Daryl Hall & John Oates

When: Wed., March 13, 7:30 p.m. 2013

For a long while, Daryl Hall & John Oates were the model of blue-eyed soul. In the early '80s, when they were the biggest-selling pop duo working, their music was getting played on both top-40 and black radio stations. Soulful tunes such as "One on One" and "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" were top-10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts. Hell, next to Michael McDonald (given an honorary, lifetime ghetto pass for "I Keep Forgettin'"), Hall & Oates were the only white boys black people didn't mind hearing. When you come from the streets of Philly, home of Gamble & Huff and the Philadelphia Sound, rhythm and blues is obviously going to seep into your music a bit. —Craig D. Lindsey
