"I've been working with THE BOYS OF SUMMER for several years now. I had heard their audio demo, but never had a chance to see the band live. We booked them on one of our special events, Raley Field's Rhythm & Ribs in Sacramento this past September. We finally got a chance to see and hear the band live. I can tell you that they were superb! Another of our acts was on that show, scheduel to play right after B.O.S. The band leader told me later that when they pulled up to the back of the stage to unload, they thought that a Don Henley CD was blasting from the P.A. system on the break! It was Boys Of Summer! What more can I say? They sound like Henley and Eagles records! What else could you hope for?"

Enjoyed your show very much. You keep it true to form and very close to the real deal.The lead vocalist sounds very much like Henley. With my eyes closed it felt like being at a Henley show. My kids loved it when you played the Ataris hit "Boys of Summer" ha ha ha. Thank you for a very entertaining evening. Will be seeing you again.

Bio

Sometime in the 60’s, an unknown band called Shilo hits Los Angeles from Texas. The band was led by singer, songwriter, comedian Richard Boden. Their drummer, a curly haired vocalist named Don, Henley that is.

We’re not sure what happened to Shilo, only that Don Henley connected with singer, songwriter Glen Frey, who was recording and performing with J.D. Souther in a band called “Long Branch Penny Whistle”. Glen and Don formed a band that created the California sound. They called themselves “The Eagles”, the rest of the story is well-documented history.

Don Henley wrote, sang, and played drums with flawless meter. He sang with searing textured lead, and back up vocals. He led the band to heights no so called “country rock” band had ever climbed to.

Life after “The Eagles” for Don Henley was a display of the man’s intellect, heart, poise, emotion, and cause. Each solo album with a different feel, attitude, and contribution by some of the finest musicians and songwriters alive today. With every release one thing remains obvious, this man can sing the bolts out of a battleship, high or low, soft or hard, sweet or soulful. He does it all, no one compares!

It is with this in mind and with the deepest respect for Mr. Henley and his work, we hope to recreate a fraction of the experience that is the music of Don Henley. We can only hope it is as fun for you as it has been for us, and we look forward to sharing that experience with you.
