About the Doobie Brothers
What began as a free-wheeling Northern California band whose biggest followers were the Hell’s Angels became a polished group of recording artists eventually earning numerous Top 10 hits and a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1980 for “What a Fool Believes.”
Today the group consists of founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, and 30 year-plus veterans John McFee and Michael Hossack. The group will perform classic hits like “Long Train Runnin,’” “China Grove,” “Listen to the Music,” “Black Water,” “Takin’ it to the Streets,” “It Keeps You Runnin,’” “You Belong to Me,” and others as well as hits from their 2010 CD “World Gone Crazy” which includes collaborations with Willie Nelson and former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald.
