Hall and Oates Ravinia 5

I was first introduced to Hall & Oates via 8 Track, I know that sounds like it may be dating me but I’m a fairly young Hall & Oates fan. When I would visit my grandma I used to go through all my aunts old records and 8 Tracks because I thought they were so cool. One of the songs I would listen to over and over was “Maneater” so when H&O opened their show playing it I was brought back to my 8 Track listening days. Their show was fantastic! Filled with all my favorite songs and songs I had forgotten about. Their bandmates were super energetic and really got the crowd going.

Hall & Oates have been making great music for 4 decades but not many fans know about Daryl’s internet show “Live From Daryl’s House“. The show is literally that, Daryl invites friends over to play music and it’s all on the internet. Daryl announced the show will soon have a new home on Chicago’s WGN network. So if you haven’t had a chance to catch his show online you will be able to catch it the ol’ fashion way – on the tube.

Oates has also been busy on his own side project Mississippi Mile. Named after the Mississippi Delta to recognize the birthplace of American Pop music. Oates says this is where Rock & Roll really started before making its way to Chicago, Detroit or his hometown of Philadelphia. Mississippi Mile is a collection of cover tunes from the likes of Elvis Presley to Chuck Berry and even covering his own Hall & Oates songs.
