Aaron Solomon

Eagles tribute coming to Ponoka

Tribute show will be at the Ponoka Golf Club

As part of their “Summer Tour ‘22,” the Canadian duo Marty Jones and Aaron Soloman will be appearing at an exclusive dinner show at the Ponoka Golf Club on July 26.

One of America’s most storied bands, The Eagles was formed in 1971 by Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, all former players in Linda Ronstadt’s backup band.

During their lengthy career, they toured the world, earned five American Music awards, six Grammys and were inducted into The Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. They sold 150 million records, including six number one albums.

Their Greatest Hits compilation sold 42 million copies, making it the top-selling American album of the 20th century. Their hit single Hotel California sold 32 million copies and defined their image for eternity.

In 1996, after a 16-year hiatus, they launched their Hell Freezes Over tour, which was the start of an even more successful phase of their career.

In 2016, founding member Glenn Frey passed away and was replaced by his son Deacon.

The Eagles’ world-wide popularity and extensive repertoire of hits has made Eagles tributes a mini industry.

Jones, a founding member of the Eagles tribute band “Desperado” and Soloman, a member of the tribute band “Eagle Eyes,” put a new spin on the concept by focusing mainly on Don Henley and Glenn Frey, the band’s principal songwriters and lead singers.

Using a clever mix of live vocals and guitars, mixed with specially produced music tracks, these seasoned entertainers, who have been friends for decades, seem to effortlessly recreate the unmistakable sound of The Eagles.

Their show runs the gamut of Eagles hits, from Peaceful Easy Feeling, Lyin’ Eyes, Take It Easy and Tequila Sunrise through Desperado, Life In The Fast Lane and of course the inimitable Hotel California.
