The Doobie Brothers World Gone Crazy

Updated on September 22, 2010

The Doobie Brothers a band of my youth.

I admit I grew up during the 70’s; it wasn’t such a bad time to be raised really. We saw the end of the Vietnam war, Richard Nixon insisted he wasn’t a crook, we celebrated our nation’s bicentennial year, Reverend Jim Jones taught us not to drink the punch, and the music was seriously rock and roll. One of the greatest memories I have of the 70’s is “rockin’ down the highway” with The Doobie Brothers.

The Doobie Brothers at Pechanga Resort

Recently  I experienced a total blast from the past when I went to the Doobie Brothers concert which was at Pechanga Resort in Temecula, California. Pechanga is an awesome venue for a concert because every seat in the house is great. We rocked out to the Doobie Brother for over two hours as they entertained us with music from their past, as well as, features from their upcoming release, World Gone Crazy.

The Doobie Brothers World Gone Crazy

The Doobie Brothers rocked the house.

The concert began with their hit, "Rockin Down the Highway" and ended after two encores with the classic, "Listen to the Music" with us all singing along.

On stage the Doobie Brothers blasted music with their signature double sets of drums, keyboards, saxophone, and guitars as they played an eclectic mix of rock, blues, and R&B to a sold out crowd. The energy filled the room as the Doobie Brothers broke into the classic version of "Black Water"and the crowd erupted as they broke out the fiddle which is part of the rendition. We literally got to hear “some funky Dixie land and dance the honky- tonk.” The Doobie Brothers rocked the favorites like, "China Grove" and "Long Train Runnin", while introducing new songs like their upcoming single, "Nobody".

Looking good, sounding great, the Doobie Brothers are classic rock and roll.

Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons were is classic form.

Tom Johnston brought the crowd to their feet when the Doobie Brothers broke into "Jesus Is Just Alright".  Clapping and singing along to the rock gospel sound that gave us all 70’s flashbacks, they sounded just as great as they did 30 years ago. 


From the acoustical melodies like "South City Midnight Lady", to the jazz rifts of "Minute by Minute", the Doobie Brothers dazzled the crowd even without the vocals of Michael McDonald.  Pat Simmons entertained us with his funny antidotes and his solo guitar riffs, as he rocked the long hair of the 70’s in classic rock and roll style.

      miss_jkim- It is totally cool to see the 70's bands back in action. My husband and I got to see the Eagles just recently, and now The Doobie Brothers. The concert was great! Watch for their new release, World Gone Crazy. They did a few songs from it at the concert and we loved them.

      It’s so great to see all the 70's bands hitting the road again. I was able to take in a Peter Frampton concert not long ago and wrote a hub about my experience. I envy you a bit, but maybe the Doobie Brothers will make a stop somewhere here in the Deep South.

      Thanks for sharing.
