The MACC welcomes Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and the #1 SELLING DUO in music history: Daryl Hall and John Oates  — with special guest, Henry Kapono
 
Starting out as devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall and John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater,” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums: ’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I, and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional five Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So,” and “Method of Modern Love.”
 
Daryl also wrote the H&O single "Everytime You Go Away," which singer Paul Young covered and which subsequently scored a #1 hit in 1985. That same year, Daryl and John participated in the historic “We Are the World” session as well as closing the Live Aid show in Philadelphia.  
 
By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the #1 SELLING DUO in music history — a record they still hold today.
