I thought the show was amazing. Donald Fagen's voice is as strong as ever. Just disappointed they didn't play one of my favorites Deacon Blues. Overall great show and Syracuse Amphitheater is a great venue!

The mix FOH wasn’t that good at all

4.0 star rating Alan Turgiss from Boston, Massachusetts


On November 17th Steely Dan preformed a selection of random stuff along with a flawless execution of the Aja Album. The band was as expected, musically tight, and locked in on an expanded rifts and highlights which all previous viewers have encountered over the years. The musicianship and presentation were top notch as the presented list of greatest hits. Donald Fagen’s performance and vocal were spot on along with great solo’s from: Keith Carlock on drums; Jon Herington & Connor Kennedy, guitar; Walt Weiskopf and Roger Rosenberg, saxes; Michael Leonhart, trumpet; Jim Pugh, trombone; and vocalists Carolyn Leonhart, Catherine Russell, LaTanya Hall and Cindy Mizelle. We enjoyed this show tremendously. Great catalog along with great performance.

Loved the show at the Concord Pavilion California last night! But also agree on sound quality - muffled at times! This is our third show and loves it when the music is crystal clear!

I have loved Steely Dan for years and was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to see them with Steve Winwood when I bought the tickets in January 2020 for a June 2020 show. The show got Covid-postponed twice so we finally got to see the show on May 28, 2022. We were so disappointed that Steve Winwood no longer accompanied Steely Dan, but were still excited to see the show. Donald Fagan played and sang his heart out, but his biggest strength is in his ability to select great musicians and backup singers! Our biggest disappointment was that he selected to sing so few of his prior very popular songs. They still sound great but would have loved to hear more of their hits that we knew.

I’ve been listening to Steely Dan for years and admire their tight sound. On Friday night at the Woodlands Mitchell Pavilion Center they fully met all expectations! The song list was perfect, however, Donald had a hard time hitting his notes and had to lean back away from the Mic half the time. The back up singers were able to fill in the gaps but it was tough not to be disappointed not hearing the lead vocals clearly. I think Donald may need to bring the key down a notch or two to be able to hit his high notes otherwise, the vocals just did not pierce the sound of the music. Overall it was still a musical treat to listen to the band and admire their deep song list.

3.0 star rating King John from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Steely Dan was fantastic , as expected, but the sound system in Heinz Hall really sucked. The vocals were muffled to the point that the lyrics were usually unintelligible and were totally overshadowed by the instruments - especially the drums, which often drowned out the horn section. I had invited a friend at the last minute because my wife was ill and, although he was familiar with Steely Dan's hits, he could not understand 90% of the lyrics.
