Heartache Tonight  An Eagles Concert Experience 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 this show; all vocal harmonies and guitar parts are faithful to the originals and performed live. This is a real concert experience featuring all the timeless classic songs from one of the greatest rock bands of all time. 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. The six multi-talented members of Heartache Tonight have shared stages with some of the biggest names in rock including Jimmy Buffett, Joe Cocker and the Doobie Brothers and have played festivals and performing arts centers across the country; the Taste of Chicago, Ravinia Festival and Wrigley Field to name a few. A Heartache Tonight concert is filled with moments designed to thrill classic rock fans: the soaring a cappella harmonies of “Seven Bridges Road,” the snarling guitars of “Life in the Fast Lane,” the anthemic country rock of “Take it Easy”, and the beautifully evocative “Heart of the Matter.” Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re hearing the real thing.
Diamond Rio Six-time Vocal Group of the Year, Diamond Rio won their first Grammy for their album The Reason on Word Records, which also garnered the band their first Dove award.  Formed in 1984, Diamond Rio features lead singer Marty Roe, guitarist Jimmy Olander, drummer Brian Prout, keyboardist Dan Truman, bassist/harmony Dana Williams and Gene Johnson on mandolin/harmony.  The band signed with Arista in the early 90's and embarked on one of the most successful careers in country music. The band has sold over 10 million albums earning three platinum and five gold records and won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year award four times as well as netting two Academy of Country Music Awards in the top Vocal Group of the Year category and thirteen GRAMMY ® nominations. When they debuted in 1991 with the hit “Meet in the Middle,” Diamond Rio became the first group in the history of country music to have a debut single reach No. 1. They continued to place 32 more singles on the Billboard chart, including “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “Norma Jean Riley,” “Beautiful Mess," “Love a Little Stronger," and "One More Day."  The band are long-time supporters and National Spokespersons for Big Brothers Big Sisters and have raised over 1.5 million dollars for the charity to date through annual events including golf tournaments and Team Rio, a marathon and half marathon group.
