Four accomplished jazz musicians “Take Five” perform in Lakewood at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22 as two members of one of America’s most talented musical families, Chris and Dan Brubeck, present a tribute to their late father, jazz legend Dave Brubeck.

With guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb completing the dynamic quartet, the group has performed at concert series, colleges and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Ravinia, Las Vegas, Sedona, Spokane and Monterey jazz festivals.

Composer, orchestral arranger, lyricist and performer, Chris Brubeck is equally at home playing jazz, rock, classical, funk and folk music, displaying his multiple talents on three instruments. An award-winning composer, Chris has been called “…a 21st Century Leonard Bernstein” by John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune.

Drummer Dan Brubeck is the rhythmic force of the Brubeck quartet known as the BBQ and has toured the international music circuit for more than two decades. As a featured soloist with many of the world’s top jazz artists, Dan possesses an original drumming style and uses odd-time signatures, which have earned him international acclaim.

Guitarist and composer Mike DeMicco is co-producer for both of the BBQ’s Koch releases. Both “Intuition” (2006) and “Classified” (2008) featured his compositions. Each of these recordings remained in the Top 20 of the JazzWeek radio charts for more than two months.

Chuck Lamb, pianist, composer and percussionist, has played with musical greats including the Woody Herman Orchestra, Bela Fleck, Dave Holland, Eddie Jefferson, Ginger Baker, Tom Harrell and Ernestine Anderson.
