"There are Steely Dan tribute bands, and then there's Slinky Thing. They go deep into the Steely Dan and Donald Fagen catalogs to play songs rarely attempted by typical SD 'tribute' bands… as well as the expected 'best of' tunes like 'Aja' and 'Peg'… honoring original arrangements and building from there with extended solos and grooves. A must see/hear."Tom Manche, songwriter.com
"I LOVE these guys. Great players, great tunes, and fun!"Amy Foster Entertainment Director, Hornblower Dinner Cruises
"You guys really rocked the Millenium Tower… thanks for being so professional and entertaining! We all had a great time."Sylvie Rivera Lead Concierge Club Level, La Vie Event Planner, Millenium Tower
"Slinky Thing's debut gig was one of the best nights we've ever had at The Back Room; they sold out all available standing room and had people dancing outside the club. They blew the roof off and we're Looking forward to their return!"Sam Rudin, The Back Room
Sigh... another sold out show at the Back Room, but canceled due to COVID-19.
Another sold out show at the Back Room with people turned away at the door.
First show at the Back Room in Berkeley… sold out! 8-)
Private party for the residents of the famous Millennium Tower in San Francisco… many Dan fans in the audience.
