The Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College welcomes the spectacular jazz ensemble, The Brubeck Brothers Quartet, on February 2, 2017, at 7:30pm.

Sons of jazz legend, Dave Brubeck, Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together their entire lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966—nearly a half century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, including with their father and with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet. They perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.

All About Jazz had this to say about their most recent recording, LifeTimes: “[T]he CD stands on its own because of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet’s consistently high level of mastery. It’s rare to find this combination of sizzling swing, rich melodies, tight arrangements, inventive solos, and warm, yet crisp recording. As always, Chris’s fretless expressions on trombone and bass are strong, propulsive, and full of wit while Dan’s polyrhythms are rarely less than electrifying.”

Tickets ($30/$25) are available through the WYO Theater box office. Visit WYOTheater.com or call (307) 672-9084 to purchase. Information on this concert and all other Whitney Center for the Arts events can be found at www.whitneyarts.org.
