The Doobie Brothers
The final days of summer are always bittersweet. Labor Day looms as a signal of shorter days and cooler weather to come. This year, 102.9 WMGK will hold its big summer concert at the unofficial end of the season, a change from the usual Independence Day celebration. As the warm weekends wane, join in for one final musical hurrah, with a terrific lineup of local and national talent.
The Susquehanna Bank Center will host the affair on Sept. 5. Four great musical acts will take the stage, with the MGK house band, Work Release, kicking things off in its last official show.
Work Release will be followed by David Uosikkinen’s fantastic local project, In the Pocket. Uosikkinen will take the drums and be joined by several of his fellow Hooters, along with other Philadelphia musicians, including Tommy Conwell. Together, they’ll traverse the rich history of Philly’s pop music scene.
The Doobie Brothers and Steve Miller will then each take the stage, performing 90-minute sets. Talk about a sing-along. It promises to offer one favorite hit after another.
Be sure to wear festive concert attire. The WMGK staff will be wandering around to upgrade seats for those who are decked out. There will also be special guests, prizes, and a live broadcast from the show.
Work Release: 5:30-6 p.m.
In the Pocket: 6:20-7 p.m.
The Doobie Brothers: 7:30-9 p.m.
Steve Miller: 9:30-11 p.m.
