Few American rock and roll groups have been able to sustain the level of success as The Doobie Brothers- with 2 Grammy’s, 27 chart singles, 16 top 40 hits, 11 multi-platinum albums, 13 Gold albums and The Diamond Award for the sale of 10 million units of a single title “Best of the Doobies Vol. 1,” they have proven they still have what it takes. The Doobies are known for their high energy performances and their diverse blues based rock with an edge. Their style is limitless and ranges from the bluesy rock of “Long Train Runnin’” to the country tinged “Black Water” to the gospel/jazz sounds of “Takin’ It To The Streets.” The Doobies utilize an eclectic assortment of instruments that includes (but is not limited to) the violin, acoustic & electric guitar & drums that bring the Doobie Brothers into their own categorization.
With origins that date back to 1970, the group has been through many transformations but has been able to maintain the true doobie essence that continues to make them so exciting and impressive to listen to. With the sad passing of Keith Knudsen this year, the original voices and sound of Tom Johnston & Pat Simmons, will be joined by the newest addition to the Doobies- Ed Toth to play drums alongside Mike Hossack. Ed is known for his fantastic work with Vertical Horizon and will complement the group naturally keeping the signature double drummer sound in tact. Don’t miss your chance to see one of Americas most loved rock and roll bands when they stop in at Westbury for one unforgettable night.
