Rejoice Steely Dan Fans – It’s Hey Nineteen
Rejoice, Steely Dan fans! The next best thing to seeing the real band live is a local group of ten exceptional musicians, “Hey, Nineteen,” who play the music, note perfect. Just getting the right chords to these songs is like making a politician tell the truth. I’m a drummer who goes to clubs and fades into the walls waiting for the music to end, but I was stunned by this band, and overjoyed. Superb renditions of “Reeling in the Years,” “Rikki Don’t Lose that Number,” “Black Friday,” “Gaucho,” “Green Earrings,” “Peg,” “Barrytown,” “Kid Charlemagne,” and many other Steely Dan classics, including, unbelievably, “Third World Man.”
As good or better, Hey Nineteen Steely Dan Tribute.Last night Tamara and I went to the Garde Arts Center, New London, last night and saw “Hey Nineteen” – a Steely Dan tribute band. They were excellent. The very best live versions of the the recorded music of Steely Dan you will hear anywhere, and I suspect as good or better than Steely Dan themselves.
Michael John Linnard – November 2, 2014
Every aspect of the originals was played to perfection on stage. For me the most impressive aspect was the guitar lead breaks, which feature so much in almost every song. And are iconic pieces of improvised music recorded in the last 45 years. Steely Dan were famous for going through guitarists until they got the perfect lead break on their records… they used the best session musics. Therefore to be able to play every lead break means that you have to full absorb and play with total conviction a dozen different styles. And even the simplest is almost impossible to play. When you think that the average pop tune has 3 – 6 chords… “Deacon Blue” has 38 different chords.
What is Hey Nineteen about?
Hey Nineteen Steely Dan Tribute – Amazing 11 Piece Band – Gaucho is essentially a concept record about staying too long at the fair, and this track is its skeevy centerpiece. Steely Dan protagonists don’t come much more hilariously pathetic than the aging dude from this leisurely funk tune, who’s putting the moves on a 19-year-old. He brags about his frat exploits and tries to set the mood with some Aretha, only to find that his companion “don’t remember the Queen of Soul.” The song builds to perhaps the ultimate yacht-rock refrain, which many singing it back to the band live don’t seem to realize is pure satire: “The Cuervo Gold/The fine Colombian/Make tonight a wonderful thing.”
