The 'Eagles' come to town Thursday
Tribute band 7 Bridges to perform at Statesboro High

            The Eagles have sold tens of millions of albums since their debut in 1971 and they still draw huge crowds to concerts every year. 7 Bridges Band is the best-known Eagles tribute band and they will bring "the ultimate Eagles experience" concert to the Statesboro High School auditorium on Thursday at 7 p.m.
        The expert musicians and vocalists of the Nashville, Tenn., band recreate the experience of an Eagles concert, featuring one popular hit after another with some Don Henley and Joe Walsh surprises sprinkled into the mix.
        Tickets are available online at, or at the Statesboro Herald office, the Statesboro Visitors and Convention Bureau, online at or from a Public Foundation Trustee.
        Rolling Stone magazine said: "Using no backing tracks or harmonizers, 7 Bridges faithfully re-creates the experience of an Eagles concert...note for note. The perfect blend of songs, musicianship and onstage charisma has earned 7 Bridges their glowing reputation as one of the finest tribute acts in the country."
        Since its creation in 2006, the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education has funded nearly 200 innovative projects for Bulloch County teachers with grants totaling more than $150,000.
