Local Washington, DC Music Scene
Washington DC has been the home of the most famous military music on Earth, with marching band music having a huge effect on the early recording industry. One of the oldest record companies, Columbia, was named after the District of Columbia, where the label was originally based. John Phillip Souza was an early popular recording pioneer from the nation's capital as his 'Stars and Stripes Forever" and other songs have become marching band standards. Al Jolson also came from the area as did Duke Ellington, who became a leading figure of the big band era. Since that time the region has produced many notable artists including Marvin Gaye, Roberta Flack, Patsy Cline, Billy Stewart, Peter Tork, Tim Buckley, Link Wray, Scott McKenzie, Roy Clark, The Orioles, Fugazi, Stacy Lattisaw, Blackbyrds, Clovers, Ginuwine, Amii Stewart, Tori Amos, Van McCoy, Dave Grohl, Joan Jett, Starland Vocal Band, Bad Brains, Deep Dish, Hot Tuna, Johnny Gill, Mya, BT and Minor Threat. Washington DC is also known as "the bluegrass capital."
