Steely Dan was right on the Mark. They were so GREAT,we all stood in the pouring rain to hear every song. Their Setlist shined. Donald was very entertaining and hip. The Band was STELLAR. Great night. Great music. They still have it ! Every song was a Hit. We Loved them.

5.0 star rating Eileen Chase from Saratoga, NY


The Doobie Brothers opened the show and certainly did not disapppoint. They belted out their songs effortlessly. They also played for quite a while. Next up was Steely Dan. What can I say. They were awesome. Transported me back to my college days. They played many of their songs and I have to agree with the reviewer from Cincinnati, Steeley Dan has a sound like no other band. They really are timeless. A great show.

5.0 star rating Scott Wood from Cincinnati, Ohio


It was a great night in Cincinnati for a concert . I think the Doobie Brothers portfolio of hits is under rated in the music world. The Doobie Brothers were amazing they played a lot of great hits and sounded amazing . Steely Dan , what can I say..there music is timeless and I love there music and it was awesome to hear them live. As we get older most of us stop listening to our albums like we did when we were really young , we tend to just hear the hits on classic rock radio and because of that I want to thank Steely Dan for bringing me back to the album days ..hearing some songs that are amazing but not on the play lists of classic rock radio was refreshing . I also thank Steely Dan for having a sound unlike no other, today's music is all ballads and cookie cutter music infused with ripped off music from the past. I was disappointed that Steely Dan left out Deacon Blues as it is one of my all time favorite songs.

I can only think that the negative reviews here are from people with absolutely no musical knowledge, and probably listen to one or two songs off of every album they've ever owned. Steely Dan has never been about "hits", although they always throw in some radio play songs for those who don't bother listening to entire collections. This is a band of world class musicians, if you take the time to read individual bios, you would find that they all have played and recorded with many huge names in the industry. These are "go to " musicians for a lot of your "hit makers". To have this collection of talent on one stage is nothing short of incredible, and if you can't understand it, maybe you just shouldn't go to a top shelf show such as this. Stick with the 3 chord, 4/4 time standard radio crap. I don't want to discourage anyone from expanding their musical horizons, just disappointed with the lack of credit given here to a band that is head and shoulders above most.

Doobies blew the place away. All voices are still in tact . GREAT SHOW. How can Steely Dan possibly follow this. Just like they did ! Fagan, without Becker, still fabulous. I had almost forgotten the excellence of the music and the musicians that Fagan assembles for both the studio sessions and the touring shows. At 73, I was on my feet and rocking my butt off throughout both performances. I'd go again next year (if they come around) in a heartbeat !

5.0 star rating Jim Wiederaenders from Seattle, Washington


I feel bad for people dissappointed by Doobie Brothers or Steely Dan because I thought they were both freaking awesome. Doobies always deliver. Fagen brought good energy post Walter. Donald moves around like a blind guy (no disrespect) for years, and has an increasing east coast twang in his voice that they seemed to soften with mixing. But who cares? Donald is the greatest talent, his music is beautifully complex and unique, and he rocked the house. Mountaintop! I feel cleansed until next time. If you like the Dan, do not stay away due to some luke warm reviews. In Seattle this summer, check out Nearly Dan at Jazz Alley four nights in July. Don't snear. ND is electric because they spin Donald's music so well. This music of Steely Dan is the best music and it's live.
