The Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts this evening launches the sixth season of the Summer of Music at Two Rivers Park when The Long Run, an Eagles tribute band, re-creates the sound that made the Eagles one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time.

When five of the busiest musicians in Colorado crossed paths — Mark Trippensee, Steven Weinmeister, Adam Rey, Reece Morse and Bil Hopkins — then took the results of years of honing their musical chops and decided to pay tribute to the singular sound and impact of the Eagles, The Long Run was born.

Opening for Long Run is the Jazz Aspen Snowmass student band. Tonight, the band is 20 strong with students and faculty representing five area schools.

The Center for the Arts gives a big thanks to the donor/sponsors that consistently support the arts and make this annual series possible: Alpine Bank, city of Glenwood Springs, Coldwell Banker, Bighorn Toyota, KMTS, Glenwood Springs Brew Garden, Balcomb and Green PC, Garfield County, Gould Construction, Climate Control, Garfield and Hecht PC, the Post Independent, Lowes, 19th Street Diner, Glenwood Hot Springs, Stifel, Redi Services LLC, Hotel Colorado, First Line Security, Dominos, Masonic Lodge #65, Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association and Gran Farnum Printing.

The Business of the Week is Alpine Bank. Bob Young and Bill Sanderson work with the center throughout the year as title sponsor, funding a variety of programs and events that make possible the Art Center’s mission to “provide opportunities to create and enjoy the arts.”

Vendors include Slow Groovin’ BBQ, Gandhi’s Indian Cuisine, New Castle Diner, Sweet Coloradough, K Sea’s Wing House and Jeffreeze award-winning Italian sorbetto. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a donation.
