Celebrating 4 decades 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 and Gaucho also featuring Donald Fagen’s classic solo masterpiece “The Nightfly”

A real treat for all music lovers and an unmissable concert for any aspiring musician young or old.  Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have created some of the most influential music of the pop era. Inspired arrangements and witty, often biting, lyrics combine to make this some of the most distinctive music ever to grace the turntable, with hits such as  Reelin’ in the Years, Do It Again, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, Deacon Blues, Peg and FM, culled from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980.

They reunited in the early 90s and toured throughout the decade, releasing multi-Grammy winner Two Against Nature in 2000 and its acclaimed follow-up Everything Must Go in 2003. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
