Dark Desert Eagles - Ultimate Eagles Tribute

Thursday, July 18, 2019 8:00 pm

For fans of The Eagles who long for the LIVE re-creation of some of the greatest hits of a generation, the Dark Desert Eagles are the ULTIMATE Tribute to The Eagles! Songs from the best-selling Greatest Hits album of all time (Eagles Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975) along with hits from Hotel California, as well as several gems from Joe Walsh's solo career are masterfully re-created during a live show of the Dark Desert Eagles. Buckle up and get ready to enjoy a stunning musical tribute to America's Greatest Rock Band in the peak of their career!
Touched by the passing of Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey, Pat Badger (an original member of the multi-platinum rock act Extreme) set out to form the Dark Desert Eagles. Badger is an enormous fan of The Eagles' musicianship, vocal harmonies and timeless catalog. Having toured the world with Extreme, and having been a part of a group that sold over 10 million records featuring Top 10 hits like Hole Hearted and the Number 1 Grammy nominated smash hit More Than Words, Pat Badger had a vision for the types of musicians he would need to create the ultimate tribute to The Eagles.
"But just pulling off the music is just part of it." Badger says, "We really want to bring the audience back in time to the 70s! The image is almost as important as the music and we have really payed attention to detail on the wardrobe, the hairstyles, the guitars... everything that made the Eagles so cool!" He goes on to say, "We're not just pretending to be the Eagles, we are the Dark Desert Eagles who are the self-proclaimed World's Greatest Eagles Tribute band from 1977! We have traveled through time to the present day and when the house lights go down, the audience finds themselves in a Twilight Zone episode meets Back To The Future... It's a blast!"

Paul Thorn's new album Too Blessed To Be Stressed stakes out new territory for the popular roots-rock songwriter and performer. "In the past, I've told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life," the former prizefighter and literal son of a preacher man offers. "This time, I've written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and I've done it with a purpose: to make people feel good." That's really Thorn's mission for Too Blessed To Be Stressed, which can be heard as a running conversation about life between Thorn and listeners - a conversation leavened with gentles insights, small inspirations and plenty of cheer.

Sunday, August 18, 2019 7:00 & 9:30 pm

Most people would agree that there's nothing stronger, more durable and occasionally, even more volatile, than the bond between brothers. And when that bond includes the common goal of making music, the results often offer reason for an audience to sit up and take notice. Just ask the Bacon Brothers. Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age, the two siblings share a singular body of work that's found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in nine albums - Forosoco (1997), Getting There (1999), Can't Complain (2001), Live: The No Food Jokes Tour(2003), White Knuckles (2005), New Year's Day (2009), Philadelphia Road (2011) 36 Cents (2014), and the eponymous, The Bacon Brothers (2018) -- spanning rock, soul, folk and Americana. Never content to be typecast, they're fiercely devoted to the cause of making music, undeterred by fame, fortune or the pitfalls that frequently obstruct the path to success.

Major Dudes - Steely Dan Tribute

Major Dudes - Steely Dan Tribute

Friday, September 13, 2019 8:00 pm

Major Dudes formed in late 2015 with a simple mission: let's make it hard on ourselves. That's right. When Danny Taylor (keyboards and lead vocals) and Paul Laginess (bass and vocals) set out for seemingly the umpteenth time to put a band together - don't ask - they figured the best way to finally solidify a project and to sustain it was to make it as appealing as possible, to themselves, naturally, and to any other musicians they could enlist. So, the challenge for Danny and Paul was twofold. Select a bunch of fun, challenging and seldom covered material (hey!...how about a Steely Dan tribute?), and find talented and like-minded musicians to fill out the lineup.
Well, we like to think we accomplished the mission. Apart from Danny and Paul, a few words about those "talented and like-minded musicians". Guitarist Waldon Reed is a highly regarded Redford-based musician who has been teaching, recording CDs (a total of eight, four of which bassist Paul played on), and performing since the mid-1980s. Around even longer, David Reinstein is on saxophones and keyboards. He's played with more artists and bands than we could list but to name just a few, there's Orange Lake Drive, The Sun Messengers, Stewart Francke, and the Detroit Piston's band. He's written and performed for radio, television and movies. On drums and lead vocals, veteran Jim Pryor is the man. He's one of the hardest workers around. Major Dudes is sharing him with at least 4 other bands and he's been as busy over the last 3+ decades as he is now. Newest member, Carl Cafagna on saxophones, flute and vocals, joined in March of 2018 and has helped open a whole new realm of possibilities for the band. He's an in-demand live performer, a studio ace, and a 2018 Detroit Music Award nominee in the outstanding jazz instrumentalist category.
Danny Taylor and Paul Laginess have been around since the early 70s and have been working with each other off and on for over a decade. Danny has spent a good chunk of his time over that same decade in The Rockets and has recorded dozens of great original tunes, some of which Major Dudes perform currently. Apart from his recordings with guitarist Waldon Reed, Paul has played with many groups and musicians over the years most notably with legendary local late 70s band Air Condo and for most of this century with Blue Bang Theory led by Three Dog Night member, Paul Kingery.
