For our special “Encore Performance Season”, we are excited to bring the Brubeck Brothers Quartet back to Joplin. The BBQ is an extraordinary 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.
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.
