Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers Reviews

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!

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 heartbeat !
