Doobie Brothers tribute in Wellsboro

This Friday at 7 p.m., the Doobie Brothers tribute band Takin’ it to the Streets will bring their amazing show to the Deane Center for the Performing Arts, 104 Main St., Wellsboro.

“With powerful vocal harmonies and top-notch musicianship, Takin’ it to the Streets recreates the incredible sound and style of the Doobie Brothers covering a catalog of hits from this famed American rock band’s five decades of music,” a news release said.

This tribute band will perform Doobie favorites, such as “Jesus is Just Alright,” “Listen to the Music,” “Long Train Running,” “Real Love,” “What a Fool Believes,” and “Black Water,” the Doobies’ first No. 1 single from 1974.

The Doobies’ greatest success, the news release said, was in the 1970s. Tom Johnston was lead vocalist from 1970 to 1975, when they featured a mainstream rock sound mixed with elements of folk, country and R&B. Michael McDonald joined the band in 1975 as a keyboard player and second lead vocalist. His interest in soul music introduced a new sound. Before Johnston retired in 1977, he and McDonald performed together as co-lead vocalists for one album, “Takin’ It to the Streets.”

The band has released fourteen studio albums including six top-ten appearances on the Billboard 200 album chart, six live albums and numerous greatest hits compilations and sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.
