Slinky Thing: The Music of Steely Dan

Slinky Thing.jpg

Slinky Thing is a seven-piece band that has been focused on playing the music of Steely Dan and Donald Fagen for over eight years.

Bandleader Bruce Linde says, “Just as jazz players play music from The Real Book, we play music from the Steely Dan and Fagen songbooks. We love and honor the songs but are not a note-for-note tribute band. As fun as these songs are to listen to, they’re even more fun to play!"

Because the band performs only rarely, each performance is a fun and exciting event. We hope you’ll join us for a night of Steely Dan and Donald Fagen, from “Aja” to “The Caves of Altamira” to “Green Flower Street”…and more!

Players include: Karla Downey (lead vox, percussion), Bruce Linde (lead vox, bass), Bill Sparks (sax), Frank India (drums), David Surovell (guitar), Brian Osborn (guitar), and Will Henley-Dias (keyboards).

"I LOVE these guys. Great players, great tunes, and FUN!" - Amy Foster, Entertainment Services Manager, Hornblower Cruises and Events
