THIS SATURDAY! Special Event – Free Entry!

Imagine sitting in a funky Fitzroy café/restaurant/bar on a lazy, late Saturday afternoon having some drinks a nibble before a party or dinner.

Now add to that scene a live band playing jazz standards but in a latin/South American flavour!

Sounds like the sweet life!!

On Saturday 7th August DBQ, normally a quintet, will be become a quartet. For one night only this amazing band will be performing jazz standards with latin grooves. This will be too cool to handle.

Join us at ‘Wolfhound’ for this hip adventure! – Free Entry!

2 exciting evenings!!

The Daimon Brunton Quintet (DBQ) has almost completed recording its brand new, full-length album, ‘The Chunky Biscuit’.

It is groovy, funky and very hip. It has latin elements and dance elements but still wrapped in a modern jazz/fusion packaging.

The album also features the original ballad the band has recorded since its debut album ‘Never Again Such Beauty’ (2002).

DBQ is celebrating the recording of this album with a very special feature gig at Open Studio on Thursday 11th February. This will be an intimate performance and seating is extremely limited so please book your tickets as soon as practical via:

Following this the band will launch ‘The Chunky Biscuit’ at the beautiful Paris Cat Jazz Club. Given the year that 2020 was we’re expecting this to be a huge party! Let’s send this brand new album into the new world in style! (Ticket link to follow shortly).
