“Dan is the recipient of Sacramento Magazine’s 2008 Best of Sacramento Award: “Best Show Stealers.” “Heads up, Steely Dan fans: Instead of waiting for their next tour, get your fix with local tribute band Steelin’ Dan. From the straightforward pop/rock of Reelin’ in the Years to the quirky, jazz-infected Green Earrings, even the most discriminating Dan fans will be hard-pressed to find flaws in Steelin’ Dan’s amazingly
accurate arrangements and marksman like musicianship!” – Sacramento Magazine, November 2008. Steelin’ Dan also won the 2011 Sacramento Area Music Award (“SAMMIE” Award) as “BEST COVER BAND,” demonstrating once again the band’s tremendous popularity. Steelin’ Dan presents a memorable experience, one that continues to excite fans throughout California and the western states.”
