May brings us to the cusp of summer, and nothing feels more like summertime in the Midwest than the Doobie Brothers live!
The Doobies are an icon of the California Sound of the 1970s, characterized by thick vocal harmonies and a unique combination of folk-style fingerpicking and rough-hewn rock licks. Through that decade they cross-pollinated with Steely Dan, bringing aboard Skunk Baxter, and later Michael McDonald, and redefined blue-eyed soul. Their music is joyful, and musical, and a ton of fun.
The edginess and country flavor of the early years and the big band spectacle of the later years appeals to everyone in some way - and we're no different. If Minute By Minute doesn't have any special memories for you, Black Water probably does.
Double drum kits and percussion, multiple guitars and keys, and a big heap of harmony vocals, horns AND strings means it'll be another Trib show to remember, and we'll bring the horses to deliver - so don't miss it!
