The Doobie Brothers have long been one of my favorite bands and I was grateful for the opportunity to see them again at the Wharf at Gulf Shores on the evening of July 19. It had been a very stormy morning and I worried that the concert might be a little soggy. But the evening turned out to be a beutiful, warm and humid, but ok for an outdoor concert in the evening.
"Jesus is just alright with me"is one of my favorite Doobie songs and I carried Dashboard Jesus into the concert to take his picture during that song (Call me sentimental). Imagine my delight when they opened their set with that perenniel favoerite. The response of the people around me to my whipping out my plastic Jesus to take his picture with Doobies was great. Once again, DBJ evangelizes. (You can see the picture on his blog).
The Doobie Brothers sounded great for a bunch of geriatric guys. They played all my favorites: Takin it to the streets, Black Water, China Grove, Listen to the Music.
I was not nearly as excited about seeing Peter Frampton as I was baout seeing the Doobie Brothers, but he was enjoyable too! All-in-all a gereat way to spend a summer evening at the Beach.
