The always stylish Morris Day removed a handkerchief from his jacket pocket and dabbed his forehead. More than halfway through a show under intense lights, the singer and band leader of The Time began reacting to the heat.
“I know what you’re thinking,” Morris said from the stage of Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club on Friday night. “Morris Day is breaking out into a sweat on stage.
“But that’s not the case!” he countered. “Morris Day is like a fine bottle of champagne. When you take a bottle of champagne out of the refrigerator, what does it do? It undergoes condensation! So like that champagne, I’m condensating!”
The irrepressible master of funk Morris Day returns to the DC metro area this weekend with his band The Time to perform two shows at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club on Friday, Oct. 14!
Morris will always be remembered for his long friendship and association with Prince, which culminated in their collaboration on the movie Purple Rain. Morris Day and The Time scored two hits with their contributions to Purple Rain — Jungle Love and The Bird.

The hard-touring Mr. Day and his band are sure to delight and to dance up a storm at Bethesda Blues and Jazz on Friday. Come early or come late, but don’t miss one of the two shows Morris is serving up.
