Although they didn't play this summer at Red Rocks, I have seen them the prior three summers in a row. Steely Dan is still excellent and one of my favorite bands. Can't wait to see them again.

Steely Dan is artful, tasteful, brilliant ensemble playing, great catalog to draw from, and enthused to play. I saw them in late October on the last night of a three night run at the intimate Masonic Theater on top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, CA and it ranked among the top five concert experiences of my near 40 years of concert attending! It was "Internet Request Night" where they played requests all nights long which made the night practically "Greatest Hits Night". When the tour de force show stopper Aja is the third song of the night, you know something special is happening!!! They are unique, iconoclasic, American art-school cool, and a treat to hear and watch. Break the Certificate of Deposit the next time they come to town. After seeing them four times in the past five years, they always deliver the goods!
