We had a great Friday night at the Waterfront in Wyandotte, MI. It was a packed house and very responsive for every bit of the Dan we delivered - the hits and the lesser known tunes. I mean when they go crazy for The Boston Rag either people are way hipper to Steely Dan than I ever knew, or we just played the hell out of the song. Maybe it's both. Not my call. Sure was fun though.
Most importantly, March 9th marked the first time Major Dudes performed as a six piece band. Carl Cafagna, our newest member, is just what the doctor ordered for a band that aspires to do the best job possible on Steely Dan songs with the fewest number of people. When ten to fifteen seems to be the norm, the Dudes get 'er done with half a dozen. Carl is recognized as one of the top saxophone/flute players in the state, is an excellent singer as well, and is also a fine drummer although we've yet to figure out how to use that particular talent. Give us time.
Spring and summer are right around the corner and the band will be busy. Do come and see us every chance you get. We'll make it worth your while.
