Based in Miami, the seven colorful and culturally diverse musicians of Los Wizzards came together through a series of open mic nights in 2016. Los Wizzards’ magic lies in the way they invite audiences into the conversation with elements of funk, rock, pop, jazz, reggae, hip-hop and salsa. Through festive, honest lyrics and a sophisticated approach to popular genres, their anthems cast a spell that compels listeners to dance. Their power is rooted in their devotion to artistic discipline, constant experimentation and a firm refusal to restrict their sound to one genre. In 2020, that identity led them to win the honor of representing Miami on the city’s biggest stage as the Miami Heat’s official house band.

“A beautiful, endlessly echoing portrait of a murder and its afterlife. Ms. Nottage shaped this story with such theatrical inventiveness and discipline that it never feels sensational.” – The New York Times

Mlima is a magnificent African elephant trapped by the underground international ivory market. As he follows a trail littered by a history of greed, Mlima takes us on a journey through memory, fear, tradition and the penumbra between want and need. From Lynn Nottage, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Sweat and Ruined, Mlima’s Tale is a captivating and haunting fable come to life.

“Once again the Brubeck Brothers Quartet attains that rarefied level where music is both relaxed and expressive, and their joy in its creation is contagious. There’s really nothing out there that comes close to their unique brand of inventiveness.” – All About Jazz

 To celebrate the life and legacy of pianist/composer Dave Brubeck, his sons, Dan and Chris Brubeck who, together with guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, form the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, are joined by the award-winning Frost Concert Jazz Band from the Frost School of Music and special guest vocalist Catherine Russell in a multimedia tribute to the jazz pioneer. 

Dan and Chris Brubeck, who performed and recorded with their father beginning in the 1970s, first curated the multimedia show in 2020 to mark Dave Brubeck’s centennial year. 

A Celebration of Brubeck invites audiences to travel along the timeline of Dave’s extraordinary life and career, which spanned more than six decades and redefined jazz. Brubeck’s 1959 album, Time Out, spawned not only the first million-selling jazz record in modern jazz history with the singles “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo a la Turk,” but also a slew of albums by other artists also experimenting in nontraditional time signatures. 

Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966. They have subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of groups, performing at concert series, colleges and jazz festivals across North America and Europe, including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl and Monterey jazz festivals.
