Press Releases

“From Grammy-nominated bassist to French chef, is there no end to Bunny Brunel’s skills? The American, French-born musician, bass designer and creator of the Bunny Brunel Electric Upright Bass (BBEUB) is also a published author of countless instructional books . . . oh wait, did we mention that he was also an instructor, too . . . well, he is also an incredible cook! He’s a gourmet chef, who attended l’Ecole Hôtelière de Nice, and learned everything there is to know about running a hotel, including preparing gourmet cuisine – everything from ratatouille to an apple tart. This video is the first of a series, where Bunny demonstrates his culinary prowess; and sets the tone for the first of many Feast & Fusion concerts, where he will cook in the kitchen and “cook” with his fusion band CAB on stage. On Saturday, October 14, 2017, 2-time Grammy-nominated bassist Bunny Brunel and his award-winning band CAB will be performing the first of many Feast & Fusion concerts, where Bunny Brunel will be presenting a gourmet entrée on the menu at the Back Bay Bistro (Newport Dunes Resort) in Newport Beach. The doors open at 6:00pm, followed by an exclusive V.I.P. cooking presentation by Bunny Brunel himself. This is followed by a special performance by CAB at 7:30pm.” Quoted from AGENDA Magazine (http://www.agendamag.com/chef-bunny-brunel-feast-fusion/)

For this special concert, Feast and Fusion, Bunny Brunel will prepare a signature dish—the “Bunny Brunel Gambas À L’Armoricaine Jumbo Shrimp Sautéed in a Tomato Cognac Sauce served over Ratatouille.” Foodies, chefs, and cooking hobbyists, as well as serious jazz lovers will come together for the first time at the Back Bay Bistro to enjoy this fine dining and fine music.
