The music of the Eagles, including such hits as “Take It Easy,” “Heartache Tonight” and “Witchy Woman,” will be performed in concert at 8 p.m. Dec. 4 by Hotel California in “A Salute to The Eagles.”

For more than two decades, Hotel California has been known for faithfully and accurately reproducing the sound of the Eagles studio recordings, while recreating the group’s classic California sound of rock, country, and rhythm and blues.

The band features five multitalented musicians who perform 150 to 200 shows a year, including festivals and concerts, corporate functions, benefits and fairs, both a top of the bill act and opening for some of the most prominent names in the entertainment industry.

Each concert presents a showcase of the Eagles mega-hits, including “Desperado,” “Take It to the Limit,” “Lying Eyes,” “Hotel California,” and “Get Over It.” The group also performs songs from the solo works of Eagles members Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Joe Walsh.

The show incorporates Hotel California’s renowned vocal harmony and authentic instrumentation, including all specialty instruments, in a stage show that has gained recognition worldwide.

The group has performed at Disneyland and California Adventure, the Orange County Performing Arts Pavilion, in New York’s Central Park, the Laughlin River Run, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota, Pacific Northwest Expo, Epcot Center, and many other venues nationwide.

Hotel California members are Dicky-Lee Dickinson, guitar and vocals; Wade Hogue, keyboard, guitar and lead vocals; Phil Rowland, drums and percussion; Scott Fronsoe, bass and vocals; and Steve Probst, guitar and vocals.

The Eagles formed in Los AngEles in 1971 with members Frey, Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner. Don Felder joined the group in 1974.

Leadon left the band in 1975 and was replaced by Walsh. When Meisner left the group in 1977, Timothy B. Schmit joined the band.

The band was considered one of the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. The Eagles had five No. 1 singles, won six Grammys, and had six No. 1 albums. Two of their albums, “Their Greatest Hits (1971- 1975) and “Hotel California,” were among the 20 best-selling albums in the U.S.

The Eagles broke up in 1980 but reunited in 1994, and have toured and recorded off and on since then. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. Members Frey, Henley, Schmidt and Walsh all have had very successful solo careers.
