PACK gives BACK™ returns to PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Las Vegas Convention Center; Sept. 25–27, 2017) – and the co-located Healthcare Packaging EXPO – with The Doobie Brothers, the legendary rock and roll band born out of the chaotic, late-1960s musical stew.
The event, sponsored by Rockwell Automation, on Monday, Sept. 25 at 4 pm, has become a tradition for PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. It is open to industry professionals with a portion of the proceeds going toward the PACK EXPO Scholarship which provides grants to U.S. and Canadian colleges with processing and packaging programs.
The entertainment will be sure to draw a big audience. Now in their 47th year, The Doobie Brothers have won four GRAMMY® Awards and sold more than 48 million records worldwide. The 1976 “Best of the Doobies” has sold more than 12 million copies. Their gold-certified singles “Black Water” and “What a Fool Believes” lead a catalog of hits that includes “Listen to the Music,” “Jesus Is Just All Right,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “China Grove,” “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “You Belong to Me,” and “The Doctor.” In all, The Doobies have tallied five Top 10 singles and 16 Top 40 hits, earning a spot in the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.
“I’m excited to have a band with their string of hits attached to the PACK EXPO brand and the PACK gives BACK™ event,” says Jim Pittas, chief operating officer, PMMI. “We are looking forward to raising some serious money to invest in the future of the processing and packaging community through the PACK EXPO Scholarship.”
