The Doobie Brothers

Posted by West Columbia Gorge Chamber on Wednesday, June 3, 2015

The Doobie Brothers will be performing at McMenamins Historic Edgefield on June 20th, 2015. If you’re a huge Doobie fan and you’re not able to get tickets then you could always listen from the Donald L. Robertson City Park located right next to Troutdale’s Edgefield. Learn about The Doobie Brother and their music below.

THE DOOBIE BROTHERS: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL INSTITUTION
As durable as American steel, Northern California’s four-time Grammy winning Doobie Brothers sound has become part of America’s musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on “American Idol,” and a fixture on radio formats from top 40 to classic rock. They continue to write and record new material, tour the world, boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, all while breaking new creative ground in the exploration of their musical connection with Nashville.

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Pat Simmons says, “We have entered a territory that we never imagined for ourselves, as far as being a part of the cultural landscape. It’s kind of odd when you see your songs in television commercials and hear yourself as background music in a commercial business, but it’s cool. I hear B.B. King in the same places. We’re in good company”

The Doobies have rung up a glittering track record that would be the envy of any band. Beginning with their multi-million-selling sophomore collection Toulouse Street (1972), the Doobies have 3 multi-platinum, 7 platinum and 14 Gold albums. Their Best of the Doobies (1976) has sold more than 11 million copies – a rare “diamond record.” The Doobies propulsive roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven style has sold more than 30 million albums.
