WEST CHESTER, PA — The Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center (226 N. High St., West Chester, PA) will be “Reelin’ In The Years” as they welcome preeminent Steely Dan tribute band Countdown To Ecstasy on Saturday, February 4 at 8 PM.
Considered one of the nation’s most authentic Steely Dan tribute bands, Philadelphia based Countdown To Ecstasy seeks to bring all the original feelings of watching a Steely Dan performance to their audiences with setlists including “Reelin’ In The Years,” “Midnight Cruiser,” and “Do It Again,” from Steely Dan’s 1972 album Can’t Buy A Thrill. They also include several songs from the 1973 album, the namesake of this tribute Countdown To Ecstasy and much more.
According to members of Countdown To Ecstasy, it’s all about respect. This tribute band makes it a point not to focus on replication, but rather to pay respect to one of the biggest names in the 70s music scene. From Steely Dan’s lyrics to their incredible range and on-stage presence, Countdown to Ecstasy pays homage to the soft-rock, jazz-pop fusion that made Steely Dan the sound of a generation.
For Countdown To Ecstasy, music is not a thing, it’s a lifestyle. This fourteen-piece band has had years of experience in the music scene, playing at sold-out venues nationwide. With vocals by Matt Sevier, Chelsea ViaCava, Khrista White, and Teresa Grace, as well as instrumentals that leaves audiences in a mind-blowing trance, these musicians are dedicated to producing good vibes, and good tunes.
“They capture the essence of Steely Dan perfectly in every set, but in a unique, meaningful way,” said April Evans, executive director of Uptown! “Countdown To Ecstasy’s setlist will put audiences into a haze of nostalgic enlightenment.”
Countdown to Ecstasy – A Tribute To Steely Dan’s performance is only the start of all the exciting events scheduled for this February at Uptown! Performing Arts Center. Feel free to check out upcoming performances such as An Evening of Love Songs with The Paul Jost Quartet (Feb. 12), Evvolution: Chosen Dance Company (Feb. 19); Killer Queen (Feb. 25), Magical Mystery Doors (Feb. 26), and much more.
