Heartache Tonight - A Tribute to the Eagles w/ Ted Yoder
Mar 23 07:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Memorial Opera House - Valparaiso
From the powerful guitar duel in “Hotel California” to the shimmering harmonies of “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” Heartache Tonight delivers a true Eagles concert experience in every detail. Each performance features unforgettable hit songs from all eras and incarnations of the Eagles, plus great solo hits like Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way,” and Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.”
The six members of Heartache Tonight have shared stages with some of the biggest names in rock, including Jimmy Buffett, Eddie Money and the Doobie Brothers, and have played festivals and performing arts centers across the country.
Drummer Chris “Bean” Weng’s voice is a dead ringer for Henley’s, while band leader Tom Carey takes the lead on the songs of the late great Glenn Frey. Guitarists Tom O’Brien and Jim Altenbach use a mix of vintage and modern equipment that allows them to replicate exactly all the original Eagles guitar parts, ensuring that each hit song sounds just the way it did when it was first recorded. Bassist John Forrest and keyboard player Scott Bahry sing the lion’s share of the signature harmonies that made the Eagle’s sound so iconic.
Every show is filled with moments designed to thrill classic rock fans: the soaring a cappella harmonies of “Seven Bridges Road,” the snarling guitars of “Life In The Fast Lane,” the anthemic country rock of “Take It Easy,” and the beautifully evocative “Heart Of The Matter.”
Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re hearing the real thing.
