Donald plays a solo gig and Steely Dan surprises

With Steely Dan's small venue Heavy Rollers 2007 tour up to three announced shows so far, Donald Fagen has decided to play two solo dates. On February 2-3 he'll be at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock.

Sharing the bill with Fagen will be the roots-rock-gospel ensemble Ollabelle and Phoebe Snow.
One of Ollabelle's members is
Amy Helm daughter of Fagen's wife Libby.

Ollabelle will open the show, then serve as the backing band for Fagen and Snow. Fagen will be performing Steely Dan songs.

Steely Dan will do a first for the group; play a corporate gig. It's the annual National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE)convention who'll cough up the dough to get an exclusive show for the convention participants. The convention takes place in Las Vegas January 15 - 18.
