Dukes of September

Dukes of September at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald, and Boz Scaggs are bringing their talent to the  Farm  Bureau Insurance Lawn on Friday, August 24 as the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue.

This supergroup brings the jazz, blues, and soul this summer’s concert series has been needing at White River State Park. These three plan to bring back songs from their previous career as The New York Rock and Soul Revue as well as several covers they have picked up along the years.

To explain a little bit about this supergroup, Donald Fagen was the co-founder of Steely Dan alongside Walter Becker in his early career. After the two split in 1981, Fagen went through his solo career which brought him three albums and another on the way.

Michael McDonald is a 5 time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter. His career with Steely Dan led him to another successful career in the Doobie Brothers until 1982. Along with various appearances and performances for his solo career McDonald is hard at work with the current tour.

Boz Scaggs started out in the Steve Miller Band and went on to focus on a solo career. After a small hiatus in the 1980’s he continues to record his own music and hop along this tour that will bring them all here to Indianapolis!

It wasn’t until 2010 that Fagen, McDonald, and Scaggs agreed to bring back the music and hit the road for touring after The New York Rock and Soul Revue split ways in 1993. This show will certainly bring back memories from a decade ago and refresh the audience with a variety of music.

Did you know??

Michael McDonald was hired as an additional singer in the early 1970’s tours of Steely Dan because Donald Fagen had severe stage fright.

William Royce is the actual name given to Boz Scaggs. In his early years a schoolmate gave him the nickname “Bosley” which eventually led to Boz.
