Cleveland, OH - The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame welcomes fans of Inductees The Doobie Brothers to the museum for a Fan Day on September 10th. The celebration coincides with the band’s tour stop in Cleveland, appearing Thursday night at Blossom Music Center.
The Doobie Brothers have been a mainstay in the rock & roll landscape for nearly five decades. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2020.
Memorable artifacts will be on display in the museum’s Hall of Fame Gallery until it closes in October. Items include Tom Johnston’s 1970 Gibson SG Special guitar used on early gigs and jam sessions, Patrick Simmons’ suit worn at the first Knebworth Festival in 1974, Michael McDonald’s gear used while recording “Minute by Minute” and “What a Fool Believes,” and John McFee’s acoustic-electric violin used onstage, including during the 1982 Farewell Tour.
You can also stop by the Rock Hall’s interactive exhibit, The Garage, to pick up an instrument – drums, guitars, bass, keyboards - and play or sing The Doobie Brothers songs in the jam room.
On your way down to the Rock Hall, make sure to listen as The Doobie Brothers music will be played on the Rock Hall’s Rock Boxes located downtown along East 9th Street.
