Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald

When: Fri., Aug. 11, 7 p.m. 2017

While so many of his ’70s yacht-rock brethren have disappeared into the ether (or, more accurately, sailed off into the sunset), Michael McDonald managed to create a serious second act for his career after his early success as part of the Doobie Brothers and as a solo artist in the ’80s. I’ll fully admit his tune “Sweet Freedom” from the Billy Crystal action flick Running Scared is a guilty pleasure. While the ’90s were largely a lost decade for the smoky-smooth-voiced frontman, his decision to do an album of Motown covers in 2003 led to a couple of Grammy Awards and a new explosion of popularity for the silver-haired crooner. Joining him for this show is Boz Scaggs, another singer/songwriter who cut his teeth with a popular ’70s act (Steve Miller Band) before lighting out for solo success with songs like “Lido Shuffle.”
