Steely Dan's "The Royal Scam" Live @ Martyrs' 1/24

After a highly successful performance at the Jazz Record Art Collective last September, Neil Carson reconvenes his 12-piece band for a very special double-bill of classic albums at Martyrs'.

Newly-christened as "Neil Carson's Day-Glo Freaks," the band takes the stage once more to perform Steely Dan's classic 1976 album The Royal Scam in its entirety, with Neil's lovingly crafted arrangements and a spectacular lineup of Chicago musicians. Plus, Bonzo Squad will bring back to life Stevie Wonder's spectacular 1973 album Innervisions, in a one-night-only musical pairing that celebrates some of the very best music the 70's have to offer. 

Neil Carson's day-glo freaks:

Alyssa Allgood, Greg Woods - Vocals; Constantine Alexander - Trumpet; Corbin Andrick - Tenor/Alto Sax; Alex Wasily - Trombone; Dan Burke - Bari Sax; Zoey Witz - Guitar; Andrew Lawrence, Carl Kennedy - Keyboards; Andrew Vogt - Bass; Zack Marks - Drums
