The 2013 Belleayre Music Festival rocks on as the classic rock icons, The Doobie Brothers take the stage on Saturday, July 20 at 8PM.
The Doobie Brothers are synonymous with the power pop of the 1970s and the band’s classic hits are an integral element of the era’s soundtrack.
Taking the radio waves by storm, the California band racked up a string of gold and platinum albums, along with hit singles like Listen to the Music, Black Water, Jesus is Just Alright and China Grove.
Founding members guitarist/vocalist Tom Johnston and guitarist Patrick Simmons lead the band. The group began its illustrious musical journey in a country-rock band vein, making its first significant impact with its second record, Toulouse Street. Driven by the singles, Listen to the Music and Jesus Is Just Alright, the band was quickly vaulted into prominence.
The Captain and Me, released in1973, continued the momentum, producing Top Ten hits Long Train Runnin’ and China Grove.
The Doobies’ appeal took another leap forward with the release of What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits, which launched their first number one single, Black Water.
The addition of former Steely Dan affiliates Jeff “Skunk” Baxter and Michael McDonald took the band in a different direction.
The new sound was showcased on the platinum-selling Takin’ It to the Streets in 1976.
Next came the band’s most successful album, Minute by Minute, which spent five weeks at number one on the strength of the number one single, What a Fool Believes.
The Doobies are renowned for their fantastic live performances and this show promises to be an evening of great fun and high-powered classic hits. Enjoy!
