Celebrating The Groundbreaking Music of Their Legendary Father, Dave Brubeck
The Brubeck Brothers Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of America's most accomplished musical families, Dan Brubeck (drums,) and Chris Brubeck (bass & trombone.) Guitarist Mike DeMicco, and pianist Chuck Lamb,complete this dynamic quartet.
They have performed at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals
across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Ravinia,
Las Vegas, Sedona, Spokane & Monterey Jazz Festivals. Their hour
long concert at Sierra Nevada Brewery has been broadcast on the
nationally syndicated program: "Sierra Center Stage". The
BBQ was chosen to kick off the New Year with an hour long,
coast-to-coast live broadcast on "Toast of the Nation" on National
Public Radio. Their new Koch release,Classified, has already earned this rave review fromAll About Jazz: "Once
again the BBQ attains that rarefied level where music is both relaxed
and expressive, and their joy in its creation is contagious. There's
really nothing out there that comes close to their unique brand of
These versatile musicians also collaborate with orchestras, and in
2006 ignited the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival by playing with the Utah
Symphony conducted by Keith Lockhart. With Chris Brubeck's compositions
as a vehicle, the BBQ has joined with chamber groups to collaborate with
musicians from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia
Orchestra and the Russian National Symphony Orchestra. The Brubeck
Brothers Quartet's debut Koch recording, Intuition,
impressed the national jazz media and spent several weeks in the top
ten radio charts while earning enthusiastic reviews from JazzTimes,
Downbeat, Boston Globe and many other respected publications. "Intuition was measure for measure one of the hardest swinging sets of the year." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
Although the quartet's style is rooted in "straight-ahead" jazz,
their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time
signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and
world music. The group's creativity, technique and improvisation can be
heard in their uncompromising music, which reflects their dedication to
melody, rhythm, culture and the spontaneous spirit of jazz.
