The Brubeck Brothers Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of America’s most accomplished musical families: Brothers Dan Brubeck (drums) and Chris Brubeck (bass & trombone) – sons of the extraordinary pianist Dave Brubeck. 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. 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 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. Dan Brubeck was featured on nearly a dozen albums with his father, and toured widely with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. He’s toured internationally and recorded three widely played albums with his electric jazz group, „The Dolphins”, and co-led the Brubeck LaVerne Trio with his brother Chris and pianist Andy LaVerne. Chris Brubeck is equally at home playing jazz, rock, classical, funk and folk music, displaying his multiple talents on three instruments, Chris also is an award-winning composer. In addition to his instrumental work with the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, Chris tours, records and sings with his acoustic funk-blues group “Triple Play”.
