Rising from the ashes of the magnificent Danny Steel Orchestra
(the fondly remembered 13 piece tribute to Steely Dan) the Doobie Others is
a brand new project playing the very best of the Doobie Brothers , Michael McDonald
and Steely Dan!
Featuring the incredible vocals of Ben Hanshaw (BluesBrothers) and Chris Bright gtr/vocals (Beyond the Groove / Danny Steel Orchestra), the 6 piece Doobie Others offer the very best of the early Doobie Brothers from "Taking It To The Streets", and "Listen To The Music" through "Minute By Minute" and "Long Train Running" to the more McDonald influenced "What A Fool Belivees" etc; The Doobie Brothers delivered songs ranging in style from the bluesy rock of Long Train Runnin' to the country tinged Black Water to the gospel/jazz rooted Takin' It ToThe Streets, and songs that truly defy classification, except to say they were musically superb.
Along the way they have accumulated multiple Grammy awards, numerous gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums (and now a "Diamond" record!!) and defined the a new 70's rock sound before becoming a million selling outfit. Michael McDonald became the band's lead vocalist as well as doubling on keys and synths, and later became a million seller in his own right, but as part of the Doobie Others show, it's his earlier career that is focused on.
The Doobie Others are an assemblage of the very best musicians in Birmingham, and just like their former DSO project bring a blend of classy professionalism and real feel to the music they love and play.
