Grammy Award-winning jazz rock band Steely Dan is coming to the Central Coast this spring.
The band will perform April 14 at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, just a few days after Grateful Dead tribute band Dark Star Orchestra takes the stage, according to Jessica Puchli of Nederlander Concerts.
Founded by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, Steely Dan enjoyed its greatest popularity in the 1970s and early ‘80s with hits including “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Do It Again,” “Peg” and “Reelin’ in the Years.” The band is known for its sly, subversive lyrics, complex composition and precise recording techniques.
Becker and Fagen reunited in 1993 to produce two more albums: 2000’s “Two Against Nature,” which netted Steely Dan three Grammy wins, including Album of the Year, and 2003’s “Everything Must Go.”
Never miss a local story.
Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
Tickets for Steely Dan’s April 14 concert, which go on sale Saturday, cost $69 to $125.
