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.

Saddle Up


“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.
