Bruns Collective with Kevin Baché

An 8-piece crossover jazz ensemble featuring L.A.s top jazz musicians handpicked by drummer, bandleader, and producer Bruns. They showcase a virtuosic 3-piece horn section, a highly versatile rhythm section, and powerful lead vocals by singer/songwriter Kevin Baché [bah-shay].


Their music, while rooted in the jazz tradition, is influenced by a variety of genres and features unique arrangements by Bruns based on his folkloric drumming field-research from around the world.


They perform at L.A.’s top jazz venues including Catalina, Vibrato, and Vitello’s and various city of L.A. events including “Jazz at

LACMA”​ and “Meet Me at Reed”. They toured Japan in April of 2017 and again by popular demand in July of 2019.


Their most recent albums “Live at Catalina”​ and “Cherry Avenue” (produced by Bruns for the Panout Music Group™ label) were Top-10 charting, and aired on 300+ radio stations nationwide. “Cherry Avenue” enjoyed radio play on L.A.’s K-JAZZ 88.1FM for over a year. The group has garnered numerous positive press and media reviews.
