The Doobie Brothers / ZZ Top – Woodinville WA : August 25th 2017

Great show last night at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery in Woodinville. It was a great line-up with The Doobie Brothers and ZZ Top. I have seen ZZ Top a number of times and they never fail to put on a great show, but I have never seen The Doobie Brothers and was very much looking forward to hearing and seeing live performances of all those great old songs I grew up with in the 70’s.

The Doobie Brothers had a great set of songs and sounded great. Although there are only two original members of the band (Patrick Simmons and Tommy Johnston) they had a great group of backing musicians and were able to hit the sound I remember from all those years ago. Some of my favorites of the night were their opening song, Jesus is Just Alright and then Rocking’ Down the Highway. Of course Take me in Your Arms (Rock me A Little While), South City Midnight Lady, Takin’ it to the Streets and China Grove were awesome as well. They closed their set with two encore songs, Without You and Listen to the Music. My all time favorite Doobies song is of course Black Water, and they did an absolutely incredible job and I absolutely loved it!

ZZ Top came on the stage around 8:30 opening up with Got Me Under Pressure, Waiting’ for the Bus and Jesus Just Left Chicago… They sounded as good as even and put on a great show.
