7 Bridges

SATURDAY

7 Bridges : The Ultimate EAGLES Experience

7 Bridges : The Ultimate EAGLES Experience is a 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, Race Godson as the eccentric and unpredictable Joe Walsh, Douglas Gery 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!! Please contact us for booking and touring information at:

From a musical standpoint, you will be in for a treat! They are awesome musicians who care about sounding really good. They do a Blues Brothers Set, where they come out dressed the part and do Soul Man, of course, and other upbeat, very dancable blues songs. They also do other costume things with disco wigs, hats, glasses, ZZTop beards, even tambourines for the dancers, and the crowd always loves these touches. The great thing is they sound so good while having such a great time. They interact with the crowd, which people love. The crowd always has more fun when the band is having fun!

Draw The Line:
The Endorsed Aerosmith Tribute Band

Hailing from Boston, Mass., The city that boasts the World Championship Red Sox, The New England Patriots, the musical groups Boston, members of Journey, J.Geils, and Peter Wolf, Godsmack, of course Aerosmith. Adding to the subculture of this city is Draw The Line the Aerosmith Tribute Band. The bands career, now spanning almost fifteen years, has taken them all over the world. The band has performed in all but two U.S. states. They have also been to Peurto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other U.S. territories. They have toured to other countries such as England, Canada, South America and Japan just to name a few. With over 2000 performances in over 100 cities, Draw The Line is sure soon to be in a venue near you!

During a January 1998 interview, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler singled out Draw The Line as the best of the Aerosmith tribute bands. On Boston's biggest Rock radio station 104.1 WBCN, disc jockey Nick Carter quoted "I've seen Draw The Line! They ARE Aerosmith!" The band is popular on the college circuit as well, and has been interviewed by several Boston-based college radio stations, such as Brandeis University's 100.1 WBRS. DTL has also had featured articles in international fanzines, Boston area newspapers such as The Patriot Ledger, The Boston Globe, The Mariner papers, etc.

They are the only tribute band who has been featured on the Official Aerosmith Website as well as that of Aerosmith's Official Fan Club. With support and accolades from Aerosmith themselves, as well as journalists, top DJs, and fans worldwide, its no wonder that Draw The Line is recognized as a one-of-a-kind. "A professional show band in a league of their own amongst tribute acts, and of a caliber that is unparalleled in the tribute genre" says reporter, Joe Reardon of the Mariner Newspaper Group.

The group's fanatical popularity was evident the evening of January 1, 1999, when it played at the former Mama Kins Music Hall in Boston in front of a sold out crowd of 800. Among other famous faces at that show was Steven Tyler's daughter, model Mia Tallarico. Steven Tyler quoted his daughter the next day as saying "Dad, have you seen this? From where I was standing, I couldn't believe how much they (Draw The Line) looked and sounded just like you!"

Draw The Line's lead singer, Neill Byrnes, won a Steven Tyler look-alike contest on 107.3 WAAF, another one of Boston's biggest rock radio stations. Even MTV agrees to the easily mistaken identity of Steven Tyler. So MTV invited Neill to fly to New York so they could film his magical impersonation for a promotional video. Even more recently Byrnes has been approached by VH1 to appear on they're new program, Rock Candy.

If you love Aerosmith, this is the tribute show You Don't Wanna Miss!

Entertainment! The Embry Brothers

SUNDAY

Embry Brothers

Jesse, Eric, and Brandon Embry founded their first band, Wiley Fox, in May of 1990. They spent the next two decades honing their skills, and building a great following. In that time they became one of the most sought after bands in the Tampa Bay Area! In late 2002 they were in need of a temporary drummer while Eric needed some time off. They met Terry Ettel and eleven years later he is still with them!

They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with numerous national acts including Willie Nelson, George Straight, Montgomery Gentry, Jason Aldean, Joe Nichols, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and many more. In 2010 they decided it was time for a break, and disbanded... One year later they reformed under a new name (The Embry Brothers Band), and added Guitarist/Singer Erik Paulson from California. With the new name and new line up they took a different direction with their music playing more classic and southern rock.

The past two years have been a great ride, and they are looking forward to big things in the coming year. The Embry Brothers Band is the perfect mixture of family harmonies, and good old fashioned American Rock and Roll!

The Outlaws

SUNDAY
APRIL 13th, 2014
3:30 - 4:45pm

The Outlaws

For The Outlaws, it was always about the music. For 40 years, the Southern Rock legends celebrated triumphs, endured tragedies and survived legal nightmares to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: It's about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. It's about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by its past. But most of all, it's about pride.

It's About Pride is the new album from The Outlaws, a record 4 years in the making and perhaps 20 or more in the waiting. And for original Outlaws vocalist/guitarist Henry Paul, it's a hard-fought revival whose success can be measured in old fans and new music. "Because The Outlaws have been out of the public eye for so long, it's almost like starting over," he explains. "But because of the band's history, we're seeing this as a new chapter. We've written and recorded this album on our own terms, and we're out to make a significant impression. What our fans loved then they still love now, but most of all, they recognize the heart and sincerity we put in our music." For co-founding drummer Monte Yoho, the journey is both bittersweet and jubilant. "I still think about the friends we made when we first came into this industry, how we struggled to define this thing that became known as 'Southern Rock'," Yoho says. "This new album embodies all the things we shared musically and personally, as well as the relationships we have with our fans to this day. It's about where we've been, where we're going, and why we still love to do this."
