MOCA; The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami is thrilled to present Dirty Works, a Steely Dan tribute band, as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. Dirty Works is led by bassist James McCoy along with saxophonist/vocalist Greg Diaz, pianists Pete Wallace and David Siegel, guitarist Lindsay Blair and other outstanding musicians.

Blending rock, jazz, traditional pop, R&B and sophisticated studio production with cryptic and ironic lyrics, Dirty Works faithfully recreates the music of Steely Dan to entertain audiences throughout South Florida. Steely Dan, made up of Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, is an American Rock Band who helped define the soundtrack of the 1970s. Steely Dan is best known for its seventh studio album, Gaucho, that was released in 1980 by MCA Records. The recording sessions for Gaucho represents Steely Dan’s meticulous recording techniques and quest for perfection. The band spent over a year in the studio to record the album with 42 different musicians and far exceeded the original monetary advance allotted by the record label. Jazz at MOCA attendees can expect to hear all their old favorites including songs from the album Gaucho, such as Peg, Rikki Don’t Lose that Number, Reelin’ in the Years, Bodhisattva, Deacon Blues, Babylon Sister and more top hits. The public is invited to dance under the stars to the sounds of Dirty Works, rain or shine.
