Similar Fashion is an avant-rollercoaster-jazz-n-roll band from Los Angeles. Led by saxophonist Logan Hone, Similar Fashion features viola shredder Lauren Baba, magic-emmitting guitarist Gregory Uhlmann, & fire-wielding polyrhythmic groove machine Jesse Quebbeman-Turley. The band combines Logan’s kinetic compositions with intense and joyous singing, interlocking grooves, lush landscapes, and dancing. 

Their new album "Portrait of", which was mixed by John Dieterich (Deerhoof), is set to release in February 2018. Their debut album Logan Hone's Similar Fashion was released in 2015 on pfMentum and was described by LA Weekly as "a mostly irreverent romp full of chaotic sounds." Downtown Music Gallery called it a "breath of fresh air" that "certainly does feel good."

Similar Fashion toured twice in 2016 and has performed and presented lectures at Angel City Jazz Festival, Bootleg Theater, Cry and Roar, University of Utah, University of Reno, Snow College, College of Southern Idaho, Berkeley Arts Festival, The Blue Whale, Open Gate Concert Series, MorYork, and more.
