Steely Dan - 2014-08-19 - Appleton, WI

Steely Dan
2014-08-19
Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, Appleton, WI 

Audience recording, very good quality
Mp3 @ 320 kbps

Another excellent show I saw this summer was Steely Dan, on their 2014 Jamalot Ever After Tour. They sounded great, with a fantastic backing band and singers (stand-outs were drummer Keith Carlock and guitarist Jon Herington). They did a nice selection of songs from throughout their career, some with updated arrangements. They've been doing this sort of 'Big Band' version of their songs for quite awhile now, but they have really manged to perfect it now and still keep things fresh and exciting. So, in honor of that show (which I don't have a recording of), here is a good quality recording from another show on the same tour from a couple weeks earlier, with a very similar setlist (only songs different were that the show I saw included 'Rikki Don't Lose That Number' and 'Godwhacker' instead of 'Two Against Nature' and 'Green Earrings'). A fine show, and one that enables me to update the Steely Dan included here to the current year and tour.

Pictures included are not from the posted Appleton show, but are my own pics from the show I saw (2014-08-29 - Bangor, ME).
