River City Big Band plays the music of Steely Dan!

11104 104 Ave NW, Edmonton) Saturday, May 12, 2018, 7:30 – 10pm [image: River City Big Band plays the music of Steely Dan!] Many composers and bands helped shape the sound of contemporary popular music but few rose to the stature of Steely Dan and the writing team of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. Their sound was unmistakable and their impact was undeniable. Their music helped define the jazz rock idiom with rhythmic grooves rooted in rock, blues and Latin American music traditions, harmonies and improvisation borrowed from the world of jazz and coupled with sophisticated lyrics. The large jazz ensemble is the instrumental idiom ideally suited to capture the music of the "Dan" and present it in a fresh and compelling setting. Join the River City Big Band as we Reimagine Steely Dan.
