DOOBIE BROTHERS AND STEELY DAN MAY 11 RALEIGH CONCERT
Doobie Brothers played and played outstanding music and songs everyone knew
and loved -- Michael McDonald was not missed (in my estimation), proving once
again that everyone is indispensible BUT... The HIGHLIGHT of the evening was
Donald Fagen and his musicians -- Of course they played the favorites -- Are there
Steely Dan tunes that are NOT favorites? There was NOT one 'Tired Sea Song'
among the bunch and after watching a LOT of people leave BEFORE the show was
over (in COMPLETE disbelief!), the group finished up and THEN returned to play
Reelin' In the Years -- AWESOME! S.D.'s musicians are TOP FLIGHT and Donald is just
AMAZING -- I guess there are FANS and then there were the rest... Ah well...
Oh... With the number of people under the overhead roof, it could have been HOT
but fans kept a GREAT breeze going - We had GREAT seats!
STEELY DAN AND DOOBIE BROTHERS - PERFECT EXPERIENCE AT TMF
The Dan always leaves fans refreshed and looking forward to the next
concert, and the Doobie Brothers delivered at least as well. What a
perfect combo for a night out under a very comfortable Texas sky.
The Toyota Music Factory is an awesome venue, and we personally
witnessed many fans from far away make the trek into DFW to enjoy
two of the greatest bands of all time. So hard to believe that Becker
has passed on, but as Don Fagen said, "we'll carry on".
Not sure who the bigger fans are nowadays as 30 something children
enjoyed as much as the parents at our house, and the burger at the
Yard House was as good as they come.
Now for the sound quality. Great acoustics right off the bat. The
Doobie Brothers started off just a slight bit too loud, but that was
quickly adjusted, and the weather for the lawn was totally perfect,
especially after the sunset.
The Music Factory personnel were attentive and helpful, so the whole
experience gets an A+ from my crew. LOVE AND AWESOMENESS!
The Doobie Brothers started promptly st 7:30 and
As anticipated ROCKED the house. An 80 minute set
included all of their Top 40 hits with the exception of
Michael McDonald tunes ( The DID play “Takin’ It To
The Streets )”). The crowd was enthusiastic and by the
closing number everyone was on their feet.
Steely Dan was incredible, as usual. Although I am
jaded ( this was my 16th time seeing them ) their
performance was near flawless. Both bands are have
members near 70 years old! Geriatric Rocking is NOT
DONE IN CHAIRS!
I feel bad for people dissappointed by Doobie
Brothers or Steely Dan because I thought they were
both freaking awesome. Doobies always deliver.
Fagen brought good energy post Walter. Donald
moves around like a blind guy (no disrespect) for
years, and has an increasing east coast twang in his
voice that they seemed to soften with mixing. But
who cares? Donald is the greatest talent, his music is
beautifully complex and unique, and he rocked the
house. Mountaintop! I feel cleansed until next time. If
you like the Dan, do not stay away due to some luke
warm reviews. In Seattle this summer, check out
Nearly Dan at Jazz Alley four nights in July. Don't
snear. ND is electric because they spin Donald's
music so well. This music of Steely Dan is the best
music and it's live.
Doobies blew the place away. All voices are still in tact . GREAT SHOW. How can
Steely Dan possibly follow this.
Just like they did ! Fagan, without Becker, still fabulous. I had almost forgotten the
excellence of the music and the musicians that Fagan assembles for both the studio
sessions and the touring shows. At 73, I was on my feet and rocking my butt off
throughout both performances. I'd go again next year (if they come around) in a
The Doobie Bros were great! Steely Dan was
fantastic! I am more of a fam of Steely Dan,
too! When Steely Dan came on i felt like i
was transported to NYC or LA! So perfect!
The sounf, the weather, amazing!
