MARCH 26, 2015 (Nashville, TN) – The Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston, Casey James, Charlie Worsham, and John Cowan brought their respective sounds to 3rd & Lindsley during this week’s 23rd Annual Tin Pan South.

The evening showcase, presented by BMI, was reunion of sorts for the four musicians. James and Worsham are both featured on The Doobie Brother’s latest collaborative album, Southbound, while Cowan has spent the past five years as a bassist and background vocalist for The Doobie Brothers.

Johnston will join NSAI Executive Director Bart Herbison for the closing session of the sold-out NSAI Spring Training, at a panel event this Saturday, March 28. Tin Pan South is presented by Regions Bank.

Best Fall Festival Yet
B.R. Cohn Charity Events
CHICAGO — America – October 2
OCTOBER 2-4 Field of Dreams
Sonoma, CA. – Bruce Cohn of B.R. Cohn Charity Events (BRCCE) announced today tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 20 for the 2015 Sonoma Music Festival, October 2-4 at the Field of Dreams near downtown Sonoma. Appearing at the successor to his fabled 28-year winery fall festival are Chicago and America on Friday evening Oct 2 doors at 4pm; Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band with Pablo Cruise Saturday afternoon and evening October 3 doors at 4pm; and the Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman, the Edgar Winter Band, Tommy Castro and others Sunday afternoon October 4 doors at 11am. Tickets and information are available at or tel:+1-888-810-2063.

Tickets will range from VIP experiences starting at $1000 and $350 to $219 gold circle (Fri/Sat) and $119 and $89 general admission seated tickets for all days. A limited amount of $47 local Sonoma tickets for standing room only will be available in person with locations announced soon. Special ticket packages including 3-day tickets and limo packages will also be available thru the website.

The Sonoma Music Festival was born from the desire of BRCCE to change up its annual fall event formerly at B.R. Cohn Winery and move it closer to town for a more community event. The new Field of Dreams location not only puts the concert goer two blocks from Sonoma’s Plaza, it allows the festival the opportunity to grow and generate more proceeds for charity. This year’s beneficiaries include national and local veterans organizations including Fisher House and American Legion Post 489, the Redwood Food Bank, Bread and Roses and others to be announced. Over its 28-year history BRCCE has raised over 6.5 million dollars for charity.

“This is a very impressive 3-day line-up” exclaimed Bruce Cohn. “Not only do we get to finally present a Beatle, but all of these great acts are a perfect fit for Sonoma and wine country. Come up to stay, shop and enjoy this great music filled fundraising weekend.”

Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era” by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at #13, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s list of Top 100 artists of all time. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six decades. Lifetime achievements include a Grammy Award, multiple American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of US cities. Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 36 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards.

As one of the two surviving Beatles, arguably rocks most popular bands ever, Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band brings a hit filled show to Sonoma. Not only does he cover popular Ringo Beatle numbers, but songs from his illustrious solo career as well. And if that’s not enough his All-Starr band includes Todd Rundgren, Steve Lukather from Toto, Gregg Rolie formerly lead singer of Santana, Richard Page, Gregg Bissonette and Warren Ham. This is one hit filled show.

Formed in 1969 by Simmons, Johnston, founding drummer John Hartman, and bassist Dave Shogren, The Doobie Brothers made their mark with a run of punchy, melodic hits on Warner Bros. Records. They attained radio ubiquity in the late ‘70s, when the group’s expanded lineup was augmented by Michael McDonald, whose soaring lead vocals pushed the band to new commercial and critical heights. The band took a five year respite before regrouping in 1987 for a series of gigs benefiting veterans’ groups and children’s charities (ultimately raising over $3 million). Inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004, The Doobie Brothers have won four GRAMMY® Awards and sold more than 45 million records worldwide (including three multi-platinum, seven platinum, and 14 gold albums).

Gregg Allman is one of rock’s most acclaimed and beloved stars, possessing a distinctively soulful voice and singular songwriting ability that resonates through a musical career that spans nearly half a century. Gregg, along with the Allman Brothers Band, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1995. At the 54th Annual Grammy Awards in 2012, the group was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. That same year, Allman’s critically acclaimed tell-all memoir, My Cross to Bear, spent several weeks as a New York Times Bestseller.

The Field of Dreams set-up, while different than the winery set-up, still allows in the BRCCE tradition, great sight lines and access no more than 150 feet from the stage. With the newly added night time headliners, video and projection screens will make sure you don’t miss a thing happening on stage. These are rain or shine shows.

Plans call for the best music, food and wine Sonoma has to offer. Many of the regions finest purveyors are joining in, including Laugunitas Brewing, a pop-up HopMonk beer garden, high-end and popular restaurants and of course some of the best wine in California including B.R. Cohn and many others. There will be no in and out privileges.

Because of the new location, visitors are only 45 minutes from San Francisco, and one hour from Sacramento. Locals are encouraged to walk, ride a bike or car-pool. VIP, motorcycle and bicycle parking near the venue will be available and there is plenty of parking surrounding the venue in Sonoma. Check in with the festival website for maps etc.

Event sponsors and partners include: Sonnen BMW, the Lise Sonnen Fund, KFOG 104.5/99.7, 107.7 The Bone, KOIT 96.5, the River 97.7, The KRUSH 95.9, The Eagle, the City of Sonoma, Lagunitas Brewery, Ramekins, HopMonk Tavern, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sonoma County Tourism, Sonoma Index-Tribune, Sonoma Chevrolet, The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, The Flamingo Conference and Resort, the County of Sonoma and American Storage/Global Containers.

MARCH 17, 2015 (Nashville, TN) – Rock legends and GRAMMY® Award winners The Doobie Brothers and Gregg Allman have added a run of late summer 2015 co-headlining dates, beginning August 19, in Boston, MA, and concluding in September.

“We’ve played shows with Gregg and The Allman Brothers over the years, starting in 1974,“ The Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston recalls.” It’s always been something I’ve looked forward to and enjoyed for the high energy and soulful experience that it is!”

Patrick Simmons agrees, “Gregg Allman is a national treasure, and it’s such a pleasure to be doing shows with one of our oldest friends. Not only is Gregg one of the finest musicians you could ever hope to hear, he is also one of the nicest people I know. His music, as well as ours, was born out of that great blues tradition, so I think this show is going to be a treat for you blues freaks! We’re so looking forward to these gigs, and I know there’s bound to be some jammin’ going on at some point.”

“I’ve loved The Doobie Brothers since I can remember,” says Gregg Allman. “Those guys can play! And I love their songs — so many classics. I’m honored to tour with my old pals. We always have a good ol’ time.”

Gregg Allman is one of rock music’s most acclaimed and beloved stars, possessing a distinctively soulful voice and singular songwriting ability that resonates through a musical career spanning nearly half a century. Gregg, along with the Allman Brothers Band, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. At the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, the group was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Earlier this year, Allman released the critically acclaimed All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman, which captured a multi-generational assortment of musicians from the worlds of rock, blues and country, for a once-in-a-lifetime performance paying tribute to Allman’s life and music.

The Doobie Brothers have been delivering mind-blowing, roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll for over four decades, selling more than 48 million albums and winning four GRAMMY® Awards. Their latest album, Southbound, was released November 2014 and features new recordings of the band’s biggest hits, with accompaniment from some of country music’s biggest stars (including Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, and Brad Paisley, among others). The Doobie Brothers recently launched their “Takin’ It To the Streets Concert Club”. Members of the new concert club have advance access to ticket pre-sales (including reserved seating options), as well as exclusive merch and meet & greet opportunities.
