The Doobie Brothers
April 14 @ 7:00 pm
The Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences is excited to announce the return of the Doobie Brothers to the Maier Foundation Performance Hall on Sunday, April 14th at 7:00PM. Born out of Northern California’s chaotic, late-1960s musical stew, The Doobie Brothers ’rugged, real and authentic approach to rock and roll made them biker bar stalwarts. But their self-titled debut album in ’71 went beyond just leather and motorcycles, revealing even more musical layers; sweet three-part harmonies and rootsy, introspective, acoustic flavors. The Doobie Brothers ‘legacy has been built upon not just hit records, but also an unrivaled commitment to musical integrity and a steadfast allegiance to their enthusiastic fan base. The bands ability to evolve in a constantly changing industry and connections to generations of listening audiences is a testament to their craft.
The collaborative, almost communal sense of family within the band allowed them to stay fresh and unpredictable over the years, while never forsaking their deep American musical roots, boogie-jams and all. The Doobie Brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004, have won four GRAMMY® Awards and sold more than 48 million records worldwide (including three multi-platinum, seven platinum, and 14 gold albums). Their 1976 Best of the Dubieties sold more than 12 million copies, earning rare RIAA Diamond status.
