July 10 - Nearly Dan

Nearly Dan — Sounds of Summer Concert Series

July 10 @ 6:30 pm  8:30 pm

The demands of the music of Steely Dan are high, both in technical proficiency and in preserving the sarcastic, knowing attitude originally conceived. Nearly Dan excels on both fronts, fusing together the chops of 12 diversely-talented artists into a veritable butcher’s shop window of precisely cut bass lines; surgical, highly reminiscent guitar solos; a biting yet sophisticated horn section and richly marbled beats. Satiate your hunger for music with depth when Nearly Dan once again takes the stage as a returning Sounds of Summer favorite.
