    Hosted by Blue Ocean Music Hall
    Thursday 12/29 at 8pm ( Doors open at 7pm)

    Eagles fan? Head on down to Blue Ocean Music Hall to enjoy the sounds of Dark Desert Eagles band, an ultimate Eagles Tribute Band with Francoix Simard.

    About The Band
    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.
