Fans of the jazz-tinged rock of Steely Dan and the funk/pop of Earth, Wind and Fire, and Kool & The Gang will want to be at McKelligon Canyon Amphitheater this Thursday, July 14.

Hypnosis, “El Paso's Most Dangerous Band,” will be filling the canyon with the signature sounds of those best-selling and influential groups of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Hypnosis, "El Paso's Most Dangerous Band," also goes by ShoBizKidz as a nod to the rock band Steely Dan whose music they cover in a tribute set during live performances.

The band has grown over the years to include a horn section, and recently-added female backup singers, according to lead vocalist Oscar Ayala.

Ayala tells me they will start Thursday night’s show as their alter ego ShoBizKidz with a one-hour Tribute to Steely Dan, then will return after intermission “with The Dance Show featuring an Earth, Wind and Fire/Kool and the Gang Grand Finale.”
