Spread Eagle: Tribute To The Eagles
Remember when the song “Take It Easy” first graced radios across the nation, you got a strange feeling on the back of your neck, and you just knew this was a musical sound you could not ignore? It was clean acoustic electric guitar artistry, topped off with sweet, sweet vocal harmonies – it all really caught you by surprise. The year was 1972, America was still struggling with a war in a place called Viet Nam… riots and protests on the evening news each day… and The Eagles began their journey down the fast lane.
Spread Eagle: Tribute To The Eagles formed out of passion for the music The Eagles brought to us over the past 35 years. Spread Eagle: Tribute To The Eagles has endeavored to re-create the fantastic musical and vocal sound of The Eagles… and, they’ve succeeded by all accounts! Spread Eagle: Tribute To The Eagles is the 2nd best Eagles concert you’ll ever hear!
Spread Eagle has absolutely captured the essence of The Eagles in every song they play. From the ballads such as Desperado, Wasted Time, I can’t Tell You Why, and Best Of My Love, to the country rock songs like Lyin’ Eyes, Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, and Tequila Sunrise, and to their power house rock hits like Hotel California, Life In The Fast Lane, Get Over It, and Victim Of Love, Spread Eagle plays the very best of them all. In addition to that core material, they also play the hits from the solo careers of Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Glenn Frey. They also play songs that you will NEVER hear the Eagles play in concert again.
Theirs is an appealing “rockacoustoelectric” show - no screaming, jumping off stages, guitar smashing, mosh pits, or profane language. The music of The Eagles appeals to most all ages, and is suitable for any group of people, and is family friendly too.
Spread Eagle has played up and down the east coast at venues both large and small. Based in New England, the band plays regionally as well as nationally. During summer of 2005, the band played at east coast venues in advance of The Eagles appearances during the Farewell I tour, and they gave away choice Eagles concert tickets to lucky Eagles fans.
After forming in 2001, the band worked very hard trying to find the right formulas and the right personnel to achieve their goal to be the absolute BEST Eagles Tribute plaing anywhere. In early 2004, they settled upon the right recipe and solidified their line up. Spread Eagle: Tribute To The Eagles is comprised of:
Paul Hawkins - Glenn Frey vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar 2nd keyboards.
Tim Plouffe - Don Henley vocals, drums/percussion.
