The all-star tribute to legendary fusion act Steely Dan returns to New Orleans for a late-night performance at The Howlin' Wolf on Thursday, April 30th at 2:00 a.m. (technically early morning May 1st). The band will once again feature members of Turkuaz, The Motet, Ghost-Note/Snarky Puppy, and The Nth Power.
Guitarist/vocalist Nick Cassarino of The Nth Power will bring his incredible musicianship and spot-on Donald Fagen impression to the table alongside his Nth Power brother-in-arms, bassist Nate Edgar. Snarky Puppy and Ghost-Note percussionist Nate Werth is also on board for the tribute, as is the incomparable vocalist from The Motet, Lyle Divinsky.
The band will also feature seven members of power-funk favorites Turkuaz: drummer Michelangelo Carubba, guitarist Craig Brodhead, vocalists Shira Elias and Sammi Garett, as well as Greg Sanderson, Joshua Schwartz, and Chris Brouwers, a.k.a. The Turkuaz Horns. Local saxophonist Bryan McNamara will also be on hand to round out the four-piece horn section. Joey Porter, the diversely talented keyboardist from The Motet, will act as musical director for the performance.
