Nearly Dan (music of Steely Dan) - 7:30pm & 9:30pm (two shows)
2033 6th Ave
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 441-9729 [map]
Price: $32

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley presents Nearly Dan for three nights and five shows! Band members are Jack Klitzman (saxes, flute, clarinet), Ed Weber (keyboards), Brad Boal (drums), Jamie Dieveney (lead vocals), Darelle Holden, Kelly Ash and Tina Hart (vocals), Rick Houle (bass), Michael McGee (guitar), Frank Seeberger (guitar), Andy Omdahl (trumpet), and Rich Cole (saxes & clarinet). Show times Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Show times Sunday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm Friday at 5:30pm Saturday and Sunday.

ARTIST INFO

The demands of the music of Steely Dan are high, both in technical proficiency and in preserving the sarcastic, knowing attitude originally conceived. Nearly Dan does well on both fronts, fusing together the chops of 12 diversely-talented artists (with backgrounds in jazz, rock, R&B, country, and swing) into a veritable butcher’s shop window of precisely cut bass lines; surgical, highly reminiscent guitar solos; a biting yet sophisticated horn section and richly marbled beats. Nearly Dan's recipes avoid over-earnest adulation, coolly presenting Steely Dan’s Burroughsian black humor and notoriously perfectionist musicianship. Mixed with their own arrangements of those masterpiece compositions, the result is pure ambrosia. Nearly Dan puts their earnestness where it matters most; into the relaxed but highly practiced execution of great songs like the bouncing “Reelin’ In the Years,” the sorrowful, karmic circularity of “Do It Again,” or the funny but mortified “Peg.” Endorsed by the company they keep, this group’s musicians have performed with greats such as Stevie Wonder, Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Lou Rawls, the Four Tops, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Huey Lewis, Tower Of Power, Tito Puente, Natalie Cole and Gladys Knight.

313 Soul feat. Darelle Holden - 7pm & 9:45pm (two shows)
115 108th Ave NE

USA
(425) 454-2776 [map]
Price: $20

Kelly sings backup vocals with powerhouse Darelle Holden - former backup singer for Tom Jones! - and her band, 313 Soul.

313 Soul is a soulful salute to the music of Motown featuring the Northwest’s finest studio and jazz musicians. With this combination 313 Soul follows the exact formula that made the “Motown” sound famous, polished and funky.

Fronted by Darelle Holden’s silky smooth vocals and funky grooves 313 Soul finds a home in Seattle, her hometown. “20 Feet From Stardom”, directly resembles Holden’s career whether its singing and touring with Tom Jones – for 17 years – or taking the stage with Stevie Wonder – at Key Arena – Elton John, Earth Wind and Fire, Jazz great Norman Brown, or the pop duo Millie Vanilli; it all comes out when she takes the mic.

“Come get your Motown on.”
