Our latest release, Elements of Surf, includes 11 new songs from drummer Billy Rogers and vocalist Diana Rogers, featuring electrifying performances by guitarist Rick Vandivier and bassist Dan Robbins, plus some special friends and guest musicians, including Bill C Ireton on guitar and percussionist/steel pan aficionado Phil Hawkins.
We will be performing songs from Elements of Surf, along with some jazz and soul classics, at our CD release party at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00). For this show, there will be both concert seating and room for dancing as the BR Jazz Band is joined by some of our favorite guest musicians, including the Elements of Surf singers. Tickets are available now at brjazzband.brownpapertickets.com.
Also on April 12, we'll be appearing on the KPIG (FM 107.5) radio show, Please Standy By, at 11:30am for an interview and acoustic performance of a few Elements of Surf tunes.
