The band formerly known as “Living Legacy Band” is now known as “Connections.” (It’s a long story…) And we’ll be playing our Eagles/Chicago Tribute Show at the end of the February. Here are the details:
Connections in Concert
Tribute to the Eagles and Chicago
Friday, February 23, 7 pm
Wesley Hall, Highland Park UMC
This will be the show we’ve done previously at two other church/venues, and in both cases it was well-loved by the crowd. For a refresher, Connections is a band of 20-plus musicians who do “tribute” shows to famous artists.
The Eagles/Chicago Show at SVUMC
Each musician volunteers their time and there is no charge for admission to the shows. However, a “love offering” is taken up to benefit “UMCOR,” a first-responding relief organization similar to the Red Cross. To date, we’ve raised over $5,000 for UMCOR.
This show is sponsored by the “Cornerstone” worship of HPUMC. Wesley Hall is a huge performance hall at HPUMC that was built several years back. It’s state of the art in terms of sound and lighting, and so this should be a very good show.
I play guitar on almost all the Eagles stuff, and sing lead on several of your favorite songs (Best of My Love, Desperado, Color My World, Make Me Smile, Saturday in the Park, and others…) I really love playing with this band. We have a lot of fun together, and we’ve managed to get a pretty “tight” sound that folks tell is sounds great.
We’ve cut the set list a little bit, to make it a more comfortable length. Here’s what it looks like:
Best of My Love*
New Kid in Town
Take it Easy
Seven Bridges Road
Peaceful Easy Feeling
Make Me Smile*
Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
25 or 6 to 4
Colour My World*
Just You and Me
Call on Me
Feeling Stronger Every Day
Searching for So Long
If You Leave Me Now
Saturday in the Park*
We hope we’ll have a big crowd, and we hope you’ll plan to come.
