About Dirty Logic:

While fans can expect to hear accurate renditions of the studio recordings and solos they know and love, the band also incorporates some of the funkier, re-harmonized arrangements found in Steely Dan’s live performances. Their knack for authentically recreating the band’s catalog, coupled with a healthy dose of high-energy improvisation, ensures that each show is a refreshing musical experience. Their songbook currently includes tracks from Aja, Gaucho, The Royal Scam, Pretzel Logic, Can’t Buy A Thrill, Countdown to Ecstasy, Katy Lied, and the FM soundtrack.

Dirty Logic’s all-star cast of characters features members of national and regional acts such as Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Empire Strikes Brass, Grammy Award Winning Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, The Travers Brothership, The Business, Jesse Barry and the Jam, Off With Your Radiohead, The Billy Sea, The Juan Benevides Group, Chicago Afrobeat, Mucca Pazza, James Brown Dance Party, A Family Affair, Orange Crush, Larke, Fathead, The Legendary Tues Night House Band, The Mojo Brothers Blues Band, Blake Ellege and The Country Resonators, and The Stardusters Jazz Quintet among others.

...Come and see them for yourself, they do not disappoint…

About the album AJA:

Steely Dan’s iconic 1977 record AJA marked a major pivot point in the bands transition from pop/rock pop/jazz.  It was painstakingly recorded using over 40 of the finest studio musicians of the era. The record was released to critical acclaim and won Grammy nominations for Album of the Year and Best Pop Performance. Aja ended up being Steely Dan’s most commercially successful record, including hit singles “Peg”, “Deacon Blues”, and “Josie”.  Aja has made countless lists compiled of the Greatest or Most Important Records Of All Time, and in 2010, the Library of Congress selected the album for preservation in the National Recording Registry for being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.”
