Idiot Fish with Wally Schnalle

Fri Dec 7, 2012
Pagoda Lounge at The Fairmont Hotel
Jazz, Music


Make no mistake about it, Idiot Fish are a jazz band, but they're unlike any jazz band you've ever heard. They mix live jazz and funk with electronics and pre-programmed noise. Even in today's diverse musical landscape that qualifies as wildly unusual. Band leader and drummer Wally Schnalle is a local jazz-fusion master who has released several albums under his own name. In Idiot Fish, he not only drums but also triggers loops and electronic sounds. He is accompanied by two bass players (Joe Costantini and Dan Robbins). Schnalle even projects visuals on a screen during performances. Prepare to have your mind blown.
