Who Are We?
Scam is the world's premier Steely Dan tribute band. Playing more than 40
of Steely Dan's masterpieces, The Royal Scam has helped to keep the
compositions of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, the spirit of rock/jazz,
and the enthusiasm of fine musicianship alive in small clubs and concert
venues in the NY metropolitan area.
Interests and Venues
Latin, and Pop are among the major elements which make up Steely Dan's
music. All of the many musicians who work with us from time to time have
played most of these various styles and have contributed some very
memorable musical moments for the band. We are grateful that we have
worked with so many talented performers. In March of 1996, The Royal Scam
was featured in a Star Ledger article about tribute bands and we have
appeared on the cover of Steppin' Out Magazine. We have also appeared on
The Jersey Spotlight television show and a live radio broadcast on WJDN.
We have made appearances at the China Club, Kenny's Castaways, The Shell Theater at Trump Marina, The Bitter
End, Club Bené, The Rock and Roll Cafe, Essex County Summer Concert
Series, Stephen's Talk House, The Berks Jazz Fest (annually), The Scranton Jazz Fest, Bethlehem Musikfest, Trumpets Jazz Club, The Crossroads, The River Street Jazz Cafe, The Historic Blairstown Theater and a host of other clubs which feature
classic rock or tribute shows.
