7 Bridges - The Ultimate Eagles Experience


7 Bridges : The Ultimate EAGLES Experience is a Nashville-based, stunningly accurate tribute to the music of the Eagles. Using no backing tracks or harmonizers, 7 Bridges faithfully re-creates the experience of an Eagles concert from the band’s most prolific period. Every show features one brilliant hit single after another with some mighty Don Henley and Joe Walsh surprises sprinkled into the mix.
7 Bridges offers the perfect blend of songs to capture all levels of Eagles devotees.

7 Bridges is a tour de force of talent combining incredible musicianship, vocal precision and a stage presence that has garnered them nationwide acclaim. The band features Jason Manning as Glenn Frey, Keith Thoma as Don Henley, Bryan Graves as Randy Meisner/Timothy B. Schmit, Tony Haan, Jr. as the eccentric and unpredictable Joe Walsh, Blake Hall as guitar wizard Don Felder, and Vernon Roop as Joe Vitale, the often unsung hero of many Eagles studio albums and live performances.

For years, 7 Bridges: The Ultimate EAGLES Experience has been the 'go to' choice for corporate, fair/festival, casino and private events. |
7 Bridges provides an all ages, family friendly show weaved into a powerful rock-n-roll concert experience. The perfect entertainment package!!

Hobbs Sisters

Growing up in Peters Township, Pennsylvania in Washington County, The Hobbs Sisters, Hannah and Lauren, were always singing.They credit both their grandfather, Pappaw Johnand the church choir for getting them into music. 

Hannah and Lauren have always had a lovefor harmony, which they frequently incorporate into their music. Whether adding it into cover songs or writing it into their original music, harmony has become the signature sound for the Hobbs Sisters.

The Hobbs Sisters have opened for national country acts Chris Cagle, Brett Eldredge and The Swon Brothers. In 2014, they shared the stage with national acts, Jana Kramer, Maddie and Tae, Cassadee Pope and Rae Lynn as part of Y108's Girls With Guitars Concert. They had the honor of appearing on The Wheeling Jamboree in June 2013 and also performed at College Fest 2013 in Boston, MA. 

The Hobbs Sisters recorded their debut EP at Sonytree Studios in Nashville. The self-titled, 5 song EP was released in May 2013 and the lead single, "Love Don't Give Up" received airplay in Pittsburgh and several other states.


SATURDAY 5:00 - 6:00

Ruff Creek


With a style all their own, Ruff Creek has become one of Pittsburgh’s most sought after country rock bands, headlining in popular bars and clubs throughout Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, as well as opening for national artists such as Blake Shelton, Gary Alan, Craig Morgan, Travis Tritt, Trace Adkins, Phil Vasser, Lonestar, Diamond Rio, Sara Evans, Dwight Yoakum and The Charlie Daniels Band. With a jam packed schedule Ruff Creek captures the rhythm of the music with a steady sound and electric energy.

Fronted by lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist Devon Johnson, Ruff Creek also features John Parrendo/fiddle, Bobby Curti, guitar/vocals;
Pat Phillips, bass guitar/vocals and Ryan Lucoch, drums.

Their second CD, ..No Regrets.., has received favorable reviews from the industry and the media. All twelve tracks epitomize the long journey that Ruff Creek has endured; touching on the accomplishments, disappointments, heartaches and thrills that come with turning your dream into a reality.

Recently, Devon and the band performed an Industry Showcase at the renowned 12th & Porter in Nashville, Tennessee for reps from major and independent record labels, booking agents, and members of the local media. "Bet He Didn't Say That", the first single from their CD, "No Regrets" enjoyed airtime on radio stations across the United States and had an impressive 24 week run on the Music Row Charts, topping off at 64!! Lead vocalist Devon Allen Johnson was also featured in Country Weekly Magazine!

“When an artist performs armed only with an acoustic guitar, a voice, and a song, it’s pretty easy to tell whether he or she has
the goods or not. The country weekly staff is a tough audience and Devon impressed us all with his passion, his talent, and the
directness in his music.”
Chris Neal
Music Editor
Country Weekly Magazine

Ruff Creek was chosen as one of the top 15 bands/artists in the Northeast for the Disc Makers’ Independent Music World Series CD
Compilation! There were over 1,300 entries received! Our song, “No Regrets” is featured on the CD, which was sent out to industry
executives, radio stations, magazines, and newspapers around the country!

"Brimming with vivid characters, familiar country touchstones and an up tempo, friendly groove, 'No Regrets' is on a short list of the best
country albums to come out of Pittsburgh in recent years."
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Ruff Creek blends smooth-sippin' Nashville pop-country with more indigenous influences -- the classic-rock canon of 'DVE.”
Pittsburgh City Paper

"Ruff Creek's new CD represents a major step forward in the band's development. Great songs, great production and an ever-growing fan
base mean the future is bright for one of Froggyland's most popular live acts."

“It’s the type of band that keeps people on the floor all night, … only to demand one encore after another.”


Saddle Up…this band’s name cannot be any more descriptive in the style of music it represents.


Saddle Up’s become the hottest, high-energy country rock band in Pittsburgh’s 7-county region. Examples of high status gigs include performing at the Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp, headlining county fairs and sharing the stage with country stars Rodney Atkins, Chris Cagle and Brad Paisley.


It all began with front man and lead singer Mike Garris, and his quest to find the perfect combination of professional musicians for the band. Mike’s passion, dedication and determination to find the best of the best lead him to drummer Scott Berry, bassist Tim Lawrence, guitarist Gary Hill, and lead guitarist Bob Hartnett.


These 5 individuals create a unique style of country with rock-like edge. Music lovers from both country and rock n’ roll genres enjoy and appreciate the sounds of Saddle Up.


Tight, dynamic, and punchy bass and drums; blazing guitar riffs; in-your-face rhythm guitars with dual melodies … and an entertaining front man who knows how to embrace and work a crowd.  This rocking country sensation has created a loyal following wherever they play. People of all ages just can’t seem to get enough of the band.


And when it comes to fan appreciation – its fans are a top priority for Saddle Up.  It’s evident during every performance as well as in its daily communication and promotions across social media.


Whether it’s a corporate event, casino event, headlining a county fair, raising thousands of dollars for a charity, or sharing the stage with a national artist, Saddle up provides the highest and most energetic country rock show that people of all ages can enjoy.

Midnight Special - The Classic Rock Experience

On a frigid New Years Eve show in 1976 when two local Cincinnati bands were scheduled to perform together. All seemed like just another Happy New Year's show with the slight exception that only one member from each band had showed up. No other than founding members Gregg St.Charles and Joey Von Richter who then scrambled to collect enough pocket change to make a few calls to find some other musicians to help cover the night. What went down on that special night was nothing short of a belated Christmas Miracle, for on that magical night was forged the beginning of a band that would come and go for the next 33 years, Midnight Special then went on to tour nationally becoming one of America's Premier Rock N  Roll shows, opening for countless National headliners, Fairs, Theaters, Festivals, Theme Parks and Bar Mitzvah's. Midnight Special also enjoyed regional success on Polygraph Records with the release of "Eye to Eye" and "Dixie Normous."
