“REELY DAN” is the nation’s premier Steely Dan Tribute Band! Commandeered by musical co-directors Bob Blom (keyboard/vocal) and Steve Kikoen (guitar/vocal), this 12-piece jazz/rock collective of first-call studio musicians have been stunning audiences in the Chicago area since its inception in 2003. The band also features bassist Eugene McGhee, drummer Gary Claypool, and The Fabulous Martinis horn section, featuring Michael Hesiak/sax, Henry Salgado/trombone, and Tim Bales/trumpet. In the words of an infamous Chicago music journalist: “William Burrough’s Naked Lunch just got a lot tastier! I closed my eyes, and I was there. Bravo REELY DAN!” Multiple Grammy award-winning producer/engineer Phil Bonnano adds: “Painstakingly replicated arrangements meet with note-for-note solos and improvisatory chops galore - these guys just plain cook! If you dig Don & Walt, you owe it to yourself to check out REELY DAN.
