Colorado’s very own The Long Run, an Eagles tribute band, will perform Saturday night, March 7, at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge to benefit Domus Pacis Family Respite. Well-known along the Front Range for music that is true to the original band, the group plays the full range of iconic Eagles hits.
“We can do the early stuff they did that was bluegrass influenced, but we can also turn around and rock with the best of them because we are that versatile,” said Steve Weinmester, the group’s lead vocal and previous ’70s Firefall band member.
“I could not believe it. The band was spot on; their vocals, harmonies and instrumentals were amazing. I closed my eyes and thought I was listening to an Eagles CD. They just rocked ‘Life in the Fast Lane,’” said Vince White-Petteruti, who, with his wife, Duck, founded Domus Pacis in 2008. “The Long Run’s music flashed me back to my years in the ’70s.”
Mark Trippense, the band’s originator, started looking for musicians in 2008 who would fit the music of the iconic band made famous in the 1970s with albums such as “Hotel California” and “The Long Run.” As musicians came and went, the band drew in Weinmeister, Doug Krause, Ken Robinson and Adam Rey as members who exemplified the music of the Eagles. With various talents in vocals, keyboard, guitars, mandolin, percussion and piano, each artist has more than 25 years of production and musical experience.
“We stand apart from other similar tribute bands because the band members have the skills to play the full range of Eagles hits,” Trippense said.
The night will benefit Domus Pacis’ mission of providing families going through their cancer journey with a week of respite in Summit County’s High Country.
“This is the first show of the 2015 Domus Pacis’ Family Concert Series,” White-Petteruti said. “The Riverwalk concerts are a great awareness platform for Domus Pacis. They provide access to much-needed donated second homes, community exposure and financial support.”
