    Just a heads up. On my TV I'm watching a Hall and Oates recorded concert from an engagement in Ireland in 2015. Never saw these guys and don't own an album or CD. My bad. They sound great! I was having a ton of fun playing along with them as I watched. Often liked their music but never saw a concert, but I think I missed some fun music.

    I'm near Boston, but I can't tell the channel. It's one where they first had an interview with Dan Rather and Daryl Hall. Cool stuff. These guys can rock and roll. Check it out if you can.

    I got into Live From Darryl's House when it first started. Lots of fun to watch the band play through pop tunes with guest artists.

    The concert I watched last night was on AXIS TV. If you can catch it on cable, it is worth the time as was the interview with Hall that preceded the concert. The soul in his music gets the audience entranced. And the guys in the band can play, including a young "lead" guitarist. One can really hear the influence of the Temptations and other soul bands, but with a modern twist. Out of all the bands from back in the day, this is one I would go see live.

    I find the presentation and frills are OTT, but I think the performances outstanding - and Darryl Hall's in better voice than ever.

    I saw them live about 2-3 years ago--frankly I was not a huge fan in the 70's or 80's, as it was too pop-oriented, with the exception of the album Daryl Hall did with Robert Fripp. That was awesome.

    Anyway, we saw them at an outdoor venue, and they were outstanding. Great voice, great musicality and arrangements. Even the silly 80's stuff like Private Eyes benefited from a kind of retro RNB format.

    IMO they are one of the best groups still out there playing from the 70's--good chops and both with excellent voices. John Oates is an underrated singer and guitarist--played mainly rhythm, but occasionally he would play a tasty lead solo. I was not aware he was the featured voice on several of their hits.

    And Daryl Hall is a fine rhythm guitarist, as well as being a keyboard whiz.

    The other group I saw about the same time at the same venue (Stir Cove at Harrah's Casinon in Council Bluffs, IA), which I wasn't expecting to enjoy nearly as much as I did, was Heart. Those Wilson sisters can still rock (or could, as I hear they are pissed off at each other right now). And lots of classic rock guitar crunching.

    Saw them in late 1980. They played several encores and proved they were really having a good time playing for the audience (college kids). Daryl Hall played several Gibson electric tenors (LP's, ES's) for his rhythm guitar work. I never see him playing them on his web/TV show but wish he would.
