Steely Dan Tickets
Walter Becker and Donald Fagen met in 1967 while attending Bard College in New York. While walking down the street one day, Fagen heard someone practicing guitar. Thinking that he had a very professional sound, he approached the guitarist and asked if he wanted to be in a band. The guitarist ended up being Walter Becker and the two would eventually form Steely Dan in 1972 after moving to Brooklyn.
The duo quickly found that they had similar tastes in music. Drawing from Jazz, R&B, Rock and even Funk, Steely Dan would be largely responsible for the sound that would soon become a large Jazz-Rock Fusion movement in popular music.
Their 1972 commercial debut album, "Can't Buy a Thrill," took the airwaves by storm. The album produced two Billboard Charting singles, including "Reelin' in the Years." During these early years, people who purchased tickets to Steely Dan shows found a surprise in the band's sound. Fagen was reluctant to sing during live shows, despite being the primary vocalist on the album, so during this time David Palmer took over the role of vocals during live shows. Eventually the other members of the band convinced Fagen to perform the vocals as they were intended and he has done so ever since.
In 1975 the band, concerned about the quality of their music and the overall creative process, decided to become a purely studio act. Steely Dan would not tour again until almost two decades later in 1993. It was during this time that the duo quickly established themselves as one of the most creative and demanding bands ever in the studio. Their 1977 multi-platinum album "Aja" actually took nearly seven months to record and credited almost forty separate musicians during the sessions. Many of the tracks even featuring completely different lineups.
From 1981 to 1993 the band would take a hiatus in order for its members to pursue solo careers and tend to their families. In 1995 a live album was recorded during the "Alive in America" Steely Dan Tour. After their reunion, Becker and Fagen would continue to tour while taking time off to record new material, which won them a Grammy in 2001 for their "Two Against Nature" release. So if you're looking for an amazing classic rock experience, Steely Dan is definitely a band that you'll want to see.
