The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH) is delighted to present the Dan Brubeck Quartet as a special Dave Brubeck birthday tribute on the night of Dave's 93rd birthday at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. December 6th, 2013 would have been Dave Brubeck's 93rd birthday. This veritable legend in the history of jazz passed away in Norwalk, Connecticut on December 5th, 2012, one day before his 92nd birthday.
Dave's son, Dan, who, over the years, has played in several of his father's ensembles and is internationally celebrated as one of the world's finest jazz drummers in his own right, has put together a recording and concert touring project in the form of a superb quartet that pays tribute to Dan's illustrious father and his eternally inspiring music. An intriguing additional emphasis of this quartet is the performance of several Dave Brubeck compositions as vocal pieces with the wonderful lyrics that were written for them by Dave's wife, Iola Brubeck.
The quartet members are: Dan Brubeck-drums, Roy Styffe-alto saxophone; Tony Foster-piano and Adam Thomas-bass and vocals.
