|Beka & DJ Logic feat. Victor Bailey & Friends
"This crew of young virtuosos is brimming with the kind of energy and ideas that bring the music to a new, exhilarating place", says Bill Milkowski about the band Beka & Logic Project and adds few words regarding band's main leader, a 18 year old pianist Beka Gochiashvili: "If Bud Powell had lived long enough to play a Mini-Moog, it might sound something like this."

It was back in summer of 2011 at Black Sea Jazz Festival, when Beka Gochiashvili met with an innovative turntablist and kindred spirit Jason Kibler a.k.a. DJ Logic and his band members in Take Five club, Batumi, Georgia. During jam-sessions in the club a musical chemistry quickly developed between them and they decided to form this band.
Besides Beka and DJ Logic the band is represented by highly talented alluring vocalist Butterscotch, world's famous electric bassist Victor Bailey, adventurous keyboardist James Hurt, alto sax titan Jaleel Shaw, and remarkable young powerhouse drummer Justin Tyson.
The band will perform tunes from its debut album Chillin' in Batumi.
