Our dear brother and bandmate, Eddie Ritch passed away unexpectedly in November of 2013. Words can not express our sadness and loss....
For nearly two decades, the contemporary jazz group known as The Brubakers has enjoyed consistent artistic and commercial success by grafting elements of Pop, Rock, R&B, Fusion and a variety of other sounds to their unwavering jazz foundations. In the course of four recordings, the group has continued to explore the limitless dimensions and permutations of jazz while at the same time appealing to a broad mainstream audience.
Here on our website, you'll find information about the group and its members, discover pictures that document the group from its formation to the present, and see the direction we've taken on our musical journey. You can read about the individual members' musical influences and some of our experiences. Key members of earlier Brubakers configurations are represented in our alumni section, including bassist Roger Kohrs, keyboardist Mark Holland, and guitarist Alex Bost.
