Take It Easy, Heartache Tonight and other timeless hits by the Eagles will be performed by tribute band Hotel California in Red Deer next week. The five multi-talented musicians who make up “arguably the most popular” Eagles tribute band in the world, will play on Thursday, June 5, at Fratters Speakeasy.

By blending their vocal and musical talents, the musicians in Hotel California faithfully reproduce the sound of the Eagles’ studio recordings, recreating music that transcended the boundaries of rock, R&B, and country during the 1970s.

The Eagles scored seven number one singles, six Grammys, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums during the group’s storied career. Formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner, the band went on to create music that defined a generation.

With massive hits, including Hotel California, the Eagles became one of the most popular bands of all time, with 150 million records sold. Hotel California is ranked 37th in Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums, and the Eagles were ranked number 75 on the magazine’s 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists.

Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles was founded with the intent of filling the void left by the demise of the Eagles, who originally broke up in 1982.

Each tribute concert will present an showcase of mega-hits, as well as newer releases Get Over It and Love will Keep Us Alive and select titles from the solo works of Henley, Frey, and Joe Walsh. This music will be “bringing back memories and touching the hearts of every generation,” say promoters, who add “close your eyes and you’d swear it was The Eagles, note for note.”

This show has performed in 12 countries, internationally, and has shared the stage with the Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, REO Speedwagon and Gretchen Wilson.

Advance tickets are on sale for $20 at 53rd Street Music, The Soundhouse, and Fratters Speakeasy Venue. Tickets will cost $25 at the door.
