Mark Christopher Brandt
The East Coast Duo
Mark Christopher Brandt: acoustic piano
Shaun Jurek: acoustic bass
With the exception of a brief hiatus between 2000 and 2008, Mark has been active as a working professional musician since 1977. In 2008 Mark put together a jazz trio which eventually become the East Coast Duo with bassist Shaun Jurek. Until the Pandemic of 2020, the East Coast Duo was performing several times a week all year long.
For twelve years the East Coast Duo mastered and delivered the art form of small venue performances from the border of North Carolina to the border of Delaware. As in the days of the great jazz musicians and the great classical musicians before that, Mark and Shaun delivered standards and originals to house parties, private functions, clubs, restaurants, hotels, convention centers and senior centers. In April of 2020 the East Coast Duo amiably disbanded.
