Last month I caught Hey Nineteen Steely Dan Tribute for the first time since their debut show a few years back. The band takes on a lot, not only because of the complex tunes of Steely Dan, but also the size and scope of the band. Led by Dale Dejoy, the 11-piece band has all the right ingredients to make Steely Dan’s music come alive. They don’t take liberties with the arrangements and remain faithful to the tracks that Fagan and Becker laid down years ago. Every vocal, harmony, horn line, solo and sound are attended to with the utmost care. Every member is a master of their instrument and the “Babylon Sisters” backing vocalists not only layer lush harmonies, they are very entertaining to watch! With seven vocalists in the band you get an array of vocal styles to provide the best feel of that number. Hey Nineteen will “Do It Again” at the Ocean Mist on Saturday, January 27. “Any Major Dude Will Tell You” that this is a not-to-miss show. Get your tix early so there’ll be “No Static At All.” Yes, I am pushing the SD puns. Here’s one more for you: For more, “Pretzel Logic” to oceanmmist.net
