Washington, DC: National recording artist, Saxophonist, Dee Lucas, takes center stage at the Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street, NY, NY, Wed, January 2-Friday, January 4, 2013.

Dee has had the pleasure of opening for Roy Ayers, Michael Franks, The Gap Band, Lalah Hathaway, Hugh Masakela and 5-time Grammy nominee Nneena Freelon.
