Four decades of music from legendary trio delights Deni Blues & Roots crowd.SHAUN CONNOR April 22, 2014 3:10am
The in-sync melody of their voices echoed throughout the festival grounds, making a cold night bearable for fans who couldn’t believe The Doobie Brothers were performing in their home town.
From the moment the band’s name was revealed on the stage banner, people flocked to secure their places for the powerhouse trio – Pat Simmons, Tom Johnston and John McFee.
Simmons said the Deni Blues & Roots Festival had seen ‘‘a wonderful day of music’’, and they were the ideal act to top off what was an iconic weekend for Deniliquin.
‘‘How are we all doing? You’re keeping warm because you’re rockin,’’ they said.
Sounding as good as ever, The Doobie Brothers sang classic tune after tune for their devoted fans.
Highlights included Rockin’ Down the Highway, Dependin’ On You and Jesus Is Just Alright.
They covered ground from their 40 plus years in the music industry, with songs from the 1970s record The Captain and Me.
A Brighter Day and World Gone Crazy were also popular tunes, from their 2010 release of the same name.
The Doobie Brothers took listeners to the beginning of their career in 1969 with just as much enthusiasm and showmanship as ever before.
The trio’s success can be attributed to their talent as much as their passion for delivering to the audience.
