Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that Desert Highway – a Tribute to The Eagles – will perform at Eisenhower Park’s Lakeside Theatre on Friday, August 19th at 8:00 p.m.
Since its formation, Desert Highway – A Tribute to the Eagles – continues to captivate and entertain major audiences. They attribute this achievement by performing a non-stop journey via numerous radio hits, top ten singles, and album favorites. Both musically and visually, they present a raw energy of excitement and sound of the Eagles. Desert Highway is a passionate group of six talented professionals of studio and concert tour veterans with major recording artists, who together perform ‘live’ the inspired rich vocal harmonies and intricate guitar styles made famous by this legendary group. The members of Desert Highway include: Mike Green – lead vocals, guitars; Larry Lippman – lead vocals, drums; Carl Bova – bass, vocals; Rich Naso – guitars; Ed Betancourt – guitars, vocals; and Mitch Lied – keyboards.
Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
