Oh, my. Someone has been extremely reticent when it comes to letting the good visitors of this site know what's happening with Major Dudes. That finger points directly at little old me, Paul, bassist and bandleader. Today, I decided to play around with the design of the web site (still deciding if I like it), and add our confirmed upcoming dates. It's going to be a busy year. We have six gigs already for the coming year and very much hoping to nail down another dozen or so. We're back at it on the first day of March at Road Rangers in Taylor. Hope to see you then, or at one or more of the upcoming shows.
Detroit Music Award winners for outstanding tribute band in 2019, 2020, and 2022, Major Dudes is an extraordinary 6 piece group consisting of highly regarded veteran musicians who have all recorded and/or toured with numerous regional and national artists over the last four-plus decades.
This accomplished lineup delivers impeccable renditions of every Steely Dan Top 40 hit (fyi, there were 10 of them) and choice deep cuts that fans of the Grammy winning legends will love to see and hear.
Major Dudes have been captivating Michigan audiences since 2015 in nightclubs, at outdoor festivals, concert halls, and private events. Their tight arrangements, sizzling solos, and strong vocals capture Donald Fagen's unique stylings, and they ably recreate the challenging melodies and harmonies Steely Dan's classic music is noted for.
