One of These Nights …

Coming to Berwick

A TRIBUTE to The EAGLES

www.893krock.com )    

K-Rock 893   and the Berwick and District Lions club have teamed up to sponsor their third annual musical fundraiser which will held on Saturday September 1st in the Berwick & District School. The music for the past two has seen a celebration of the music of the sixties with a tribute to the Beatles and last year a ‘60's invasion’.

This year the focus moves forward a decade and will bring to Berwick a band who will pay homage to one of the most popular bands of the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Lions club member and event organizer Mark Hansford said " we are delighted to be able to announce that this year the Canadian Eagles tribute band 'One of these nights' are coming to town to entertain us with many of the most popular songs from this iconic band".

Details of the event were launched on local radio station 89.3 K-Rock by morning DJ Darrin Harvey on Monday July 16th - the day tickets went on sale. The event is being staged as part of Berwick’s 73rd Gala Day celebrations which will have a greater musical bias this year, with many local musicians performing throughout the three days of festivities.

Montreal based ‘One of these nights’, have been performing as an Eagles tribute band since 2006, and they tour throughout Eastern Canada, building a significant following and fan base from Toronto to the Maritimes.

It’s clear that the band get a real kick from what they do, as founder band member Romy Belanger commented. “It’s the Eagles because of the cool songs, the vocal harmonies and the different styles we need to get right, to make sure we get the right sound”. Romy continued, “The real fun part for us – which I only realized after we starting touring – is watching the audience light up when they hear their favourite song. That’s priceless”.

The Eagles have sold over 150 million records so far, with the Greatest Hits album selling a massive 42 million copies and the Hotel California album coming in second with 32 million!

“This year we promise a very special evening and we’re raising money for great causes in the process”, added Hansford. “One of our key beneficiaries this year will be the Grand View Manor appeal for fund to help purchase a new, and much needed, mini-bus, so we’ll be doing some new and different things as part of the evening to help the cause.

 

The Berwick & District Lions Club have raised over $15,000 from the previous two music events and are hoping to continue this success this year.

Tickets cost $25 until end of July, then $30 from 1st August and are available from a number of retail outlets throughout the Valley, on-line or from any member of the Berwick Lions Club.
