Marcus Johnson – Sips and Sounds Flo Wine & Jazz Reception at The Elroy

FloLogoThis past Tuesday (9/10) found me traveling into D.C. to the historic H Street corridor for a Flo Wines and Jazz Reception hosted at The Elroy. Flo, (“for the love of”) is a lifestyle company created by Marcus Johnson, a world renowned Jazz artist, with the mission of enhancing their customer’s lives “one sip and sound at a time”.

Marcus Johnson introduced us to his line of affordable wines that included a Moscato, a Chardonnay, and a Red Blend. All were absolutely delicious, but the Moscato definitely gets my vote for being the favorite of the evening. While we sipped on Flo wines, and dined on finger foods, we were graced with the sweet upbeat sounds of Marcus Johnson’s jazz music which was a successful pairing between the senses.

As a self-taught piano artist, Johnson certainly has a unique flair for music and performing so it’s no surprise he has found success and praise within the music community including acknowledgement as a Billboard Top 10 artist, NAACP Image Award-nominated jazz musician, and as a successful entrepreneur from Washington D.C. with his own music label, and now Flo Brands.

I hope to hear more of Johnson in the future. I adored the wines, and fell in love with Jazz all over again during his short performance at The Elroy. Not only was he fantastic to listen to and watch with a big smile on his face the entire time, he was personable and a great person to talk with.

To learn more about Marcus Johnson, his music, and Flo, find him online at Flo Brands. He’s also available on Facebook, & Twitter.

Thank you to Heather Freeman Media & Public Relations for organizing the reception!
