Jazz duo from the iconic band STEELY DAN
Saturday 14 March, 8pm
What an evening we have lined up for the Causeway Coast! Jim Beard (Steely Dan keyboard) and Jon Herington (Steely Dan guitar) will be honoring their jazz roots with an eclectic evening of instrumental music performed on guitar and piano. Their collaboration has been woven into many projects through the years beginning with their early college years, including jazz supergroup Chroma.
In addition to their longstanding contributions to Steely Dan, Jim brings his deep experience with a long list of the world’s best modern music-makers, including Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, and Mike Stern, and Jon brings the experience of his many years as a supporting guitarist for Boz Scaggs, Madeleine Peyroux, Donald Fagen, Bette Midler, the late Phoebe Snow, and others. The duo will present a collection of music that includes jazz standards, pop classics, and selected tunes from their solo recordings. Listeners can expect the unexpected and will be treated to a new approach on songs by luminaries such as Weather Report, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Steely Dan and many more.
