Review: The Doobie Brothers fantastic at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater

On August 29, The Doobie Brothers performed at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, as part of Gregg Allman’s Laid Back Festival.
As The Doobie Brothers took the Jones Beach stage, they were greeted with a warm standing ovation from the Long Island audience. They began their set with the infectious “Jesus Is Just Alright,” where Patrick Simmons sang lead vocals, as the stage was graced in orange lights. They were able to get the crowd on their feet on “Rockin’ Down the Highway” and “Dependin’ On You” featured saxophone instrumentation from Marc Russo

LISTEN TO THE MUSIC: The Doobie Brothers play at CMAC


Just about everybody can sing along with the classic rock staple “Black Water,” a Patrick Simmons-penned tune that’s just one of the Doobie Brothers’ catalog of hits: “Listen to the Music,” “Jesus is Just Alright,” “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “China Grove,” “What a Fool Believes” and many more.

The Doobie Brothers played Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC) Friday night — and for Doobies co-founder Simmons, it was something of a family affair, as his son Patrick Williams Jr. performed the opening set (and was joined by his dad on the CMAC stage).

The CMAC summer season is winding down, with just two shows left on the concert calendar: Idina Menzel on Aug. 30, and Dierks Bentley (with Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith) on Sept. 3. For ticket information, see

The Doobie Brothers entertain sold out crowd at MSP

The Doobie Brothers rocked a sold-out crowd at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Saturday night with a nice mixture of hits and album tracks highlighting its early-‘70s material.

Fronted by co-founding members Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons, the 2015 incarnation of the band is an eight piece, complete with two drummers and a saxophone player.

The band took the stage with “Jesus Is Just Alright,” the band’s 1972 revival of a 1966 gospel tune by The Art Reynolds Singers (also recorded by The Byrds in 1969), treating the Keystone Grand Ballroom audience to some terrific five-part harmonies.



The Doobie Brothers Join Forces with the Love Hope Strength Foundation


Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF), the world’s leading rock and roll foundation, is proud to announce a new programmatic partnership with the iconic rock band The Doobie Brothers. LHSF will be onsite at select summer shows helping concert goers to Get on the List during their 2015 national tour.

“I am so excited for The Doobie Brothers to be a part of Love Hope Strength,” said Doobie Brothers founder Tom Johnston. “Their Get On The List campaign will be added to our tour starting in August. I can’t wait for us to join with our fans to register and see how many lifesaving matches we can get.”

LHSF gives fans the opportunity to sign up for the national marrow registry at no cost by simply completing a one page consent form and swabbing their cheeks with large Q tips to obtain a DNA sample. There are currently thousands of people with blood cancers in need of finding a match to receive a lifesaving transplant.

Guitarist Pat Simmons said, “Love Hope Strength hits home for me personally because my son is a cancer survivor. What they do to help save lives is incredible and I couldn’t think of a better charity for us to partner with.”

LHSF CEO Chris Brewer added, “This is another great example of the power of the music industry to make a real difference in the fight against cancer. We’re able to leverage the amazing rapport The Doobie Brothers have with their fans and offer them the opportunity to potentially save a life. We couldn’t be prouder of this partnership.”

LHSF will join the tour starting August 1, more information can be found at
