Aja Vu / Stealin Chicago

Tributes to Steely Dan and Chicago

Lafayette Art & Wine Festival – Fiesta Stage

Saturday, September 19, 2015

Noon to 2:00 pm




The San Francisco based Aja Vu / Stealin’ Chicago band performs the music of Steely Dan and Chicago. At this year’s festival they will recreate the combination of rock, jazzy blues and unique storytelling that has made the Steely Dan sound endure throughout pop culture for 30+ years.

They will also be recreating the music recorded by Terry Kath, Robert Lamm and Peter Cetera and their different vocal styles. The unique sound incorporates a strong use of melodic horn lines — the sound of Chicago.

"Sharing the Steely Dan and Chicago music with the fans of the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival has been a real treat for Aja Vu for many years. Looking forward to more of the same at this year's festival!"

Jay's Band Notes about Aja Vu / Stealin' Chicago

Nothing more confusing than a schizophrenic band! They used to be grounded in their pure love and execution of Steely Dan originals. They played many more concerts than Steely Dan, primarily a studio band.

But what does one do when they have conquered the mountain? Climb another one of course. A couple of years ago, right on our Lafayette Art & Wine stage, these guys did their first set as a “Chicago” cover band.

The original dream of the founding members of Chicago was to integrate all the musical diversity from their home city and weave a new sound, a rock and roll band with horns. The hometown kids made good and now the same guys that keep the Steely Dan sound alive are recreating the full feel of a Chicago concert.

I do remember my first CTA album and that great summer evening I spent as a teenager under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl, hearing Chicago with my date, and wondering why she even agreed to going out with me/ She must have been a Chicago fan too.
