This Friday & Saturday at
Hermann’s Jazz Club

What happens when you get some of Victoria’s finest jazz players, mix them with a few funky rock players and hand them the Steely Dan catalogue? The Pretzel Logic Orchestra is an homage to Steely Dan and a labour of love for its nine members.

These guys have the chops it takes to interpret the complex and quirky material of the iconic 70’s songwriting partnership of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker.

Fusing jazz sensibility with the rhythms of Rock, Pop and R&B, Steely Dan created a sophisticated sound that remains unique in music history and produced some of the most memorable and timeless songs of the decade.

Do It Again…Peg…Deacon Blues…Rikki Don’t Lose that Number…Dirty Work…  The Pretzel Logic Orchestra’s big, cool, guitar- and horn-driven sound evokes the hip, urban culture that underlies these unforgettable songs.

To make a reservation call 250-589-0545 or email pretzellogic@shaw.ca.
