Nearly Dan: The Spirit & Sound of Steely DanSaturday 15 September 2018
The Spirit & Sound of Steely Dan. Less tribute and more homage, Nearly Dan is saviour to the growing legions of Dan fans, desperate to hear the meticulously crafted grooves and allusive lyrical style of Donald Fagen & Walter Becker. Nearly Dan’s approach is faithful, though not reverential, and relaxed but as tight as their namesakes. They bring their own unique spirit and spontaneous humour to every concert.
It’s been over 40 years since the release of the first Steely Dan album “Can’t buy a Thrill”, featuring the hits “Do it Again” and “Reelin’ in the years.”
Coming up to the bands 20th Anniversary, the 9 piece Nearly Dan promise all the Steely Dan favourites in a two hour plus show, featuring tracks from the groove of “Countdown to Ecstasy” to the super cool of celebrated albums “The Royal Scam”. “Aja”, “Gaucho” plus Donald Fagen’s classic solo masterpiece “The Nightfly” also feature.
A real treat for all music lovers and an unmissable concert for any aspiring musician young or old.
