Steelin’ Dan is northern California’s award winning Steely Dan tribute band. Steelin’ Dan has been performing throughout California and Northern Nevada for over 12 years and has developed a large and enthusiastic fan base. The band has been critically acclaimed in the media and was awarded the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Sammies Award for Best Tribute Band by the readers of Sacramento News and Review and a Best of Sacramento Award by Sacramento Magazine.
This 10- piece group of seasoned musicians recreates the timeless music of Steely Dan in a way that is authentic and powerful. Members of Steelin’ Dan have performed with world class performers including Natalie Cole, Todd Rundgren, Cher, Lou Rawls, Bourgeois Tagg, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Harris and Hall and Oates.
Steelin’ Dan will donate a portion of their proceeds to benefit bringing the Music & Memory program to Nevada County memory care facilities.
