DUSTY BROUGH, MILES JAY, EVA SCOW & JULIEN CANTELM Cover

COMPLIMENTARY ENTRY | NO RESERVATION REQUIRED | SEATING ON A FIRST-ARRIVAL BASIS | NO DINNER SERVICE ~ AN ECLECTIC FUSION ENSEMBLE ~ Guitarist Dusty Brough brilliantly combines his roots in Flamenco with Jazz, Folk, Brazilian, Gypsy and Balkan music. As a composer, he integrates these eclectic influences with his unique approach to music and a “blatant disregard for genre boxes” (Joe Bendel, Epoch Times). Brough’s nylon-string guitar playing is marked by an unparalleled agile technique that supports a buoyant aesthetic. Dusty creates something truly remarkable by seamlessly blending lush harmonies, intricate rhythms and improvisation, with a fluidity, presence, and rhythm that can only be compared to the rolling waves of the ocean. Eva Scow is a world class mandolinist and violinist from California. Eva began studying music at a young age, starting on the piano and violin at age 4, and later adding the mandolin at age 8. She has recorded on numerous projects, ranging in styles from R&B, Country, Pop, and Jazz. She continues to play in numerous groups across California as a sideperson, exploring traditional styles and contemporary jazz idioms. Bassist & musician Miles Jays' compositions and playing are featured across all of season 6 of the hit BBC/Netflix series Peaky Blinders, as well as the Academy Award nominated Caphernaum, and he is the bassist of the acclaimed Gypsy punk jazz group Axon Orkestra. Originally from Los Angeles CA, Miles spent a decade based in Egypt, Lebanon, Greece, and Syria, playing with some of the most beloved artists of the regions, including Youssou N’dour, Mashrou’ Leyla, Ziad Rahbani, Nasseer Shama, Dina el Wedidi, Ross Daly and Zeid Hamdan. This experience lead Miles to become the Music Director of the critically acclaimed Nile Project, a 17 member collective of musicians from the Nile River Basin which toured and recorded extensively across the world. Through all these travels Miles devoted himself to learning numerous regional instruments, all of which combine to form his unique palate of sounds for his original film scores and compositions. And at the helm of his sound is his JayBass; a one of a kind bass instrument he personally designed and built by hand to solve his need for a more travel friendly full scale upright bass. Miles currently resides in Altadena, CA. Based in San Diego, drummer Julien Cantelm stands out for his dynamic, imaginative, and distinctive drumming skills. Immersed in a unique musical and creative environment from a young age, Julien embarked on his musical journey through exploration and the indirect influences of his percussionist father, Cuban mother, and bassist uncle, a member of the Pittsburgh Symphony. Introduced to the violin at the age of 4, he transitioned to acoustic guitar and drums around the age of 11. Julien's artistic journey has led him through many diverse realms of music and art, contributing his talents to local, national and international projects.
