What an amazing show this was!! I havent listened to The Doobie Brothers or The Allman Brothers extensively, but was very impressed by both of their performances.
The Doobies took the stage around 7 PM. The Greek was near empty. I was shocked by the lack of people in attendance. By the end of their set, the place began to fill up, and people started rocking out.
By the time The Allman Brothers went on, the Greek was bumping. I honestly had no idea what to expect. They jammed the night away and brought a trippy visual display.
Highlights from their set included:
1) Bruce Willis playing the Harmonica
2) Benmont Tench rocking out the key board for a few songs
3) Mike Campbell jamming with the band.
4) Tom Petty singing Highway 61
I am not 100% sold on catching The Doobie Brothers again, but The Allman Brothers are a must.-lorn
