They’re Reelin’ in the tunes

Nearly Dan

THE SPIRIT and sound of Steely Dan is to be honoured at Buxton’s Pavilion Arts Centre this weekend.

Less tribute and more homage, Nearly Dan is saviour to the legions of Dan fans desperate to hear live the meticulously-crafted grooves and allusive lyrical style of Fagen and Becker.

Nearly Dan’s approach is faithful (though not reverential), relaxed (but as tight as their namesakes) and full of their own spirit and spontaneous humour.

On their 2012 Reelin’ in the Years Anniversary Tour, this ten-piece band promise all the Dan favourites in a two-hour-plus show, featuring tracks from the groove of Countdown to Ecstasy to the super-cool of The Royal Scam, Aja and Gaucho.

Nearly Dan - The Spirit & Sound of Steely Dan comes to the Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton, on Sunday June 17, at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £14 and £16, are available from the Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonopera house.org.uk.
