The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

I realized that the real sound of the Doors was Ray and Robby all along. and the new lead singer did a credible job of Jim Morrison sound. I really enjoyed it. Thought I was at a Doors concert I will see them again if they're in the area.

SUPER! Had never been to the Grove before. Nice to be seated at tables and not in rows with no leg room.

Ray and Robby were a kick to see. Still pounding out that music and looking great. The "Jim Morrison" character did an excellent job...continued

Ray and Robbie are about 70 years young these days. They performed most of their popular songs with the passion of much younger men. Including myself, there was quite a bit of silver hair in the audience. I moved to the 'mosh pit' for the...continued

Description

Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors bring the classic Doors music to the Grove of Anaheim.

The Doors were born in 1965, when Manzarek met fellow UCLA film student Jim Morrison on Venice Beach, California. The singer’s poetry was a perfect fit for the classically trained keyboardist’s musical ideas, and eventually they decided to form a band. When Robby Krieger and John Densmore came onboard as guitarist and drummer, The Doors were complete. Though several bassists auditioned for the group, none could match the bass lines provided by Manarek’s left hand. Signed to Elektra Records, The Doors released sex albums, a live album and a compilation before Morrison’s untimely demise in 1971.

Ray Manzarek was the architect of The Doors’ intoxicating sound. His evocative keyboard playing fused rock, jazz, blues, classical and an array of other styles into something utterly and dazzlingly new, creating a new sound in rock music.

Guitarist Robby Krieger penned a majority of The Doors’ music, including “Light My Fire”, “Love Me Two Times”, “Touch Me” and “Love Her Madly”.

After numerous writing, collaborating and producing projects by each, Manzarek and Krieger joined forces with Brett Scallions from the band Fuel to form the Manzarek-Krieger band and brought classic Doors material to sold-out crowds composed of longtime fans and newcomers alike.
