The Doobie Brothers to Play the Orange Bowl Halftime Show, Thursday
Much like the sunny Pacific atmosphere in which they incubated their approach, the Doobies sound washes past you like a cool breeze. That's even as it percolates with hooks and rousing grooves, as best captured on radio staples like "China Grove" and "Black Water." And, though certain key elements from the classic era - Michael McDonald, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter - are long gone, the band has impressively retained longtime core members Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons, John McFee, and Michael Hossack.
Thursday, January 1, as part of the 75th FedEx Orange Bowl halftime show. Dolphin Stadium, 2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens. Game starts at 8 p.m.; tickets cost $110 to $210.
