Dukes of September Rhythm Revue

8 p.m. Wednesday, June 20. The Fox Theatre, 527 North Grand Boulevard.



Hometown hero Michael McDonald's career has been liberally sprinkled with collaborations. From his tenure as a Doobie Brother and a drop-in member of Steely Dan to his solo-era collabs with Kenny Loggins, Toto and Patti LaBelle, McDonald has been gracious about sharing the mic. So it's only natural that he partner with Steely Dan's Donald Fagen and Boz Scaggs, two fellow '70s titans who merged soul with something softer. They call the tour the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, and if its strange, unseasonable title rankles you, just let the smooth music carry you away.

What to Expect: The three performers hatched the tour as a tribute to the soul revues of their youth, so there should be plenty of covers with a few marquee songs from each man.
