Fort Lauderdale, FL - If you love Dave Brubeck, come hear his talented offspring, the Brubeck Brothers Quartet in concert on February 11 in Brubeck x 2. This exciting jazz group has been playing together all their lives and if there is such a thing as “born musicians,” then the accomplished brothers definitely qualify.

The show begins at 7:45 pm. Single tickets are $35 and $40 and are on sale through the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office at 954-462-0222 or online at www.goldcoastjazz.org or www.browardcenter.org. A pre-concert Jazz Riff jazz talk will be given by radio personality Stu Grant at 7:00pm in the theater before the show.

Dan Brubeck on drums and Chris Brubeck on trombone and bass have brought audiences to their feet all over the world. A composer, orchestral arranger, lyricist and performer, Chris Brubeck is equally at home playing jazz, rock, classical, fund and folk music.
