The Boys of Summer, one of the top tribute bands playing the music of the legendary Eagles, come to nest at the Slidebar in Fullerton this Saturday, December 2 for a live show. The Boys, who grew up as friends and musicians in LA, have made quite a name for themselves, touring nationwide and attracting the attention of quite a few people. As Chris Turbis, keyboardist/acoustic guitar/vocals/sax for The Boys put it, “Don Henley himself recently found out about us and our Boys Of Summer project.Reportedly, he was tickled pink that we were keeping it alive…”
Jimmy Williamson, the drummer for The Boys, put it this way— “We are honored to continue on the flame of Glenn Frey and we don’t do a show without letting the people know…Glenn lives through us and we will continue to acknowledge that at all our shows”.
The Slidebar Rock and Roll Kitchen in Fullerton (written about in the LA Beat here) has over the last few years become one of the top places for music, drinks and food in Orange County. Located in the historic downtown section of Fullerton, it is a great place to do for an evening of rock, from tribute bands to original rock bands. Jimmy said, “Yeah, it’s a blast playing the Slide Bar. Something so fun in the afternoon in Fullerton, it’s packed and the fans come out in droves”. Chris Turbis added, “The Slidebar has become THE Hotspot in the OC as far as Live Music goes. They have committed to having live music being at the forefront of their mission statement. Jeremy and A. Jay Popoff (LIT band) have brought their dream to reality in The Slidebar. We very much look forward to playing there each and every time. It’s just a fun place”.
The show, which encompasses the career of the Eagles, is sure to please both old fans of the group as well as those just discovering the music of the Eagles. The Boys of Summer are excellent at recreating the energy of a live Eagles concert. The Boys consist of James Williamson, drums and vocals; Darrel Monson, guitar and vocals; Craig T. Fall, guitar and vocals; Chris Turbis, keyboardist/acoustic guitar/vocals/sax; and Jerry Schaefer, bass and vocals. With the plus of seeing them at The Slidebar, with their excellent food and drink and plenty of rooms, this is bound to be a great day for a show, whether you want to Take it Easy or live it up as Life in The Fast Lane.
