December 6, 2020 is Dave’s 100th Birthday, and many plans are in the works to celebrate his Centennial in his birthday year 2020, in 2021 – his 100th year, and beyond. It is our hope that anyone planning a Centennial event will let us know so we can include it on Dave’s Centennial Calendar (on this website). The Brubeck Family is very unique in that the sons’ careers are intertwined and overlapping with Dave’s career through extensive touring and recording with Dave. They continue to celebrate Dave’s music and are an extension of Dave’s legacy. Please see below for more information on the different groups that are available to help you celebrate Dave’s Centennial:
The Brubeck Brothers Quartet featuring Dan (drums), Chris (bass & trombone), Mike DeMicco (guitar) and Chuck Lamb (piano) have put together a special live and multimedia Centennial project that includes video interviews with Dave and musicians he influenced, stories told by Dan and Chris, and music performed by the Quartet.
