Since releasing their self-titled debut album in 1971, The Doobie Brothers have continued to write, record and perform, developing a loyal fan base that today spans generations.
Described as an American band, they cover everything from blues, R&B and country to bluegrass and rock ‘n roll. While the band has stayed fresh and unpredictable over the years, they have also remained true to their deep American musical roots. Their multi-layered signature sound weaves in sweet three-part harmonies and rootsy, introspective, acoustic flavors.
The Doobie Brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004, have won four Grammy Awards and selling more than 48 million records worldwide (including three multi-platinum, seven platinum and 14 gold albums).
Their No. 1 gold-certified singles “Black Water” and “What a Fool Believes” lead a deep catalog of hits including “Listen to the Music,” “Jesus Is Just All Right,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove,” “Take Me In Your Arms,” “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “You Belong to Me” and “The Doctor.” In all, The Doobies have tallied five Top 10 singles and 16 Top 40 hits.
Known for their dynamic live performances, the band plays close to 100 shows a year, touring worldwide and delighting concertgoers of all ages.
