One of my fondest memories from my teenage years was cruising the country roads with my girlfriends in a Chevrolet Nova and listening to a cassette of the hottest band around in the 70’s. I can still hear the lyrics in my head. “Dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair…”
The Eagles were and still are one of the most popular bands of my generation. I regret never having the opportunity to see them live in concert. But this weekend I’ll experience the next best thing. Hotel California is playing at Pocahontas Premieres on Saturday, August 4, 2012.
Hotel California recreates the classic sounds of the Eagles
Hotel California blends their extraordinary vocal and musical talents to accurately reproduce the sound of the Eagles. This band has recreated a classic sound which undeniably transcends the boundaries of Rock, R&B and Country while delivering a modern and action packed performance. Hotel California will present the Eagles mega-hits such as “Take it Easy”, “Heartache Tonight”, and “Hotel California.”
