The Los Angeles-based national touring tribute band Boys of Summer will perform the hits of the Eagles during a free concert at Brookings’ Azalea Park at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26.
As an added bonus, the Curry County Cruisers car club will display a variety of classic cars on the lawn during the concert.
The Boys of Summer play to capacity crowds across America, creating the sounds and harmonies of the Eagles, focusing on the band’s 1970s and ’80s songbook of country-tinged ballads such as “Peaceful Easy Feeling” to the hard-rocking hits such “Heartache Tonight” and “Life in the Fast Lane.”
The concert comes at the same time that the Eagles’ greatest hits collection surpassed Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as best-selling album of all time.
The Boys of Summer, which started out in 2004 as a Don Henley act, features James Williamson on drums and vocals, Darrel Monson on guitar and vocals, Chad Quist on guitar and vocals, Chris Turbis on keyboards, saxophones, acoustic guitar and vocals, David Williams on guitar and vocals, Richard Berglund on bass and vocals, and Jerry Schaeffer on bass/vocals.

Music fans are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs for seating. The snack shack, operated by the Rotary Club of Brookings Harbor, will offer hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos and beverages.
In case of bad weather, the concert will move indoors to the nearby Kalmiopsis Elementary School at 650 Easy St.
