Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Hall & Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have also become musical influences on some of today’s popular artists. Hall & Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. 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.”
Hall also wrote the Hall & Oates single "Everytime You Go Away," which singer Paul Young scored a number-one hit with a cover of the song in 1985.
That same year, Hall & Oates, 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 Hall & Oates as the no. 1 selling duo in music history, a record they still hold today.
On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton.
In 2014, Hall & Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That same year, Hall opened “Daryl’s House,” the restaurant and music club, on Halloween night in Pawling, NY with a special performance featuring Hall & Oates. “Daryl’s House,” which also serves as the backdrop for the show, “Live From Daryl’s House,” aims to combine top-notch food with amazing artists.
Oates released his memoir, “Change Of Seasons” (St. Martin’s Press) on March 28, 2017. Relying on his many handwritten journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories, ranging over his entire life, with a journalist’s eye and a poet’s heart. In “Change of Seasons,” Oates shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities, and music that have shaped him into who he is.
Giant Center hosts an impressive line-up of star-studded performances including concerts, professional ice shows and family events. It also serves as home to the Hershey Bears Hockey Club and various PIAA high school state championship events.
