The Fez: A Tribute to Steely Dan

Sat, 28-Mar-2020 - 7:00 PM

The Wieting Theatre is proud and very pleased to announce a return engagement of The Fez on Saturday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. According to The Fez’s Facebook page, “The Fez is a 15-piece band composed of some of the finest musicians in Eastern Iowa dedicated to faithfully reproducing the jazz/rock fusion masterpieces of Steely Dan.

The Fez has been impressing audiences around Eastern Iowa for several years. During the 2011 Iowa City Jazz Festival, The Fez, performing on a small side stage, attracted almost the entire main stage crowd, causing the headlining act to begin their performance to a fraction of the audience.

The Fez is able to perform over 80% of the classic Steely Dan catalog. Four albums: Katy Lied, The Royal Scam, Aja, and Gaucho have been performed in their entirety. Steve Porcaro (keyboardist for Toto, Boz Scaggs, Michael Jackson, et al. and brother of Steely Dan drummer Jeff Porcaro), after viewing a video on YouTube of The Fez, is quoted as saying, "You guys are (explicative deleted) great!"

Advanced tickets are $20.00 from a theatre guild member for $20.. Tickets (if available) at the door will be $25. Doors will open at 6:30. Advanced tickets can be also be purchased by calling Michelle Evans (641-751-0775) or Mary Fasse-Shaw (641-751-5251).
