Bruce Gates-trumpet, Paul Brewer-alto sax, Adam Roberts-tenor sax, Steve Culp-keyboards, Jeff Lauffer-guitar, Mike King-bass, John Lewis-drums, Joe Garcia-percussion. The Brecker Brothers Project was formed to present the incredible music of the seminal 70’s fusion band formed by Randy and Michael Brecker. Like it’s namesake, the Project is a veritable “Super-band” of Valley virtuosos. Expect to hear Brecker classics like; Some Skunk Funk, African Skies, Sponge, Grease Piece, King Of The Lobby, Funky Sea Funky Dew and many others. This promises to be a night to remember! “The kind of pivotal role played by Bird in bebop, or Miles in modal improvisation, is similar to that played by the Breckers vis a vis jazz-funk” – Chuck Berg, Jazz Times
