‘Boys of Summer’ to perform music of The Eagles July 14


LAKEPORT, Calif. – Nationally-renowned tribute group The Boys of Summer, who meticulously recreate and perform the music of the Eagles, are on tour and will come to Lakeport to perform at the Lakeport Summer Concert Series this Friday, July 14. LAKEPORT, Calif. – Nationally-renowned tribute group The Boys of Summer, who meticulously recreate and perform the music of the Eagles, are on tour and will come to Lakeport to perform at the Lakeport Summer Concert Series this Friday, July 14.

The free concert will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Library Park.

The Boys of Summer were part of last summer's sold-out 16-week engagement "Petty vs. Eagles: A Musical Shootout" revue at Harrah's Reno.

"(We) performed for about 20 minutes, then the Petty Breakers played for 20 minutes … then us again, then, them again..and then, both bands appeared onstage for an Eagles/Petty mash-up," said Boys of Summer drummer, Jimmy Williamson. "The Beatles vs. The Stones (tribute bands) did this before and was hugely successful. So was ours!"

Interest in the Eagles – one of the biggest, most successful bands in the world during their '70's/'80's heyday, who have now been discovered and embraced by new generations of younger music fans – has recently skyrocketed with the passing of original Eagles member and principal songwriter, the late Glenn Frey.

The Boys of Summer address Frey's passing with a special tribute to him during their shows.

"Glenn meant so much to all of us. He shaped us into the musicians that we are today," said Williamson. "Don Henley said, 'It will be up to Glenn to decide when to call it quits. We will see what happens.' Personally, I would think that Glenn looking down on all the Eagles fans and tribute bands, would be honored at all of this. We will continue on with a heavy heart, spreading the legacy and love he left behind."

The Boys of Summer are James Williamson, drums-vocals; Darrel Monson, guitar/vocals; Craig T. Fall, guitar/vocals; Chris Turbis, keyboards/saxophones/acoustic guitar/vocals; and Jerry Schaeffer, bass/vocals, five hardworking musicians and lifelong friends, who play and channel some of the greatest music ever created and produced on the West Coast, that being from legendary rock group, the Eagles.

With each band-member possessing many decades of professional experience, TBOS play the true musical heart and soul of the Eagle's music – recreating the sounds, harmonies, and most important, the feel.

"It's the songs," said Williamson when interviewed by Stockton Record entertainment writer Tony Sauro about what makes the band's vision (and version) of Eagles' songs so special. "Everybody knows every record. Every song. Every guitar lick. And then he adds: "There's just an army of air-guitar players out there doing "Hotel California" when we play. Everybody knows every bit."
