In May 2008, Daryl Hall and John Oates took the stage together at Los Angeles’ legendary Troubadour Theater – their first time playing at the venue in 35 years. The resulting performance is captured in Daryl Hall and John Oates – Live at the Troubadour, which features such unforgettable hits such as “Man-eater,” “Private Eyes,” “Rich Girl,” “Kiss On My List,” “She’s Gone,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” and their Grammy-nominated single “Sara Smile.”
“John and I have a lot of great memories associated with performing at the Troubadour, since it was our first show in L.A.,” said Daryl. “It’s like going back to where it all began for us. We’ve always had an enthusiastic following in Los Angeles, and this is a chance for our fans to see us up close and personal in an intimate setting.”
In Daryl Hall and John Oates – Live at the Troubadour, Daryl Hall and John Oates perform along with their back-up band comprised of longtime member T-Bone Wolk on guitar and vocals; Mike Braun on drums; Charles DeChant on sax, keys and vocals; Eliot Lewis on keys and vocals; Zev Katz on bass; and Everett Bradley on percussion and vocals.
Daryl Hall and John Oates began their music career in the early ’70s, and since then they have produced six number-one singles and five Top 10 singles from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums, including Bigger Than Both of Us (1976); Voices (1980); Private Eyes (1981); H2O (1982); Rock N Soul, Part I (1983); and Big Bam Boom (1984). They have been recognized by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the number-one selling duo in music history.
