Ron Hall first came up with the idea of forming a Steely Dan tribute band in July
2003. The goal was to form a group of musicians who would be capable of recreating
the timeless music of Steely Dan LIVE on-stage, and do so in a way that would
be AUTHENTIC and POWERFUL. This would require a special group of players, individuals
with exceptional talent, a love for the music, and an attitude of genuine respect
for everyone involved with the project.
The months and years that followed have been a wonderful journey, and have
resulted in a group of players that are among the finest musicians in the area.
Each of them love paying tribute to the highly polished, ironic, unpredictable
and beloved jazz-rock music of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. The band is known
for their note-perfect renditions of Steely Dan favorites, combined with their
professional stage show.
In an era when more and more bands are relying on pre-recorded backing tracks
during their shows, you can rest assured that Steelin Dan's shows are 100%
AUTHENTIC, 100% LIVE! There are NO pre-recorded tracks, no crutches, not even
the use of a click-track. Everything you hear at a Steelin Dan concert is being
performed live in front of you!
Steelin Dan presents a memorable experience, one that continues to excite
fans throughout California and the western states.
