Michael McDonald has one of the most distinctive and soulful voices of our time. Add to that his formidable songwriting and keyboard skills and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From ‘70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time Grammy Award-winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving.

Boz Scaggs’ career dates back to the late ‘60’s with the Steve Miller Band, then continued with successful solo albums such as 1976’s Silk Degrees (featuring the smash hit singles “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle”) and Middle Man (1980). His late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001) continue to showcase Scaggs’ deft touch as a singer. He brings a sly drawl to a funky workout like Li’l Millet and the Creoles’ “Rich Woman,” an intimacy to Bobby Charles’s “Small Town Talk,” and an elegance to the Impressions’ “I’m So Proud.” His soul is effortless and deeply felt but never showy, and is evident in every lyric he delivers. The Playhouse is grateful to this year’s Summer Gala underwriters; Diamond Sponsors Casey Energy, Tauck Tours, Platinum Sponsors Ann & Steve Carlson, Southridge, and Gold Sponsors Lori & John Berisford and Allison & Jon Stockel. Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs are featured artists of media sponsor WEBE 108fm
