For anyone who doesn’t know Hall & Oates, you should get to know them. That’s job one. They ruled the airwaves in the late ’70s through to the mid ’80s with their unique mix of pop, rock, blues and soul. They quickly became one of the most powerful and respected partnerships in music.

In 2007, Daryl Hall started his own website – Live from Daryl’s House. The idea was to play music with his friends and stick it up on the Internet. Since then his quests have included: Matt Nathenson, Keb’ Mo’, Chromeo, Smokey Robinson, Train, John Rzeznik and Todd Rundgren to name but a few.
