    The Fine Colombians: Steely Dan Tribute

    Rolling Stone magazine called Steely Dan “the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies.” We’re not really sure what that means, but we do know that even to this day, long after they broke up in 1981, the music of Steely Dan remains iconic and instantly recognizable with its blend of jazz, traditional pop, and R&B with cryptic and ironic lyrics. The music is also complex enough to intimidate most bands from attempting to perform it.

Not long after that incredible 2002 show, Cheryl moved back to her native Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Wendel continued holding court in Knoxville as one of our area’s most talented pianists/organists, bandleaders, and live music producers.
