Even the most discriminating Dan fans will be hard-pressed to find flaws in Steelin' Dan amazingly accurate arrangements and markmanslike musicianship!
Some tribute bands put their own spin on things, but Steelin' Dan plays a song exactly how it sounds on the records. If you just landed here from some another world and sat down and listened to them, you'd think it's the actual act. It's that authentic.
