              Peter's ambition was always to lead a band dedicated to the timeless music of the Eagles, long before tribute bands became popular. He started to realise that ambition in 2009 when the first tentative steps were made in putting the band together. One of the first calls was to long-time friend Steve, an astonishingly accomplished drummer and sax player. A few ads appeared in the 'musicians wanted' columns of the local web pages and Simon saw one and joined the band.

              Over the years the guys were determined to recruit only the very best musician / singers and, after a few line-up changes, settled with the now well-established crew of Matt, Chris and Dave. Crucial to the band's live shows are high quality theatre-style lighting and crystal clear sound, mixed like an Eagles concert. Enter John and Pete whose contributions guarantee the best possible experience for the band's many fans and followers.


              Eagles formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. With five number-one singles, six Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s.

              At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California, were ranked among the 20 best-selling albums in the United States according to the Recording Industry Association of America. Hotel California is ranked 37th in Rolling Stone '​s list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" and the band was ranked number 75 on the magazine's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

              Eagles are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records—100 million in the U.S. alone—including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California. "Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)" was the best selling album of the 20th century in the U.S. They are the fifth-highest-selling music act and the highest-selling American band in U.S. history.


              Some kind words from event organisers and guests

              Hi guys - Just a line or two to say a huge thank you to you all for playing such an awesome performance at our Summer Open Nationals event last Saturday. You had them in the palms of your hands from the off, and rightly so. I hope you enjoyed being there as much as we enjoyed having such a great bunch of guys doing the honours for us on stage. Excellent stuff.

              Motel California were absolutely fantastic in every way. Great music and the singer has an amazing voice. Great guys and totally professional.

              Everyone enjoyed them - from our relatives in their twenties to my mates in their fifties and sixties. I would recommend them to anyone who likes good music.
