Doobie Brothers/Chicago concert

My wife and I are just back from the Saratoga Performing Arts Center where we saw the Doobie Brothers and Chicago in concert. I had a great time - alas it was too loud for Irene - but I do appreciate that she persevered.

The Doobie Brothers opened and did a great set ending with a fantastic jam on Without Love, Chicago followed and after a slow start just got better and better.

Finally for the encore the two bands came out an played together - they opened with the Doobies - Rocking Down the Highway, followed by Chicago's Does anybody Know what time it is, followed by the Doobies Taking It to the Streets, followed by a "just nuts' it was so good version of Chicago's I just Want to be Free Followed by the Doobies Listen to the music and then the close - Chicago's 25 or 6 to 4.

If you don't know how overwhelming an experience that was well you be a kid or actually thought disco was music.

Oh and if you hear that there was a minor quake in the Saratoga Region tonight - not to worry - it was just the big guy doing the happy dance.
