"At the concert, I plan to mix it up with some solo piano, followed by the trio. I'll do a couple of my original tunes from past albums, some standards, and throw in a little surprise at the end." – Bobby Lyle (BobbyLyleofficial)
Bunny Brunel CAB opens the first set with keyboardist Mitch Forman, guitarist Alex Machacek, flutist/vocalist Kaylene Peoples, and drummer DeCarlos "Hulk" Davis. CAB earned a Grammy-nomination for the album CAB 2, the second Grammy-nomination for Bunny Brunel. Nine years as a member of Chick Corea's band, throughout his career, Bunny has performed with Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, Wayne Shorter, Natalie Cole, Dizzy Gillespie just to get started! He is known as a founding member of the Jazz Bass Fusion Movement. His last album (Bass Ball 2017) is historically the first of its kind to feature bass players here and in France, and is co-produced by his longtime friend Stanley Clarke. Endorsed by ESP Guitars, Brunel designs his own ESP LTD series to include fretted and fretless basses. He is also the inventor of the Bunny Brunel electric Upright Bass (BBEUB).
We will be playing some CAB songs and Chick Corea tunes. People should really come out for this show. It's going to be fun! – Bunny Brunel (BunnyBrunel.com)

Top 100 Chart/ FMQB & ACQB!, and Indie 100 chart).
"I always look forward to performing with Bunny Brunel CAB and now with Bobby Lyle at Catalina Jazz Club. From my CD My Man, Bobby wrote the well-received song "Time Traveler."
