Ridgefield Playhouse: Brubeck Brothers Quartet Celebrates Dave Brubeck's Centennial
Join us in the lobby at 3pm for a complimentary wine tasting by Freixenet and a display of historic items from Dave Brubeck & The Brubeck Brothers courtesy of the Wilton Library!
2020 marked the Centennial Year of jazz giant Dave Brubeck. And although, due to the pandemic, we had to wait a couple of years to present this show – nothing was going to stop his sons Chris and Dan Brubeck, from celebrating their father’s life and legacy. The Brubeck Brothers performed and recorded with their father since the 1970s, have curated a multimedia show with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb complete this dynamic quartet. Through stories told by his sons and music performed by the Quartet, the show invites audiences to travel along the timeline of Dave’s extraordinary life and career. Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their 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, performing at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.
