Downtown Cabaret Theatre - EAGLES TRIBUTE: DESERT HIGHWAY

04/12/2014 to 04/13/2014

Saturday, April 12 at 5:30pm, Saturday, April 12 at 8:30pm, Sunday, April 13 at 5:30pm. Desert Highway has quickly made a name for itself as the premiere Eagles Tribute Band in the United States. The group's renditions of Eagles classics have been recognized by those in the industry such as Jack Tempchin, (composer of "Peaceful Easy Feeling") and received praise throughout North America and Europe. The band has quickly risen through the ranks of tribute artists, and has gone from opening act to headliner status almost overnight. According to Pat Ryder – International Press Association 9/14/10..."The singers were eerily evocative of the originals. The guitar work was impeccable, and at times dazzling. Each supporting player had opportunities to shine throughout the evening" "Desert Highway left the impression that they were much more than an Eagles tribute band, and it was clear the individual players were all critical to the final product. For their efforts, the band got a standing ovation." One listen to Desert Highway is all it will take to make even the most die-hard Eagles lover a fan for life! Reserved tickets for performances: $47
