On Thursday 21st July a truly ground breaking gig is happening at The Paris Cat Jazz Club!!
The Daimon Brunton Quintet (DBQ) is undoubtedly the most exciting live band experience happening now and for the very first time ever an electric, jazz/funk band is fusing with a classical chamber group.
This will be a jaw dropping event!!
Influenced by Clifford Brown in the mid 1950s; Freddie Hubbard in the early 1970s, Miles Davis in the late 1970s Miles Davis DBQ plays with an indomitable intensity and energy and now this unique sound is fusing with the lush and opulent sounds of a chamber quartet.
This gig will have everything! Raw energy, sophisticated arrangements, grand soundscapes, iconic melodies and 9 musicians playing beyond themselves.
DBQ has just released their sixth full-length album are about to record their seventh full length album and are at the peak of their powers.
The Daimon Brunton Quintet is always a visceral, engaging, intoxicating and exciting experience but adding a chamber quartet will dial this up even further.
Unfortunately I have caught the bug – yes that bug. So tomorrow night’s gig is having to be postponed until Thursday 11th August. For all ticket holders hold onto your tickets as they will be 100% valid for Thursday 11th August. HUGE shout out to Open Studio who have been ridiculously supportive – IN FACT – Adam Rudegeair (keys) and Owen Downie (bass) are going to put together an extravaganza this Thursday in place of our gig and ENTRY IS FREE! If I didn’t have to isolate I would LOVE to be there for this. It will be wild! Get on down and support this gracious, beautiful venue and these amazing musicians!
On Thursday 19th May The Daimon Brunton Quintet will light up Open Studio. This will sell out and there are only limited tickets available. The ticket link is below and below that is a little sample from our last gig to whet your appetite! Tickets available at…

t was a full house last night and the energy in the room was unbelievable all night! DBQ tunes are pretty intense affairs and yet something about last night felt so easy. The crowd was with us every step of the way and the band felt like we were riding a wave. To everyone who came on down last night and to the Paris Cat for supporting us we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Huge thanks also to these legends!! Adam Rudegeair; Adam Donaldson; Zac White & Blakely McLean Davies.
We’re not quite ready to release the information just yet but if you can trust us .. there are hugely exciting times ahead!! If these plans come to fruition we might be in the midst of the most exciting and creative time in DBQ’s 27 year history!
We’re welcoming Blakely McLean Davies to the band on bass and he will join the inimitable lineup of Zac White on guitar; Adam Donaldson on drums; Adam Rudegeair on keys and Daimon Brunton on trumpet.
Sometimes you just get a vibe or a feeling or a hunch and the buzz in the air amongst this band leads me to believe that our gig at The Paris Cat Jazz Club coming up on Thursday 21st April is going to be an absolute stonker of a gig!
Details and ticket link are below. If you like exciting, beautiful, hip music of any genre then you MUST get down to the Paris Cat to check this one out!
