New Orleans Pelicans: Steely Dan Songs for Each Player

Representing one of the fastest-moving teams in the NBA, the New Orleans Pelicans have spent their 2019-2020 campaign bringing excitement to arenas around the United States and Canada, even though that is currently at a halt.

While the Pelicans are really just starting to build their name as a headlining act at arenas, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, founders of the band Steely Dan, have spent over four decades building their way to top-billing act; the group even headlined the Smoothie King Center in 2018.

Though Becker passed away in late 2017, the exciting and creative group continues to bring their group of talented accompanying musicians on tours around the country, thrilling crowds from New York City to Des Moines.
