Donald Fagen & The Nightflyers will take the Stiefel stage at 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 31st. Tickets for this performance go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, April 28th.
Donald Fagen, musician, composer, vocalist, producer, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and co-founder of Steely Dan and The Dukes of September, has a new special project taking to the road this summer: Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers. On this tour, Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers will play songs from Fagen’s celebrated solo albums, Steely Dan hits, plus, as promised by Fagen, “some swell surprises.”
The tour is set to begin on August 3rd and 4th at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The U.S. tour leg will hit more than 20 cities before wrapping at The Masonic in San Francisco on September 16th. Following the U.S. dates, the band will travel to Japan for select performances.
Joining Fagen (keyboard, vocals) is an all new band, The Nightflyers, a quartet of young musicians that Donald has been working with over the past few years near his home in Woodstock, New York. The Nightflyers are Connor Kennedy (guitar, vocals), Lee Falco (drums, vocals), Brandon Morrison (bass, vocals) and Will Bryant (keyboards, vocals). Previously, the foursome have been performing together in haunts, joints, dives, and even a few reputable establishments, up and down New York’s Hudson River Valley and beyond.
