Event Has Passed

Last Show: Monday 12 th February 2018

It’s with great pleasure that Simply Dan comes to PizzaExpress Live for some special shows to honour the release of Steely Dan’s 'Aja' album. The 11-piece band of professional/session musicians who have toured all over the world with number of famous artists, aims to faithfully replicate the songs of Steely Dan, and for this show will be playing the 'Aja' album in the correct order as well as many other of their famous songs.

“Simply Dan.......I've been booking bands for many years and I gotta say this lot are probably amongst the best I've encountered. They recreate so accurately the sound and feel of Steely Dan they transport anyone listening back in time to SD in their prime. Top notch musicians that nail it perfectly”

Noel Nevin (Cavern London)

With many of our members working as session musicians in London and the south east and performing with a diverse mix of artists nationally and worldwide, Simply Dan are an incredible band who faithfully capture the sound of Steely Dan.  The band was started in late 2016 when members Mark Roadnight, Mark Claydon, Russ Parker and Roger Evan decided to work on a band that that could deliver the beauty and virtuosity of Steely Dan while still portraying the fun of a stage show.  A few of the members currently write for major recording artists and decided to take that level of professionalism to this project.  They spent a few months finding the right players to join the group and who also had a passion for replicating the sound of Steely Dan.  The band members have performed with such diverse artists as current major vocalist Raye to Graeme Clark (wetwetwet), Tony Christie, Pee Wee Ellis, Marcella Detroit and Liberty X just to name a few.
