Slinky Thing is an eight-piece band that has been playing the music of Steely Dan and Donald Fagen for over a dozen years.
Band leader 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 great as these songs are to listen to, they’re even more fun to play!"
Players include: Karla Downey (lead vox, percussion), Bruce Linde (lead vox, bass), Bill Sparks (sax), Frank India (drums), Bruce Tompkins (guitar, vox), Brian Osborn (guitar), Neal Roston (keyboards), John Pritchard (keyboards).
We hope you’ll join us outdoors for an afternoon of the music of Steely Dan and Donald Fagen, from Aja to Peg to Green Flower Street… and more!

Please note: Under the current circumstances, we recommend masks, even though we are outside. We hope that you are vaccinated, although we do not require it for our outdoor shows. We will continue to socially distance our seats, but you may rearrange them to your liking. And those seats will be standard folding chairs - no comfy couches outside, but they will be comfortably shaded. Only 60 tickets will be sold, and we expect all or most of them to be bought in advance. (Reimbursement for cancellation is guaranteed with 24-hour notice, and rain may cause a cancellation from our end). If a show is sold out, you may contact Sam via email (c2FtIHwgYmFja3Jvb21tdXNpYyAhIGNvbQ==) for permission to bring your own seats (and be charged at the "door" instead of in advance).
Please keep in mind that late afternoons can be chillier than expected, even on a warm spring day, especially when sitting still, so bring an extra layer! Cups of water will be available, but it might be a good idea to bring your own drinks/snacks.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING LIVE MUSIC!
