THE BOYS OF SUMMER
In the words of Tom Petty, "The Drummer is The most important member of any group,” and Jimmy Williamson holds true to that thought right down to the bone. He’s as solid as a rock.
Jimmy Boy (as he's fondly been dubbed) studied the drums formally while growing up, and his father was a huge musical inspiration, surrounding him with people like Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and more!!
Working with acts like Toto, REO, Stevie Nicks, Robben Ford, Joe Sample and Lee Ritenour, he saw how it was done on the highest of levels, and now he finally gets to put all his knowledge into action on his own behalf, and of course, ... all while living the dream.
Darrel is our voice crafting expert. He can change his voice about as fast as Don Rickles or Billy Crystal… (Even though he thinks he’s Tommy Smothers.) It doesn’t hurt that his family was touring all across the Midwest doing Gospel concerts all before he was even a teenager. No sir, it didn’t hurt at all.
When he first heard The Beatles in 1964, he knew what he wanted to do and as well, the moment he first heard the Eagles, he knew the sound he wanted. That’s all she wrote. That was it for him. The whole enchilada.
He has been involved in many musical efforts through the years (no name dropping), but none have been as fun as playing and singing the songs of the Eagles for Eagle fans!
We call him Scout Master as he’s an avid fisherman and explorer, but what truly makes him happy is the interaction with the fans….. Playing Eagles music comes from much love and respect for their songwriting...Truly..
Chris is our Piano, Orchestra, Guitar and Banjo Player who even plays a little Sax! He’s our resident wild man, and when he’s not out on the road, he keeps busy as a Location Chef in the TV & Film Industry.
Classically trained on the piano from very early childhood, he’s played and toured in various bands including The Regulators, Alligator Stew, Wyldsky, Kelli & The ShadowMen, and his rock’n’roll life started somewhere on the Sunset Strip back in the early 80’s. Some of the awards he's won are Best Keyboard Player 2004 in the AAMA Awards, & Video of the Year 2004.
He has as well been in direct support bands for acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Motley Crue, Blue Oyster Cult, The Guess Who, Great White, Poison, Delbert McClinton, Rare Earth, Ted Nugent, Marshall Tucker Band, & many more...

Craig’s our “Rock Star” on the right. He started his professional touring career in his early 20’s, and has played on hit records with some serious cats. Little Steve Wonder, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Spinners, Roger Miller, Glen Campbell, and the Beach Boys just to name a few!
Watch him play and you’ll quickly realize why he’s been an “in the hunt” musician for a long long time. Currently, Craig runs a recording studio in Los Angeles, and is still keeping busy making records.
Jerry has paid his dues, and has worked his way up to playing at this level. As Chris Turbis and Jimmy Williamson put it, "Jerry is one of those players that wouldn't have lasted 10 minutes in LA without gettin' the call. Fortunately for us, he spent his early playing days in Colorado where he wasn't as noticed as he would've been in a major market."
