Donald Fagen and Walter Becker would be immensely proud and impressed with this nine-piece outfit.

For they gave adoring fans of Steely Dan a fantastic and wonderful rendition of some of their well known tracks.

From their opening number of Boston Rag right through to their final track of My Old School it was a concert to thrill for the ardent followers of the American band.

Nearly Dan’s approach is faithful, though not reverential, and relaxed but as tight as their namesakes and they brought their own unique spirit to the gig.

Now in its 21st year on the road, they played many of the Steely Dan favourites in their 19 song concert and included Green Earrings, Black Cow, Haitian Divorce, Peg, Aja, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, Don’t Take Me Alive, Deacon Blues, FM, Kid Charlemagne and Reeling In The Years.

It was a wonderful treat for music lovers of the band.
