Award-Winning Group Takes the Chill Off! Forget about the frigid temps outside as 15 of Dane County’s finest musicians heat up the stage when Steely Dane visits the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids on Friday, January 17, at 7:30 pm. As they perform music from the Steely Dan and Donald Fagen songbook, you’ll hear the songs we associate with the warm summer of 1978, our first kiss, and those ski trips out to Colorado. The band brought together jazz, rock, and R&B sensibilities to form a whole new kind of pop music. Winner of the MAMA award for best cover band and Madison Magazine’s Best Cover Band, Steely Dane is dedicated to not only faithfully reproducing this songbook, but to bringing an energetic live-show experience to the crowd. Featuring a four-piece horn section and three background singers, the show consists of hits and deep cuts that are sure to have you out of your seats, singing along. Here’s a sampling: www.steelydane.com. Tickets are $36 (plus tax) and are available through The Arts Council of South Wood County.
