The Long Run
Since their debut in 1999 THE LONG RUN - Experience The Eagles has earned its place among the top-drawing tribute acts in North America and is widely-regarded as the finest Eagles tribute show in the world. Marked by lush vocal harmonies and exceptional musical accuracy, every TLR performance delivers a reverence for the beloved Eagles' studio recordings blended with The Long Run's own, live-concert energy. Packed with hits like TAKE IT EASY, WITCHY WOMAN, NEW KID IN TOWN, LIFE IN THE FASTLANE, HOTEL CALIFORNIA, DESPERADO, LYIN' EYES, THE LONG RUN, PEACEFUL EASY FEELING, ONE OF THESE NIGHTS, ROCKY MOUNTAIN WAY, HEARTACHE TONIGHT, I CAN'T TELL YOU WHY and many more, this concert is a family-friendly show with something for everyone!

Rachel and the Kings
Singer-songwriter, Rachel James, a classically trained pianist and Denver based artist, began recording her first album solo. At the completion of the album, Rachel had emerged as a full-fledged bandleader and front woman for an explosive symphonic indie pop/rock ensemble she dubbed “The Kings” in deference to her cohorts as “kings of their craft.”

You’d think a band yet to celebrate its first birthday would be bickering over whose basement is best for practice sessions, at least that’s the visual a stereotypical inauguration tends to suggest. But there’s nothing conventional about Rachel and The Kings, and the dynamo-style start the band boasts is no exception. Consider: with less than two months of official togetherdom, Rachel & The Kings won Ford’s national “Gimme the Gig II” competition, earning huge accolades from legendary producer (and head judge) Don Was. Not to mention becoming the de facto stars of “Gimme the Gig II,” which aired on KTla in late July, 2012.

Sponsors for this year’s event include: Rainbow Research Optics, Inc., Arapahoe County Open Spaces, Arapahoe County Early Childhood Council, CH2M HILL, Embassy Suites Denver Tech Center, Terracare Associates, AlloSource, Tagawa Gardens, A Team Taekwondo, Colorado Connections Academy, South Suburban Parks and Recreation District, SAFEBuilt, Car Wash Express, Prestige Fitness, Metrum Credit Union, Town & Country Foods, GolfTEC and Cottrell Printing.
