7 Bridges: The Ultimate EAGLES Experience is a stunningly accurate tribute to the music of the Eagles. Using no backing tracks or harmonizers, 7 Bridges faithfully re-creates the experience of an Eagles concert from the band’s most prolific period. Every show features one brilliant hit single after another with some mighty Don Henley and Joe Walsh surprises sprinkled into the mix. 7 Bridges offers the perfect blend of songs to capture all levels of Eagles devotees.

7 Bridges is a tour de force of talent combining incredible musicianship, vocal precision and a stage presence that has garnered them nationwide acclaim. The band features Jason Manning as Glenn Frey, Keith Thomas as Don Henley, Bryan Graves as Randy Meisner/Timothy B. Schmit, Rob Evans as the eccentric and unpredictable Joe Walsh, Blake Hall as guitar wizard Don Felder, and Vernon Roop as Joe Vitale, the often unsung hero of many Eagles studio albums and live performances.

7 Bridges provides an all age, family friendly show weaved into a powerful rock-n-roll concert experience. The perfect entertainment package!!

A Nashville-based musician with a Midwestern upbringing, Griffin House spikes his pop/rock songwriting with a dose of traditional, atmospheric Americana.

House was born and raised in Ohio, where he eventually discovered his musical gifts while attending Miami University in Oxford. Inspired by Bruce Springsteen, Woody Guthrie, and the Mermaid Avenue albums by Wilco and Billy Bragg, House embraced the craft of songwriting and issued several albums as an independent artist. His mix of sentimental melodies, ambient guitars, and sparse arrangements attracted attention from Nettwerk, a Vancouver-based record label, and House soon partnered with the label’s American branch to issue Lost & Found in 2004. Several self-released albums followed, and House signed with RCA before issuing Flying Upside Down, a folk-rock album recorded with members of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers.

Although originally available digitally in 2007, the record was released in stores early the following year, followed in 2010 by his second album for the Nettwerk label, The Learner. ~Andrew Leahey
