The Dans of Steel

Bay Area-based band The Dans of Steel celebrates the music of Steely Dan, the prolific American rock band founded in 1972 by masterminds Donald Fagen and Walter Becker.

Started in 2017, it's a deserving tribute from five deeply soulful musicians who came together in admiration of the detailed craftings and artistic splendor of Steely Dan.

The Dans of Steel — Waddell Bell, Ronnie Smith, Dave Shul, Malcolm Marshall, and Raliegh Neal — explore, “funkafy,” and lovingly recreate songs from throughout the Steely Dan canon that bring together jazz, rock, and R&B sensibilities.
