Eagles/Chicago Tribute Show. Feb. 23 7 pm

Your favorite tribute band is back again.

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

Get directions here.

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:

Eagles Set
Hotel California
Best of My Love*
New Kid in Town
Take it Easy
Seven Bridges Road
Peaceful Easy Feeling
Witchy Woman
Heartache Tonight


Chicago Set:

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.

During his tenure, church membership has grown almost 30 percent, and a completely new church facility (sanctuary and education building) has been constructed. Northaven is a leading progressive Christian congregation in the Southwest. Northaven is an eclectic collection of gay and straight families, artists, musicians, theater folks, academic theologians, lawyers and judges (go figure), socially conscious community activists, people who don't "check their brain at the door," and a wide array of others who either see it as their "last chance" inside the "institutional church," or their first trip back in decades. Eric is an avid blogger and published author.  Eric is also an award-winning singer-songwriter, who performs throughout Texas and the Southwest. He's an engaging live performer whose first CD was released in 2000. His songs have won honorable mention in both the Billboard and Great American song contests; and he's been a finalist in the 5th Street Festival and South Florida Folk Festival songwriter competitions. Eric is also a leader of Connections, a unique band comprised of United Methodist clergy and layfolk from throughout North Texas. Connections performs "cover shows" of artists like Dan Fogelberg, Chicago, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and others. Their shows draw crowds of between 300 and 1,000 fans, and they have raised more than $240,000 dollars for worthy charities. Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He's a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named "best judge" by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County. She was re-elected for a third term in 2010. They have the world's best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy. (As always, if you like this post, then "like" this on Facebook by clicking the box below, so others can see too...)
