They’re Also Sending A Message of Hope to Everyone
The Doobie Brothers are the latest rock act to add to the string of performances we’ve been seeing online these past few weeks. The band members remain in quarantine and can be seen playing in their own homes. They have virtually come together to take on their 1974 track “Black Water.”
Patrick Simmons said, “We knew we would want to share something with others out there who are in isolation just like we are. We are so grateful to our fans who contributed to the performance and our families who helped with the production.”
He added, “Sending out warm wishes to all of our friends. Thanks to all the angels of mercy who have stepped up to lessen the impact that the Covid-19 virus has had on so many lives. We are partnering with Feeding America for our presentation, and would be thankful to anyone who could make a donation to help our neighbors in need during this crucial time.”
It was supposed to be a busy year for the group. They’re set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on May 2 but the date has now been rescheduled to November 7 because of the coronavirus pandemic. And they’re also slated to kick off their summer tour celebrating their 50th anniversary on June 9 in West Palm Beach, Florida. And although they haven’t postponed anything yet, the dates might also be affected by the current global crisis.
