Event Details

The man with one of the most recognizable voices in the world is coming to the island! Michael McDonald’s soulful sound stands out anywhere; whether it be on his solo hits, those with his two famous bands or as a session musician. McDonald grew up in Missouri, playing in local bands before he moved out to Los Angeles in the early 1970s. In 1974 he became a member of Steely Dan and after that joined the Doobie Brothers. As a singer, keyboardist, and composer he contributed to such classic hits as Takin’ It To The Streets, It Keeps You Runnin’, and What A Fool Believes. During the ‘80s and ‘90s, his solo career knew successes like Sweet Freedom and two legendary duets: On My Own with Patti LaBelle and Yah Mo B There with James Ingram. McDonald’s distinct vocal style made him one of the most sought-after session musicians, contributing to records by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Elton John, and Toto. He has five Grammys to his name; his latest album Wide Open was released in 2017.
