Hall & Oates @ 1STBANK Center | 3/3/14
With no opening act, Daryl Hall and John Oates took the stage with their six backing musicians. Parts of this band have been together for a long time, including sax player Charles DeChant and veteran studio and touring guitarist Paul Pesco.
It would be difficult to identify any high point in the show -- it was like a greatest-hits record come to life. And they changed many of the songs enough to keep things interesting for the audience and for themselves. Things kicked off with the 1982 hit "Maneater." It was a striking reminder of the way Hall & Oates really synthesized jazz and R&B and rock without subsuming the virtues of any of those musical forms.More »
