Dukes of September Rhythm Revue
August 9, 2012
Three R&B legends, singer/pianist Donald Fagen, vocalist/keyboardist Michael McDonald and singer/guitarist Boz Scaggs make up the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue coming to the Citi Wang Theatre on August 9th for one show only.
This ensemble has taken this tour across the country performing classic rock, R&B and Motown hits from the 60s and 70s. The musicians take turns on lead vocals and even perform some of their own hits. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Fagen says that the idea behind the group “…was to play music that we all liked when we were kids — music that made us want to become musicians in the first place.”
Donald Fagen is the co-leader/founder and keyboardist for Steely Dan. Some of his hits include “Do It Again,” “Reeling in the Years,” “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Dirty Work,” “Bodhisattva,” “My Old School,” “Night By Night,” “Pretzel Logic,” “Black Friday,” “Bad Sneakers,” and “Third World Man.”
Michael McDonald is a five-time Grammy winning artist and songwriter who is known for his work with various charitable causes, as well as his days with The Doobie Brothers. Some hits include “What a Fool Believes,” “Takin’ It to the Streets,” and his Grammy-award winning rendition of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
Boz Scaggs is a Grammy Award winning guitarist who you may recognize from his contributions to the Steve Miller Band. His hits include “Look What You’ve Done to Me,” “Lowdown,” “Isn’t It Time,” “Hard Times,” “Jojo,” and more!
Don’t miss these three musicians as they take you on a music revue of some of classic hits of the 60s and 70s this summer!
