7:00 PM – AMERICAN ENGLISH

American English is simply the best Beatle tribute story of our time. At the inception of the band, they were voted “number one” by thousands of Beatle fans as winners of sound a like contests at Beatlefest® for three consecutive years.  They have also won Illinois Entertainer of the Year and have been voted “Best Tribute Band” three of the last four years by their fans in the Chicagoland area. Their demand here and abroad, coupled with their spectacular fan base, has anchored them into a professional setting, and launched them into larger venues and theaters worldwide.

6:00 PM – Serendipity

Serendipity is a stroke of sonic good fortune forged from the El Rey Music scene in Arlington Heights. The band has come together fairly recently, but has talent that far exceeds the sum of its experience. These girls are young, but take them lightly at your own peril. Many older musicians have been left in their wake as they rack up win after win at competitions around the NW suburbs.

With Serendipity, a seasoned sound carries stirring vocals that pierce the noise of the local band scene.

6:30 PM – Heartache Tonight

From the powerful guitar duel in “Hotel California” to the shimmering harmonies of “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” Heartache Tonight delivers a true Eagles concert experience.

With meticulous attention to every detail, Heartache Tonight brings together music from all eras and incarnations of this huge rock powerhouse that produced hits over four decades.

There are no pre-recorded backing tracks in the Heartache Tonight show; all vocal harmonies and guitar parts are faithful to the originals and performed live. There is no “choreography;” no leather pants, no cowboy hats! Just hit song after hit song from one of the greatest rock bands of all time, performed by tremendously talented musicians with perfection and passion.

There are other Eagles tribute shows – but none as exciting and powerful or as true to the original spirit of the Eagles as this one.
