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.
2012 celebrated three major anniversaries…
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”… 30 years since the release of Donald Fagen’s classic solo masterpiece “The Nightfly” and 15 years since Nearly Dan were formed.
The ten 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.
A real treat for all music lovers and an unmissable concert for any aspiring musician young or old.
