The DBQ Returns to Bennetts Lane

The last time The Daimon Brunton Quintet it was 2012 and the final gig of a 12 gig Australian National Tour. And now .. they’re back!

On Wednesday the 12th and 19th of October ‘The Daimon Brunton Quintet’ plays the iconic Bennetts Lane Jazz Club. After 19 years; a national tour and 4 album releases Daimon has put together a brand new, all-star band. Playing new, complex, sophisticated and funky tunes you won’t want to miss this amazing ensemble. Grab your tickets from the Bennetts Lane website or at the door this Wednesdays 12th & 19th October, 2016.

In 1996 I started my first jazz quintet which morphed into ‘The Daimon Brunton Quintet’ by the time of the band’s debut album, ‘Never Again Such Beauty’ (2002). By 2005 The Daimon Brunton Quintet took a look at the funkier side of jazz with ‘Unlimited-Slip Diff’ (2005). This was the band’s first album on the Newmarket Music label. By ‘My Favourite Things’ (2008) the band looked at blending French inspired café tunes with modern jazz. Adding a piano accordion to the standard setup and a number of original jazz waltzes. Having never recorded a live album The Daimon Brunton Quintet recorded more hours than ever before to come up with the electric ‘Wah Sa’ (2012).

Over the last 3 years Daimon has put Daimon Brunton Quintet on the backburner to startup the 8-piece pop/funk band ‘Soul Cupcake’.

Now Daimon is assembling a BRAND NEW quintet with new tunes and reworkings of his favourite picks from the past 4 albums.

Daimon Brunton – trumpet
Adam Rudegeair – piano
David Gooey – guitar
Adam Donaldson – drums
Craig Strain – bass

The band was a highlight of the Castlemaine Jazz Festival and I promise you that this gig is truly not to be missed.

Get on down to Bennetts Lane Jazz Club on Wednesdays 12th & 19th October, 2016 at 8pm.

Castlemaine Jazz Festival

Hi guys, so excited to announce that The Daimon Brunton Quintet is alive and kicking again. As regular www.daimonbrunton.com visitors know between 1997 and 2012 The Daimon Brunton Quintet released 4 albums (3 under Newmarket Music) and completed a 12-gig national tour that covered 4 states plus the A.C.T.

Then in 2012 Daimon Brunton launched his 8-piece soul/funk/pop band Soul Cupcake and The DBQ took a backseat. Now the DBQ has a brand new lin-up (we’ll announce it soon) and brand new tunes and a two-gig feature at The Castlemaine Jazz Festival.

 

Stay tuned .. exciting times ahead!
