Major Dudes - Steely Dan Tribute

Saturday, September 24, 2022 8:00 pm

Major Dudes salutes the music of two of America's greatest songwriters, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, known collectively as Steely Dan. This extraordinary 6 piece ensemble brings a wealth of experience and talent to their interpretations of every Steely Dan top 40 hit (there were ten including Rikki Don't Lose That Number, Do It Again, Peg and Hey Nineteen), numerous excellent Dan "deep cuts", and every tune from their classic 1977 record, Aja. They are multiple winners of the Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Tribute Band.

Major Dudes' performance of the Aja album carries additional weight when they return to the Lexington Village Theatre. September 24th marks 45 years and one day since the 9/23/77 release of their Grammy Award winning platinum seller. And even more significantly, Steely Dan turns 50 in 2022. Their first album, Can't Buy a Thrill, dropped in November of 1972. Join us as we say happy half a century to this superb Hall of Fame band.

Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he's not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Dave finds jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today.

Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City's Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He's appeared 5 times on Comedy Central's and AXS.TV's "Live At Gotham" and was a finalist on season 8 of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC. He became a regular on the extremely popular "The Artie Lange and Anthony Cumia Radio Show," and was honored to be brought in full time as 3rd mic. When Artie left the program, It became "The Anthony Cumia Show with Dave Landau", where Dave became a valued member of the broadcast as co-host for two years.

In 2021, Dave became 3rd chair on one of the most popular conservative talk shows in the world, LOUDER WITH CROWDER on Blaze TV.

After only two performances, he joined the ranks of professional comedians with his first paid booking at Gadzooks Comedy Club. A native of Detroit Michigan and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc, Dwayne is taking the comedy world by storm.

"Right then I knew comedy was what I was here on earth for," he laughs. "And I'd much rather take laughter than a bullet any time."

Dwayne's topics range from current events, men and women relationships to the crazy situations he's encountered as a police officer. As an actor, Dwayne has appeared in the ABC crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, and the movie "Crave". He recently shot a pilot for a new sitcom starring him called "Joe vs Joe."

Dwayne has shared the stage with Louis Anderson, Tim Allen and has opened for the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. Dwayne Gill is one of the fastest rising comedians on the national scene today.
