About Us



 There is nothing else like the music of Steely Dan. With more than 40 years of worldwide acclaim and 30 million album sales, the Grammy award-winning 2001 Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees remain one of pop music’s most popular and highly regarded acts.

 Blending elements of rock, jazz, funk, R&B and pop with complex jazz-influenced structures and harmonies, their songwriting, musicianship and unique charisma are unparalleled.

 Cleveland-based FM Project plays the music of Steely Dan. Since forming in 2012, the 9-piece FM Project has packed Northeast Ohio venues with an instantly recognizable and admired song list, and high-energy, spot-on performances from some of  Northeast Ohio’s most accomplished and seasoned musicians.

From timeless Top-40 hits like Reelin’ In The Years, My Old School, Josie, Do It Again and Peg to an array of deeper cuts pulled from the band’s seven albums, The FM Project plays your favorite Steely Dan songs  – and plays them with passion, joy, precision, and ultimate professionalism.

 From the first note of every performance, The FM Project gets crowds singing along, dancing to the music, and grooving to a unique musical experience. Throughout The FM Project’s history, the band sells out music clubs throughout Northeast Ohio, playing small stages and large venues, including the Akron Civic Theater, Music Box Supper Club, Cain Park, Hessler Street Fair, Beachland, Brothers Lounge, Valenti’s, Rick’s Café, the Euclid Tavern, and civic festivals. The FM Project is also ideally suited to corporate events and private parties.
