Show Biz Kids
came to life in 2014 and is a world-class, twelve-piece Steely Dan tribute. This award-winning Tampa-based group of renowned studio and touring veterans combines meticulous, spot-on arrangements with stunning vocal and instrumental performances - bringing Steely Dan’s hits to life with the vibrancy and immediacy of a front row experience in a major arena. Close your eyes and you'll swear you are hearing the real thing!
Led by keyboardist Phil Magallanes (noted for his work with Arturo Sandoval, Blood Sweat & Tears, Engelbert Humperdinck, Debbie Gibson and Spyro Gyra, among others), the collective resume of Show Biz Kids' members includes countless tours and recordings with Diane Schuur, Barry Manilow, "Bootsy" Collins, Tom Jones, Larry Carlton, Bobby Caldwell, Gloria Estefan, "Doc" Severinson, Tower Of Power, and a host of others.
Show Biz Kids won Creative Loafing's Best Of The Bay Award for Best Tribute Band in 2016 and has played sold-out performances at Ringside Cafe, Skipper's Smokehouse, The Palladium and Clearwater Jazz Holiday. It is simply in a class by itself among tribute bands and is a “must see” for all Steely Dan fans.
