John Oates Unites with Bob Weir, Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar for Charity Show

John
Oates
is
teaming
up
with

Bob
Weir,

Dave
Grohl,

Sammy
Hagar,
Jim
James,
Keb
Mo,
Shawn
Colvin,
Michael
Franti,
and
his
Hall
&
Oates
partner
Daryl
Hall
on
March
20th
for
Oates
Song
Fest
7908,
a
streaming
concert
that
will
raise
money
for

Feeding
America.

“This
will
be
an
entertaining
and
innovative
way
for
the
music
community
to
share
their
songwriting
creativity
in
an
effort
help
feed
Americas’
hungry
families
in
need,”
Oates
said
in
a
statement.

Oates
will
co-host
the
event
with

Saxsquatch,
a
“one-beast
band”
that
has
gone
viral
by
playing
socially
distanced
gigs
dressed
up
like
Bigfoot.
The
Hall
&
Oates
singer
and
his
wife
Aimee
were
inspired
to
put
the
show
together
by
a
gig
he
produced
in
2010
at
the
Wheeler
Opera
House
in
Aspen,
Colorado.

“Due
to
the
Covid-19
pandemic,
when
it
became
clear
that
live
shows
would
not
be
possible,
Aimee
and
I
pivoted
to
the
idea
of
creating
a
virtual
version
for
charity,”
he
said,
“and
Oates
Song
Fest
7908 was
born.”

The
show
is
free,
but
viewers
will
be
asked
to
donate
to
the
cause.
It
will
be
streamed
across
multiple
platforms
via
NugsTV.


Hall
&
Oates
were
originally
set
to
spend
2020
on
the
road
with
Squeeze
and
K.T.
Tunstall,
but
they
had
to
call
it
off
after
just
a
handful
of
warm-up
shows
due
to
the
pandemic.
Right
now,
Hall
is
working
on
their
first
album
of
original
songs
since
2003’s

Do
It
for
Love.

“It’s
in
the
early,
preliminary
days
of
it,”

Oates
told

Rolling
Stone

last
year.
“He’s
very
excited,
and
he’s
been
spending
some
time
in
Europe.
He’s
found
some
young
producers
he’s
kind
of
getting
energized
with.
He’ll
jump-start
the
process
and
then
I’ll
definitely
jump
on
board
later.”
