serenade the public they encourage tips and what better incentive than “Good Karma Guaranteed?”

Good tips equal good karma!
