Following a recent announcement by the International Entertainment Buyers Association, the Doobie Brothers will this year be inducted into the association’s hall of fame at their annual conference. The honorable induction recognizes people responsible for tremendous contributions to entertainment, precisely live-entertainment. The band’s producer, Bruce Cohn will not be left behind either during this glorious occasion and will also be inducted alongside the band. Cohn cited that the induction is such an honor and expressed his elation at his induction alongside the band.
After 44 years together, the band’s accomplishments cannot be underestimated. It is obvious that there exists a brotherhood that has seen them reach this far. Interestingly, the Doobie Brothers will be the first rock band to have received this enviable recognition. It’s no wonder that they boast a total of four Grammy awards and a record over 48 albums. And it appears that this legendary band is not done yet. What with their collaboration widely acclaimed country artists? And for their all-time loyal fan base, what better news would there be other than news of the inclusion of Michael McDonald in the collaborations? He is a famous former singer and keyboardist and needless to say, the band’s days of glory are far from over. Peter Frampton and Boston also happen to be famous stars set to accompany the Doobie Brothers in their 2014 tour itinerary. Erv Woolsey and Dale Morris, Dick Clark and Lawrence are just but a few past inductees.
It is undeniably true that the Doobie Brothers long but successful journey to fame has culminated into an amazing accomplishment. Romeo Entertainment Group is set to receive the Industry Achievement Award. It is most certainly an event many would die to attend especially those who have grown up listening to the Doobie Brothers and faithfully continue to do so. No one would deny that the Doobie’s good work has finally paid off.
