Five-time Grammy-winner Michael McDonald's smooth soul baritone, stellar songwriting and distinctive look have made him a pop-music icon ever since he broke through with the Doobie Brothers in 1975. His tenure with the group produced major hits like "Real Love," "Takin' It to the Streets" and "What a Fool Believes," among others. And even after going solo in 1982, he manned the top of the charts with tunes like "I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)," "Yah Mo B There," "Sweet Freedom" and "On My Own," his No. 1 duet with Patti LaBelle. Since then, he continues to blaze new trails, with projects ranging from a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated album of Motown covers to a tour with Donald Fagen and Boz Scaggs and even a guest appearance with indie rockers Grizzly Bear. He'll play his favorites and more when he hits The Canyon for this concert. Learn More

Friends and I had a really great time. The Who is my favorite band ever so I didn't know what to expect. Front man for the "Who" really had mannerisms and moves down. Voice was pretty good most of the time. Queen Nation was really fun too and both bands got the audiance going. Loved singing along to the classics. Would definately go again and would bring my kids next time.
Joe Retta is a talented singer and performer who has an uncanny ability to totally assume the role of rock's greatest icons. His role accomplishments include Ronnie James Dio, Paul Rogers, Robert Plant and of course Freddie Mercury. Joe can easily recreate the vocals of the late Queen frontman complete with his dead-on physical appearance and on-stage mannerisms.
Growing up in Rochester New York, Joe's biggest influences were Stevie Wonder, Edgar Winter, Steve Walsh (Kansas) and lovely and talented Cher.
In 2004, guitarist Mike McManus got a call from singer Joe Retta to complete the line-up for Queen Nation. Looking at it as a labor of love, Mike buckled down and began learning all the guitar parts and transcribing all the harmonies. Not an easy task! Mike stated "I didn't think I could gain any more respect for Brian May and Queen than I already had... My respect for them DOUBLED when I sat down to learn these songs!" His hard work led to an endorsement with Burns Guitars, maker of the Brian May model. Add to that Mike's dead-on Brian May mannerisms and accurate stage attire, and you'd swear you were at the L.A. Forum in 1980!
The Who Revue
The Who Revue takes you back in time to the heyday of rock's most exciting live act - The Who! Performing classics like "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Can't Explain," "Who Are You" and many more, The Who Revue recreates the sounds, the look, and the energy of The Who at their peak: the power vocals and microphone twirling of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend's acrobatic windmills and leaps, Keith Moon's out-of-control drumming and comical antics, and the thundering bass virtuosity of 'The Ox', John Entwistle. The Who Revue captures the essence of this legendary band with a high-energy live rock show that amazes audiences everywhere and brings the awesome spectacle of "Maximum R&B" back to life!
