Diane Schuur Amazes on Opening Weekend
Vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur is as eclectic as she is brilliant. A longtime disciple of Dinah Washington and other legendary jazz singers of the ‘40s and ‘50s, Diane has built a stellar career by embracing not only the jazz of her parents’ generation, but also the pop music of her own youth during the late ‘50s and ‘60s. In a recording career that spans nearly three decades—and includes two Grammy Awards and three Grammy nominations—her music has explored nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape. Learn more about Diane.

Brubeck Brothers Quartet Bring Their Expertise to Bend
The Brubeck Brothers Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of America's most accomplished musical families. This dynamic quartet is comprised of Dan Brubeck on drums, Chris Brubeck on bass and trombone, Mike DeMicco on guitar and Chuck Lamb on piano. 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. Learn more about the Brubeck Brothers.
