"Heads up, Steely Dan fans: Instead of waiting for their next tour, get your fix with local tribute band Steelin' Dan. From the straightforward pop/rock of Reelin’ in the Years to the quirky, jazz-infected Green Earrings, even the most discriminating Dan fans will be hard-pressed to find flaws in Steelin' Dan’s amazingly accurate arrangements and marksmanlike musicianship!"
