In the 1970s, Steely Dan released a string of platinum albums that contained such enduring FM radio favorites as "Hey Nineteen," "Deacon Blues," "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," "Reelin' in the Years" and "Peg." The 1977 Steely Dan album "Aja" appears on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
After a long lay-off, the band's principals, keyboardist/singer Donald Fagen and guitarist Walter Becker, reunited for 2000's Grammy-winning album "Two Against Nature." Another new album, "Everything Must Go," followed in 2003.
Steely Dan performed at the UNO Lakefront Arena in 2014, and at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2016.
Becker died in September 2017 at age 67, but Fagen has elected to continue under the Steely Dan banner.
The Doobie Brothers also enjoyed their commercial heyday in the 1970s. The multi-platinum "Toulouse Street" album in 1972 set the stage for a long string of hits, including “Black Water,” “Listen To The Music,” “Jesus Is Just All Right,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “China Grove,” “Takin’ it to the Streets” and “What a Fool Believes."
The Doobie Brothers co-headlined Champions Square with Peter Frampton in July 2014.
