The Dukes of September is an American supergroup, formed in 2010 featuring Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs. The project is a resurrection of the previous New York Rock and Soul Revue which featured the same three musicians and played a combination of hits from the members respective careers as well as a wide variety of covers.

Background

Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald began working together in the mid-1970s when McDonald would collaborate with Steely Dan, singing and playing keyboards on a lot of their material. The two worked together again during the early 1990s in the short lived New York Rock and Soul Revue which also included Boz Scaggs, Phoebe Snow, Eddie Brigati, David Brigati, Charles Brown, Walter Becker, Cornelius Bumpus and Mindy Jostyn.[1]

In 2010 it was announced that Fagen, McDonald and Scaggs would do a fall tour together as the Dukes of September. The band is rounded out by Michael Leonhart (horns), Walt Weiskopf (horns), Carolyn Escoffery (vocals) and Catherine Russell (vocals).[2]

The tour kicked off on August 19, 2010, in Danbury, Connecticut. The band played a collection of hits from the members' careers as well as a wide variety of covers, notably three Band covers in a row.[1]

On June 14, 2012, the band performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote their 2012 summer concert tour.
