Doobie Brothers - 2006

The "dictionary definitions" below represent some of the ways we've heard people try to describe our music, and show some pretty good reasons why someone once said simply - "listen to the music." It's hard for us as the Doobie Brothers to define our music, and as a matter of fact one of the things that has kept the band going through the years is an approach that isn't self-limited stylistically.

Doobie Brothers n. ['Hind. dub; Sans. durva, a kind of pasture grass; L. frater; G. bruder, Sans. bhratar; AS. brothor, male sibling']

  1. Music group known for blues based songs with a rock edge, often with lush vocal harmonies (see also rock 'n' soul).
  2. Assemblage of musicians specializing in country based rock featuring instrumentation such as violin and finger-picked acoustic guitar combined with electrical instruments and drums.
  3. Musical entity recognized for incorporating sophisticated jazz stylings into "popular hit" songs.
  4. "Rock" band, origins circa 1970, with reputation for exciting live performances and skillful musicianship.


We feel fortunate to have had solid support from the listening public for our efforts with 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.

Along the way we've also been blessed to have accumulated multiple Grammy awards, numerous gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums (and now a "Diamond" record!!) and a lot of great times together. Many thanks to all the listeners who've helped us to keep making music!!
